Forgotten strawberries, elderflower curd and frozen herbs

Us Northerners are rather good at storing foods, fruits and leftovers in the freezer. 67 % of us do it. But the freezer should not be- come a graveyard for the things we do not want to consume right now, but just a stop along the way towards something tasty. Therefore, this dish has frozen forgotten strawberries and paste made from an entire lemon. Not just the juice or the zest. Läs mer




















Baba Ghanouj

EBEDA823-E944-4E9B-80A0-A302D86DE8CBBaba ghannouj is some serious stuff to make. And I make it just the way as my Lebanese top chef friend taught me! And she would strangle me if I put them in the owen! You cannot get the really smokey taste that way! So put the egg plant at the barbecue and let it stay there until it is soft and burned on all sides. Läs mer

Beer can chicken at our friends place. The can has beer and herbs in it, and the chicken gets a nice flavour. When you put it on the grill, make  sure the lid is on. It takes 1-1,5 hour. And you can add some rub on the outside.

Per made a nice sauce made with some cream, syrup and some stock. And a salad and potatoes. 91C04C5C-5B0E-4213-B926-2ED3FC59581765825F02-48D5-40E6-8C22-C9DD8C49E0A5


Dinner at our place

We had some friends over for dinner, and Lars was in charge over the starter. Carpaccio, an old classic that we haven’t eaten for 10 Years. I wonder why, it is so nice!! He added parmesan, ruccola and olive oil. And lots of pepper. As a main, chicken in the owen with jus as they say in France.

Recipe for the chicken;

1 corn chicken (or as many as you like)              

Mix butter with crushed garlic, and put it under the skin of the chicken.  Salt and pepper all around.                                          

Put it into the owen for 45 minutes on 225 C, and then 30 more minutes on 175C. Make sure the chicken is totally cooked!

The “jus”

Simmer the chickens sauce with red wine, salt and pepper until it becomes a bit thick.

We served the meal with potatoes and sallad.

And the sallad on the side that was really really nice!!

Recipe for the sallad;

Make a vinaigrette first;                                

2 tbl spoons pumpkin seed oil
1/2 dl sake or mirin
1 1/2 tbl Spoon rice winegar
1/2 dl japanse soy sauce
1 1/4 dl olive oil
salt and pepper                                                

Mix it all really well

For the sallad;                                              

150 gram fresh haricots verts
4 apples that you peel and cut into pieces
2 shallots
3 table Spoons sugar
1 tbl spoon olive oil
1 tbl spoon butter
1 small bag spinach leafs  (70 g)
1 bag  mixed sallad (150 g)
2 dl walnuts

Mix the apple slices with the sugar. And fry them on medium heat in a mix of butter and olive oil until they are golden.

Mix the sallad with the vinaigrette. And add the fried apples last.

 


Yummie salad

The summer is still here, and what can be better than a salad, Tsatsiki and some  Baba Ghanoush.  The way to do it I’ve learned from some Lebanese friends. And it is fantastic! Here is Hanady’s recipe;

1 large or 3 Long Eggplants
1 Garlic Clove
1 tablespoon Lemon Juice
2 tablespoons Tahini
Salt
To Garnish: Olive Oil, Sumac, Parsley
Instructions

Prick the eggplants with a fork and place directly on your stovetop burner. Rotate the eggplants to get an even char on all sides. When all sides are charred and the eggplant is soft remove from heat and set aside until they are cool.
Once cool, remove the skin and discard.
Place the peeled eggplants, garlic, lemon juice, tahini and salt in a food processor and blend until smooth.
Garnish with olive oil, sprinkling of sumac and parsley.
Serve with pita bread, cucumbers, carrots or cherry tomatoes


Home made dumplings

My kids prefer home made dumplings, or Jiaozi as they say in China.  I have to make them a few times every month.  And I always have one of the kids to help me with them. Because it takes some time to make them..

Favourite filling; minced chicken, cabbage, spring onion, garlic, fresh ginger. But the sauce is mega important!! Japanese soy sauce, rice wine and squeezed ginger all mixed together. Yum!! IMG_9888


Summer cake

IMG_9137My friend brought all the ingredients to make a cake today! Because it was Emma’s nameday, and both our daughters are named Emma.

So a meringue base, whipped cream mixed with greek yoghurt, vanilla and raspberry inside, topped with whisked cream and strawberries. And some crushed dry roasted almonds.
