Pulled pork ragu

pulled pork ragu asparagus and egg yolk

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

Mezze with roast shoulder of lamb

roast shoulder of lamb

There is something so comforting about a Sunday roast. In our house we are spending a little bit of extra time together and if we are lucky it is time to catch up with friends as well. I  went to the Saturday market to get a chicken but I got side tracked and came home … Continue reading

Dim sum – pork & prawns, kimchi, and scallop siu mai

Assorted dumplings

The other week I read that one of my favorite dim sum restaurants had closed. There are plenty in London but this one had some unique and very delicious dim sum. Reading about it made me crave dumplings and I thought I would invite some friends around and make us a batch. One of them … Continue reading

Cantonese pork belly

Cantonese pork belly

There is one thing I can’t resist and that is pork belly. This is possibly one of the things that would stop me from going vegetarian or even vegan. I would order it on a menu and I would absolutely cook it as a special treat. I love the soft, melt in your mouth meat … Continue reading

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

Plenty of cooking for the holidays!

Bacon turkey

Every year I approach Christmas with slight apprehension. The truth is that I am not really a Christmas person. No matter what I think or feel, Christmas does turn up every year and  I will always go with the flow and make the most of it. December 24th is when I celebrate Christmas so I … Continue reading

I believe that everyone has some foodie weakness. For many it is chocolate or bacon. For me, I am a complete cheese addict and am always a sucker for some pork belly, what is yours? If you only cook low fat, healthy and low in sugar and salt food, please stop reading now. This is so … 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

Pork belly, smoked in the Beast

The most fun event of last week was that my neighbour bought a smoker. It is a humdinger of a smoker and we have been plotting what to cook in it ever since he ordered it a couple of months ago. The thing about living on our street is that everyone is super easy going, loves … Continue reading
