In 2009 she made an art piece, “Astrophyton Darwinium” on the ceiling of the over 100 year old bar Riche, all inspired by an Ernst Haeckel drawing from 1904. Watch the Cool Hunting video about how she got her inspiration. ——————————- On Saturday I … Read More

Bread Exchange for Mother’s day


About half a year ago a lady wrote to me asking to trade a bread. She offered me to make a wish from Amsterdam. She was going there with her boyfriend and offered to pick something out for me.

Need some help in Sweden!


The last month we translated my Bread Exchange book into Swedish. Most recipes translated easy into swedish, especially since the Swedish food stores today are way broader sorted than 10 years ago. However I am having some concerns about one soup recipe which includes “buttermilk”. In Germany we have buttermilk but in Sweden we do not. We have a huge … Read More
