I had the honor to get invited to this years New Years Celebration at Grand Hotel in Stockholm by the Chinese Embassy. I dressed up with a touch of red and entered with my friend Mr Baijiu (Ludde). Mr Baijiu is not his name, but he is the number one importer of Baijiu in Sweden, so I have named him that. There is not much about Baijiu that he doesn’t know.
The number one restaurant at Bali! Luxury food to an affordable price and with a very laid back feeling in a fantastic setting. Well the restaurant seems to have it all, doesn’t it? It was a very excited me that went here to eat at my recent trip to Bali. I had tried Kevin Cherkas food during San Sebastian Gastronomika in the autumn so I had a little clue what I was up for when I was going here. And I was not disappointed.
The almond paste we use for baking in Sweden is a bit different to the ordinary marzipan. It has some more almonds in it. And we use it frequently when we bake. Marzipan has a higher sugar content and I think this is nicer to use for baking. In Sweden I can buy a ready made one, but as I lived abroad a lot this was my saviour. Or just when I don’t have it at home and I get a feeling for baking with almond paste.
