Bread Exchange goes Matcha

photo 2-2

I really like coffee. But I have reached a point where I have to admit that I can not really call my coffee drinking a procedure of enjoyment anymore. It is rather a simple habit. I am a fairly average Swedish coffee drinker. Which means I drink up to 5 cups of coffee a day. Preferably not the light American … Read More

We often read about the risk for foreign journalists in Afghanistan. This march the one of the most appreciated Swedish world correspondents were executed on an open street. But we should not forget the risk for Afghan journalists and photographers. Photography was completely forbidden by the Talibans. Imagine no everyday images to have being taken between 1996 and 2001. When … Read More

Bread Exchange today


The other week I ordered a whole box of flour from Kunstmühle in München. It is one of the oldest German mills, located behind the Hofbräuhaus. It is one of the best places I know to get high quality flour and luckily they also ship to berlin. For me it makes sense since I order like 30-40 kg at the … Read More

Bread Exchange x Design Hotels


  It is not the first time that I am trading Bread with Design Hotels (Hall 9, Stand 312). Their former director of consumer marketing was bartering with me already 2011, long before any other company approached me. This time I was not baking for the Design Hotels team, but for their guests. It was interesting to discuss my concept … Read More

Småland Tips, anyone


I am heading to Småland in about a month and I would really like to get my hands on 2 horses for a day. Ether on the coast or even at Öland. It can be Icelandic horses or some other friendly kind of horse which is smart and not lazy. Our summerhouse is in Timmernabben so anywhere in the region … Read More
