So another week has gone by, and I was having the luck to join my friend Anna for a cooking event with Sebastian Gibrand, Sweden’s Bocuse d’Or contestant and Global knives. The theme was Japanese Street Food and I was in charge of the dessert. Fantastic evening, and so much fun hanging out with a great gang and eat some amazing food!
One of the best things you can eat according to me. And to have them oven baked like this is a real treat!Continue reading “Langoustines with garlic and parsley butter”
Enter Sandeman by Erik Moosberg at Gondolen in Stockholm. The name is inspired by one of Metallica’s lyrics.
Sayan Isaksson is creating food that is bursting of Thai flavours with as much local ingredients as possible. And this is just how food should be created today, we all have to use what we have around us as much as possible. Most of the inspiration at the restaurant is taken from the Isaan region in Thailand where both Sayan and some of the others chefs originate from.
Since I moved to China the first time in 2002, Chinese New Year has been a part of my life. And I am a bit sad to confess that we actually celebrate Chinese New Year way more than the other New Year. I am not sure why, we just do. For my kids China will always be home just like Sweden is. And I think it is nice for them to take part of both cultures. And as you might have noticed, a big part of my heart is still left in Shanghai. Chinese New Year is also called Spring Festival or Lunar New Year and it marks the first new moon in the lunisolar calendar. The Chinese lunisolar calendar is based on cycles of the earth and the moon. The legend tells a story about the villagers that chased away a beast called Nian with red colours, noise and bright lights. So there is the reason behind everybody wearing something red for the festival and the firecrackers. Today most people don’t use firecrackers anymore as it is bad for the environment. Each year is named after one of the 12 Chinese Zodiac animals. And 2020 is the year of the rat.
It started with that I was checking out Stockholm Culinary Team’s food. As it all is a secret until the competition in February I share a shot of me and Team leader Jens Ericsson. Thanks for having me!
