Logroño in Spain

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

So we started off with some Campo Viejo Cava, some nice ham and piparras. That sort of started off the evening very nice;)

At the next place we had tomato salad and a nice Rioja. We stood out at the street eating, drinking and just enjoyed ourselves!

And then some calamares and sepia. And some more Rioja;)

The sepia was the best ever! Loved it!

We ended the night at a really nice place (2 forks) with some beautiful Rioja from Campo Viejo and some tasty Cecina (from de León)

We also had some dessert, but I didn’t manage to take a picture..

Din Tai Fung

This Taiwanese/Chinese restaurant is addictive! We went for some of my favourites, tossed wild vegetable and beancurd with sesame oil, string bean with minced pork and mini dry shrimps, steamed chicken dumplings, steamed vegetarian dumplings and spicy wontons.

Interesting facts; Founder Yang Bingyi was born in Shanxi, China. But he moved to Taiwan in 1948 as a result of the Chinese Civil War. He worked for 2 different cooking oil retailers, until he started his own cooking oil shop with his wife in 1958. The name was a combination of his previous employer’s company name Heng Tai Fung and his new supplier’s company name DinMei Oils. Din Tai Fung was founded. 1970 business became slow. So they turned over half the shop to making and selling steamed buns (Xiaolongbao) by hiring chefs from Shanghai where the Xiaolongbao is originally from. The buns and noodles were so popular that the store stopped selling oil and became a restaurant in 1972. The original restaurant is located on Xinyi Road in Taipei. In an article published on January 17, 1993, the New York Times rated Din Tai Fung as one of the top ten gourmet restaurants in the world (Din Tai Fung was the only Chinese or Taiwanese restaurant to receive this accolade).
Further international recognition came in 2010, when Din Tai Fung’s Hong Kong Branch was awarded one Michelin Star; a first for a restaurant from Taiwan.
Today, Din Tai Fung has branches in Japan, the United States, South Korea, Singapore, China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Australia, and Thailand.

 

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.

We had tomato risotto, scallops, chicken and for dessert a vanilla panacotta.

He had use the OBH Nordica sous vide machine for the veggies and the chicken. And he had used the OBH Nordica actifryer for the chocolate at the panacotta. It all tasted divine!!
