Pulled pork ragu

The other morning I woke up just before sunrise. I think it was the seagulls who seemed to have a loud gathering on a neighbors rooftop. I love the sound and looking outside the sky was beautifully golden and it held the promise of a sunny day. I think it was the first day of the … Continue reading

Steak with beef jam, black pudding crumble and savoy cabbage

I think steak is an iconic dish. Most everyone will have their own preference in cut and how it is cooked and what makes the perfect side dish. After going to Native, Covent Garden London I have been thinking about their venison jam. The Black Pig Butchers didn’t have any venison but I thought that … Continue reading

Hainanese chicken and rice

Hainanese chicken and rice

People sometimes react in funny ways when I tell them that I have a blog about food. It can get even more confusing when I don’t have cuisine that is my specialty. I love new flavors and dishes and I love to experiment in the kitchen. The result is, I would guess, food inspired by … Continue reading

Carnitas filled pineapple ravioli with crispy kale

There is one dish I make for dinner guests that they all seems to fall in love with and that is crispy kale. The recipe comes from the Chinese crispy seaweed. Of course crispy seaweed is just cabbage so that made me think of using kale instead. I had an inkling of how it was … Continue reading

If you only cook low fat, healthy and low in sugar and salt food, please stop reading now. This is so … Continue reading

Slow cooked chilli beef

How about a dinner party? I love to have guests for dinner, the feeder in me comes out. Food has a lovely way of bringing people together. A good dinner party is as much about the food as it is about the chemistry around the dinner table. If there is anyone coming that I would … Continue reading

Running the pop up restaurant has me looking through a lot of recipes. This is something that I love to do but with the world wide web, the possibilities are endless. I knew I wanted to do chicken. Ever since I coked one chicken six ways I can’t stop thinking about the different ways of cooking … Continue reading

Inspired by the Swedish Wallenbergare

Wallenbergare with mushroom and ginger sauce

Every now and then I have a craving for very Swedish food. A taste of home. Sometimes Kalles Kaviar with a boiled egg or on toast will sort it out and sometimes I just have to cook something very Swedish as even IKEA is too far to go.   This time I was after a Wallenbergare. … Continue reading
