For English https://thefabfoodieswede.com/2020/04/22/orange-chicken/; Så otroligt gott med Orange Chicken och för mig smakar detta precis som på ett ställe vi brukade äta på i Shanghai. Det tar en stund att laga det, räkna med 1-1,5 timma totalt ungefär. Men det är så värt det. Receptet är lagom för 4 personer om man har det som en huvudrätt. Servera med ris till.Läs mer
This is my favourite soup! And I always make a lot of it, normally I have a sandwich with it. But I didn’t have that at home..

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

After a fantastic day I went to have some food. The food at Brygghuset in Fiskebäckskil is great. They are obviously as they are located by the sea serving really fresh seafood. As a starter we had a scallop with some truffle butter sauce, smoked pork and fried carrot.
And then a steamed bap bun with langoustine, chili mayo, pickled red onion, cucumber and roasted onion. Are you drooling jet?
Butter fried cod, ramson baked root fruits, shiitake, sauce with trout caviar, green pea cream and pickled beetroot.
Chocolate mousse, sorbet, meringues… And a Talisker coffee drink paired with that. Yum!
And lots of Talisker of course!
Emil created 4 different whisky drinks. Recipe will follow! I promise!
Brygghuset is owned by Reine and Jonas. They are both passionate about food, whisky and the surrounding area. And they really love their place, and that is the key to their success! They are running lots of different excursions. Look at their webpage for more info;

A tapas night in scenic Logroño is a very relaxed thing. You can go between places, order tapas and drink some cava and wine.
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.
