10 TIMES I FELL IN LOVE WITH FOOD

  • When picking baby carrots at my parents house straight of the ground, wiping the dirt off in the grass and eating them. Carrots have never tasted this good.
  • That veal I had at Griffins Steakhouse in Stockholm. Veal, veal sausage, red wine-reduction and a fennel salad. It was just perfect, every detail of it and I almost cried because it was so good.blueberries
  • Two summers ago when me, my best friend and her grandma decided to pick blueberries the hottest day of summer. Her grandma brought egg-sandwiches and strawberry juice and just sitting there in the middle of the forest on the ground, eating the same sandwiches as I always had as a child. Its one of my best memories.
  • That beer I had on Disneyland Paris, it was 35 degrees that day and beer have never tasted this good before.
  • And when talking about drinks, that amazing Kir Royale we had at Hotel Dorsia in Gothenburg was out of this world. The whole hotel is like stepping inside “The Great Gatsby” and their champagne-cocktails is to die for!
  • When I have been running a race (no matter if its 5K, 10K, 20K or whatever) you always get a banana and a MER (a famous brand off fruit juices here in Sweden). And that banana! It taste like the best thing you ever eaten in your whole life.
  • The carpaccio I ate two weeks ago at N.E.O here in Jönköping. I just completely fell in love with the simple perfectness of it. Nothing out of the ordinary – beef, pine nuts, olive oil and parmesan, but just perfect.hermonville
  • The picnic we had in France just beside a waterfall. The basket was filled to the brim with amazing french food, the location was almost like a dream and I was there with some of my favorite persons.
  • The gelato at “Glassfabriken” also here in Jönköping. I have the date he opens the shop again written down in my calendar, thats how much I love his gelato. I always go for white chocolate and lemon but his vanilla and coconut is amazing also!
  • When training to be a chef I made a salad-cucumber-elderflower gazpacho served with crisp bread and garlic sautéed snails. This could be my proudest moment in the kitchen ever.

    Please tell me about some times you fell in love with food 🙂

    I really enjoy your blog and that you write in English! Nice. Do you mean the meat veal? I think that’s what you mean. 🙂 For example, a veil is something a bride wears on her head. 🙂 Thanks for your food blog!

        I have friends in Sweden that I have visited. It is so beautiful there. It looks similar to where I live in Minnesota. One of my favorite food experiences was in Sweden. Here is my blog with photos about Vafflor. You might like to read it? http://wp.me/pYCz9-xp
        Glad I could help. 🙂

    Just found your blog! The pictures are beautiful and I just want to eat all your dishes!

    My greatest food-crush is quite terrible from a animal welfare point of view because it is goose liver! It is a traditional dish in Hungary where my family comes from. My grandmas beautifully cooked goose liver was to die for! She braised it in goose fat for hours and there was a piece of onion in the bottom of the pot and if you found it is was like a great bonus, sweet and caramelized.
    Thinking of it, everything she cooked was wonderful.

    Another food crush was my best friends grandmas “zakuszka”, which is similar to
    an Ajvar or Pindjur but so much more delicious! She used to make some cans during the summer when the eggplants, bellpeppers were at their peak season. She grilled all the vegetables carefully on her stove. It took hours… I asked her several times to give me the recipe, but she had none…
    Sadly she has past away now and she took the secret with her into the grave.

    It’s so sad when a whole generation of great cooks disappears.

    1. Oh thank you so much for your kind words! I just loved reading about your family, I also feel sad thinking about all those secrets they had just are gone. But in the other hand, nothing makes me think about my loved ones as when eating or seeing the food they loved to cook. I aslo wonder what dish I will teach my children that makes them think about me…
