We got to make the same salad that will be served at Sthlm Food & Wine the 9 – 11 th of November. There will be a Chef’s Restaurant with different famous Swedish chefs cooking. So there will be some pretty amazing food during the fair!

Well we were cutting, pulling, grilling.. And when we were all done. Then it was time to eat this fab salad we had been making. Recipe will come! And the sauce was amazing! You have to try it!

Birthday

So it was my birthday yesterday. And when my husband asked what I wanted to eat, then I told him that I wanted some of the nice ham and cheese that I brought home from Logrono in Spain. So we just added some shrimps, avocado and some other things. And had a very simple but nice meal.

Sometimes easy is the best!

Jerusalem Artichoke soup

This is my favourite soup! And I always make a lot of it, normally I have a sandwich to it. But I didn’t have that at home..

Recipe for 3-4 persons

8 Jerusalem Artichokes (about 500 grams)

2-3 shallots

3 dl of vegetable stock

2,5 dl of cream

What to do?

Peel the Jerusalem artichokes, and cut into pieces.

And peel and slice the shallots.

Then you sweat them.

When that is done throw it all into your mixer. Swish!!

And then you add the cream, let it all simmer for some minutes.

Dinner is ready!

L’Avventura studio

I was invited to the Nespresso Vertuo launch the other day at newly opened L’Avventura studio. The food was amazing, and it all had a Coffee touch in it!

Nice table setting
Look at those veggies, standing in coffee beans.
Great table
I loved the carpaccio

And the New Nespresso Vertuo was easy to handle! And tasted super good!!

Such a clean beautiful design

Broccoli soup

When my kids get to choose a soup, then they always choose broccoli soup. And my son makes a grilled cheese sandwich to have on the side with it.

So my very easy recipe is like this.

Fresh or frozen broccoli (like a head, clean it. But use the whole head.

2 potatoes, peeled and in small pieces

1/2 yellow onion

Boil in water, with vegetable stock. As much water as it just covers the broccoli.

When they start to get soft , just throw it all into a mixer. Swish!

And then heat it up again with 1 dl of cream. Add some salt and pepper. And Voila, it is ready to eat!
