Even though I have been in Germany since the year 2000 I still have not become fully a friend of the traditional German kitchen.  Now Berlin in just Berlin and not really Germany. And the food here is amazing. Great markets, big breakfasts, amazing dinners from all corners of the world. And all is affordable. I can not think of … Read More

my dream Kitchen

There are many pretty things in Paris. The nicest of them all might be my favourite Kitchen in Marais. It is not big. There is no window at the sink. It is just very alive.

I brought some fresh berries to make a dessert drink, ready to drink for Christmas. I was thinking Limoncello. But with Lingon. A bad joke would be Lingoncello. That … Read More

September at Skafferiet

Next door to Höje Bakery there is a small old store, Lanthandel, selling only ecological food. A lot of it is produced in Värmland. It is inspiring and I am trying to stick to what they, and the forest, have to offer. It is not very hard to stick to it actually. Even though I do not like ice cream … Read More

Long live Levain!

Yesterday we started the Levain project.  We set the dough around lunch time. This morning Manfred and I met up early. At 2.30 (AM!!!) it was time to start. We added more flour and water and then the dough had to go back to its resting position. After about 1-2 hours we added the rest ingredients. I added some extra … Read More
