Hiver Nomade


I just returned home after the most relaxing Easter holiday I ever experienced. Together with 5 friends I spend it in Wallis, a wine region in the French speaking parts of Switzerland. 11 hours of sleep. Late night cooking. Slow roasted easter lamb. Never ending breakfasts. Spa warm up on a rainy easter saturday. A whole day of sun while … Read More

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

More Matcha Bread is coming up tomorrow


It is fun to see all the unexpected paths that this project brings me on. Tomorrow I have a really interesting trade. Bread for a voice lesson. I am really excited about this since I have not really been singing since I moved to Berlin 14 years ago (apart from some charity choir tours at retirement homes in the holiday … Read More

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

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

Almost Home


After living abroad 15 out of my 33 years I tend to grab for every little crumble of Sweden that falls on my path. From a Swedish expat perspective this week has been a very successful week. I have been tasting the highs and the lows of the Swedish culinary culture. I started off by hanging out in the Småland … Read More

Last Minute trip to Stockholm

Last July I visited Sthlm and wrote a little love blog post about a city totally positive and in good mood due to the summer weather. The warm season had returned after 3 cold summers. Swedes live for summer so to get a bad one is like not getting a dose of your life saving medicine. Things can easily feel pretty heavy in the … Read More
