Cheese pie, the swedish way

In this recipe I have used a Swedish cheese called Västerbotten cheese that is a hard cows milk cheese with a little bit strong flavour. You can use Gruyere, Parmesan or a mature cheddar if you can’t get hold of the Swedish Västerbotten cheese. Västerbotten is actually a region in northern Sweden where they produce this cheese


















Rosetta Bakery

This is an awesome Italian bakery with several locations in Miami.

The pastry is made the real way, and tastes totally divine. Real berries, good custard, and yes I have to say that I’m hooked. And working for a food magazine that is not often it happens. Rosetta will be a place I always will visit when I’m in Miami.

Jazz au vin

Danyel Couet has a new concept every Thursday at his Bar Etable. Once a week they will have a live jazz band, serve wine from the big wine bottle and some food.

Relaxed, cosy and a very nice decadent feeling. bottles age more gracefully and just plain better, according to some experts, because they age at a slower pace

Midsummer in Sweden

Today we are celebrating midsummer in Sweden, wich is as important as Christmas! It’s the longest day of the year. Nearly no night at all. So we are starting off with some herring, new potatoes, some greens. And we sing, and drink schnapps. 🤪
In the afternoon we are dancing around a midsummer pole, that we have covered in flowers. We celebrate the light, the green and according to some the pole represents fertility.
And then we play some silly outdoor games. In the evening there’s a big barbecue.

Hard Rock at Universal

So we stayed at Hard Rock. It was a really great place! They had thought about every detail here. And I’m used to nice Asian hotels. The only downer at our room was that there were no light in the ceiling, so it was very cosy all the time. Wich is ok most of the time. We had a nice dinner at the Kitchen at the hotel. I had the Chinese crispy chicken sallad. It was really good! And the breakfast was fantastic! And when you stay at Hard Rock, then a express card is included.


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.

 



Lunch time

I brought my friend to one of my little favourite restaurants, and she liked it. We had chicken, Chili, onion and some other veggies. Nice and tasty.

I forgot the name of the restaurant, but it is located just opposite the Korean Market in Hongqiao.
