The perfect dish when you are lazy. And you can use halloumi instead of sausage! Fry it a bit before you add it to the sauce!
In Sweden we use a bigger sausage called falukorv. The sausage is made of a grated mixture of smoked pork and beef or veal with potato starch flour, onion, salt and some mild spices. It is a cooked sausage, so you can eat it cold. I normally fry it, or put it into the oven with some cheese.
But back to Sausage Stroganoff.
400-500 gram sausage, preferably Falukorv into slices.
2 finely chopped yellow onions
2 dl cream
1 dl water
1-1,5 Table spoon of tomato purée
1 table spoon Soy sauce, chinese
And some oil for cooking
What to do;
1,Fry the sausage in the oil in a saucepan for about 5 minutes. Add the onion and fry for another minute.
2, Add cream, water, tomato puree and Chinese soy sauce. Cook for about 10 minutes. You can add some wheat flour to make the sauce thicker.
Operakällaren is a very nice old classic restaurant that first opened up in 1787 in the basement of the old Opera house in Stockholm. Since then it has been torn down and a new house was built in the beginning of 19th century. It has always been a top restaurant , and yesterday I was invited to a Christmas lunch there with Huawei.
The dessert table was amazing! And I just love desserts so much!
We were in a private room situated upstairs. And I had actually never been in there!
I love the small sausages, they are called prinskorvar. Which literally means prince sausages 🤣
We eat a lot of salmon and herring at all big holidays in Sweden.
And then we have the “lutfisk” Stock fish where the dry fish has been put into lye, and then it all gets soaked in lye. And then it will get boiled. The whole procedure takes more than two weeks!
Tastes good? According to me, no. According to my colleague Tove Yes.
In Sweden we have been eating this for more than 500 years! And king Gustav the 3rd ate the fish during the whole spring apparently!
Well I stick to the rest of the food! I prefer that;)
It’s a must every Christmas! This is a simple recipe for a homemade gingerbread dough. It only takes 10 minutes to make it!
About 200 small gingerbread figures
4 dl caster sugar
2 dl light syrup
2 dl of water
250 g butter
2 tablespoons of cinnamon
1 tablespoon of milled cardamom
1 tablespoon of milled cloves
1 tablespoon of milled gingerpowder
1 tablespoon bicarbonate
15 dl of wheat flour
How to make icing:
4 dl icing sugar
1 egg white
2 tablespoons vinegar, or squeezed lemon
Add coloring if you want!
1, Pour sugar, syrup and water into a saucepan. Boil it all and then remove it from the heat.
2, Divide the butter and put it in a bowl together with the spices. Pour the hot sugar mixture and stir until the butter melts. Allow to cool to room temperature.
3, Mix flour with bicarbonate and stir it into the batter, which becomes quite loose (it swells). Work the dough with a wood or plastic fork. Leave the dough in the fridge, covered or put in a plastic bag, 1-2 days before baking it out.
4, Bake the gingerbread cookies: Set the oven to 200 C. Use a little bit at a time – it’s always easiest. Powder the baking table with some flour and the rolling pin. Cut out the gingerbread figures with a gingerbread cutter and place on a baking tray with some baking paper at it.
5, Put the baking tray into the oven at 200 C, and bake the gingerbread for 4-6 minutes. Be careful – gingerbread burns easily!!!
Add icing if you like!
Make sure the gingerbread dough is cold when you start to roll it, then it’s much easier to make gingerbread cookies. And the thinner you roll the gingerbread cookies, the crispier they get!
Yesterday I went to one of the most beautiful openings ever! The interior was smashing, and Alexander Erwik, the one that had planed the opening had done a grand job. And everywhere I looked there was something to take a picture off!
Me and Helene ❤️. Fab to have a night with a friend!
They had a whole buffet with food, and then some Santa candy;)
It’s all in the details
And Raven performed!
Over and out! Have a fun weekend wherever you are😘
Yesterday I had the pleasure of looking and cheering at the team during the hot kitchen part of the competition. I went there with Cederroth Firsth Aid Sweden. And we were a big group of supporters. No other team had as many. I hope it helped them;) At least they reached gold level yesterday!!
The Swedish team consists of:
I had the pleasure of eating the Swedish menue. And they were so worth the gold!
The starter was amazingly good, and the flavours really represented Sweden very well!
Turbot poached in grilled butter, with a variation of broccoli, turbot mousseline, preserved cucumber and lumpfish roe was the starter.
The Swedish main course was fantastic! I would love to eat it again, and again!! Fried duck breast with a mushroom from Hällestad stuffed with duck ankles and duck liver. Served with cabbage pudding, cabbage puree, black wine cream and duck jos.
Milk Chocolate and Almond Bavaroise with a Herb sorbet, Hot Choux Pastry Stuffed with Almond Toffee and Yoghurt Foam and Marinated Pears.
