A SECRET BREAKFAST

Imorse ringde det på dörren vid halv åtta och min frukost från DoMa kom med ett bud. Och 8.15 kopplade jag upp mig och tog del av Nespresso’s Secret Breakfast som skulle varit på DoMa. Men det här var ju ett perfekt sätt att göra det på. Jag fick laga mitt Nespresso kaffe precis som jag vill ha det, och åt en helt underbar frukost undertiden vi pratade om kaffe och frukostar.

Isaan in stockholm

Crab relish with Karma crackers, you can not go here without eating these!!

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.


Hotel blique by nobis

I had a staycation this weekend at Hotel Blique By Nobis in Stockholm. My first impression when I entered was that it felt like I had landed in Miami downtown. And If I would describe the hotel in two words, then it would be Raw Luxury. I have to say that staying in Stockholm at a hotel is really great, and I understand why so many people choose to do so.

You first notice the stylish Check in area

Sigurd Lewerentz designed one of the buildings in the 20th Century as a ware house and office for Philips AB, and Gert Wingårdh redesigned it into a hotel with a very gentle hand so that the soul of the building is still there. The other part of the hotel was from the beginning designed in the 1990’s by Alenius Silfverhielm Åhlund. Today the hotel is full of stylish interior, art, 2 restaurants, meeting rooms, several bars and a lot of social areas where you can enjoy different happenings. And a fantastic courtyard, I have to come back when it is a bit warmer!

Meetings, or have a drink, lot’s of options.

You find concrete, leather, wood, green plants and art all over the hotel that gives it this warm feeling of luxury. I for sure enjoyed sitting in the big open lounge sipping on my drink while I was looking at people passing.

One of the bars is located in the big entrance lounge.
I slept like a rock, the room was totally quiet!

There are 249 rooms in different sizes between and I stayed in a studio. It had a double bed, kitchenette, wide screen TV and a really big shower. The hotel also offers some windowless rooms called Sleep Deeper, that you can choose if you have a problem with the Swedish summer light or just wan’t it really dark when you sleep. I often have a problem at hotels because of light or noise, but I didn’t have this at all here!

The studio had it’s own lounge area, and you can also rent the studios for a longer period.

Stylish bathroom with beige terrazzo tiles, glass door into the big shower, heated flooring and metal fixtures. A very big plus here was that they had two different light sources. One with a more soft orange light, and the other with white light so that I could put my make up on. This is an important detail for everyone using make up, that many hotels doesn’t understand.

The breakfast buffet was a real joy, and you eat it at the reataurant at the bottom floor! They do not serve bacon and egg, but ramen, plenty of fresh juices, salmon, smoothies, freshly baked bread and much more. Breakfast is a very important for me, and sometimes I choose a hotel because of their breakfast. Blique by Nobis both had a great buffet and rooms. I would love to come back!

There is one more restaurant at the hotel, Arc Rooftop, and I will dedicate them with their own post here at the blog.

Other facts about the hotel, free and fast Wi-Fi, a gym, possibility to rent bikes.

The hotel is just a short walk from the tube and buses. The area is famous for their galleries, there is some nice shopping close by and it only takes some minutes on the tube to Stockholm City Centre.

Broms in Stockholm

Located by Karlaplan at Östermalm in Stockholm, with an easy access by tube or bus. Chef Anna Broms is running this homey bistro, bar and deli at Karlaplan in Stockholm. If I would advertise it, then it would be as “A living room away from home”.

Anyway, they serve great breakfasts here that suit all kinds of cravings! Sandwiches, chia puddings, Pain au Chocolate etc… and some really good coffee of course. Wouldn’t be a great breakfast location without it..

The lunches and dinners are a real treat as the menu is packed with things to choose from, but somehow I order their famous Salmon Sashimi very often. It is just so great and one of the reasons I go here.

Somehow I always manage to get a seat. But to make sure, book a table!

The place is packed with locals, and I normally always end up meeting someone I know there. With it’s relaxed living room feeling, this is a place where it is easy to end up chatting with the people at the table beside you. And as I love being a social butterfly, Broms is really my thing.

And if you meet Anna, she is one of the most awesome chefs in Stockholm.

Enjoy your stop here! And if you see me, say Hi;)

Cooking, cleaning and just living. Here is some of this weeks highlights!

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!

Lövgren’s Coffee launched a coffee together with Regnbågsfonden – Rainbow Foundation where some of their proceeds goes to the foundation. Jonas Gardell is one of the founders and he told us about their vision. And for me it feels pretty obvious that people should have the same fundamental rights whoever they love. But it’s not like this everywhere unfortunately. So check out their foundation at

http://www.regnbagsfonden.org

I also had a blast at Stockholm Cheese Festival where I tried out so many different kinds of cheese. I am a big cheese lover, and trying out cheese that I never had before was a great Friday joy! Looking forward to the next festival!

Oat rice, steamed and polished oat! A great alternative to rice.

Paul Svensson is one of Sweden’s most interesting chefs that is really taking a stand for what we eat. So when Frebaco launched their Oat rice he had created a bunch of recipes with the oat rice. And yes it sounds strange. But it had a nice soft flavour that went down really well. I am a big supporter of eating local food. And even if I love rice (7 years in China;) this will always be in my pantry from now on! Recipes will be posted in the week!

Me and Paul at Paul Taylor’s

Me and Sonja tried out some pizzas at newly opened Giretto. This is the place where they serve rye pizza dough pizzas!

Me and my friend Nils-Holger celebrating his wife Angela at a Hollywood themed party. I was just glamorous…

I am now on my way to Stuttgart to support, cheer and cover the Swedish Team’s while they compete! Going to be a blast!

Pizzeria Giretto in stockholm

One of Stockholm’s best pizza places now has two locations! And you really compose your own pizza. First of al you pick what size you wan’t, big or small. Then you decide if you wan’t a rye pizza base, a classic wheat flour base or a gluten free version. And what toppings.

Another great thing here is that if you normally don’t eat the crust, then you can actually order little sauces and dip the crust into it and enjoy all of the pizza!Isn’t that so clever! I hate food waste, and I love eating so this is just perfect!

There is also a choice of sallads and some nice drinks. You have a classic pizza restaurant, with a community table and a nice Italian vibe.

They will also serve Gelato, but I haven’t tried it jet. But I keep you posted about it!

It is medium priced, and good value for money!!

Danyel Couet’s Allegrine in Stockholm is a ”french” restaurant with a Swedish touch. The name comes from Danyel’s grand mother. And she was a the one that got Danyel interested of food. The interior is spot on perfect. It has a relaxed vibe, but jet everything is just right.

Celebrating Chinese New Year

I had the honor to get invited to this years New Years Celebration at Grand Hotel in Stockholm by the Chinese Embassy. I dressed up with a touch of red and entered with my friend Mr Baijiu (Ludde). Mr Baijiu is not his name, but he is the number one importer of Baijiu in Sweden, so I have named him that. There is not much about Baijiu that he doesn’t know.
