CIDER CHICKEN w/ TARRAGON AND APPLE

Oh guys, Dublin was great (no surprise there). It’s funny how you can fall in love with a city over and over again and every time you visit you find new things to love. I’ve had four days of shopping, pub crawling, walking and loads of great food. This time we stayed at the Gresham…

AUTUMNAL PORK AND CHANTERELLE STEW

I´ve had such a great week this week. Since one of my new courses is online-based I suddenly (with some planning) have so much more time on my hands. I’ve been to the hockey, meeting up with friends and tomorrow I have a lunch-date that will include ramen. Yum! I´m also preparing to leave Sweden next…

LOUISIANA STYLE PORK STEW

To be honest, I’ve been feeling a bit down this week. I guess it’s the stress of starting school that caught up on me, the teachers really went all out this semester with assignments, quizzes and cases. One evening this week, when I got home, exhausted from a especially hard day I really made this to cheer me up;…

HONEY&THYME ROASTED SALSIFY

My really small, french culinary-school teacher (I loved this teacher – not only because he had amazing skills he were so incredible french you almost thought he was faking it) called salsify “poor mans asparagus” and I think thats really clever, because it has the subtile flavors of white asparagus without breaking the bank. They look kind…

PUMPKIN AND GINGER SOUP

Tomorrow its time for my first (of two) exams before finally having some time off over christmas. It’s microeconomic principles that need to be mastered and I think I’ve got it, at least I hope so. It’s a lot of calculations and equations that have to be remembered but I can finally say that it…

HULLED BARLEY RISOTTO

This is just perfect food for the cold-season, its comforting while still pretty good for you with a ton of great fibers to keep the tummy happy. And god knows we need some warming up here in Sweden today, its first of advent, about 1 degree and ice cold rain is pouring down. First of advent…

CARROT-SOUP W/ SULTANAS

I made this soup the first time this autumn when I needed a tummy-warming soup to warm me up after walking outside and freezing for the first time this season (now its more unusual you actually doesn’t freeze). But this have been my go-to soup since then, its so easy to make but still it…

PUMPKIN AND KALE PIE

Winter just struck Sweden, last weekend we had some snow, but unfortunately it’s all gone now. Instead, its freaking cold, pitch dark at 4 and ice-cold rain is pouring down. This is also the right time to start sleeping with your socks on, because if one foot accidentally touches another part of your body while you…
