I went for a lunch at Gondolen in Stockholm to try out some porto from Sandeman. And it was so interesting to have it matched with food. And their white port paired perfectly with the starters.
Lamb with a chestnut mousse, mushrooms poached plums with port wine sauce and browned butter, paired with the most amazing Sandeman Spirit Vintage Port 2000 and a Sandeman Porto Vintage 2016. They were both really good, but my personal favourite was the 2000. It was the perfect match with the food. And I would like to just sit and sip on it slowly. It tasted a bit spicy, with a touch of red and dark fruits. A very pleasant flavour!
Luis Sottomayor from Sandeman talked very enthusiastic about their Port wines. And I learned a lot. Thank you‼️
Clarion Sign Hotel in Stockholm has teamed up with Marcus Samuelsson to have a greener menue at their hotels. This week they have a special menue that Marcus has created. And I have to say that it was truly amazing.
A must if your in Stockholm! They serve both Swedish classics, and the best mexican food in town! Kajsa that runs the place runned restaurants in Mexico for 5 years. Their location couldn’t be better, at the little island Skeppsholmen in central Stockholm. A must is to order a cocktail, Bella is making the most delicious drinks. Both non alcoholic, and with. So there’s no excuse! I would definitely go for the nachos as a starter. And the jumbo shrimps were divine!!
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.
