Apple Galette

On the weekends we eat galette! When I was younger I used to make galettes with my father on Sundays. Sometimes they were savoury filled with pears and goat cheese, other times with something more simple, apples and cinnamon or a blackberry filling. The success for a good galette, however, is to use French butter in the rough puff crust - a crucial ingredient according to my father, as it gives the crust an extra flaky texture and…

September, grilled peaches & burrata

September and October, my two favourite months. The months of in-between. Warm, yet on the edge of being chilly. Sunny, yet with sprinkles of rain. Light, yet dark. Hopeful, yet melancholic. A new start, yet coming to an end. So we fill it with rich stews and grilled peaches; red wine and light beers; walks in the sun and books in front of the fire; thick sweaters and bare-legged - all the in-betweens. The other day, when both…

En fullspäckad vecka

Hej måndag och ny vecka! Nu hoppas jag innerligt på en lite härligare vecka med nya fräschare tag väntar än den förra. Jag har inte vågat flytta varken spyhink (dock tom och ej använd bör kanske tilläggas, haha!) eller alvedon från sovrummet, i ren vidskeplighet. Känns det inte som att det smäller till PRECIS när man just burit tillbaka febertermometern och rensat bort alla andra tecken på sjukdomar? Inte den här gången säger jag och låter det nog…

Fika, chocolate cake, cream & cherries 

Midsummer weekend with friends, new and old, lots of food, laughter, drinks and swims. We started the Friday with an exciting (but secret for now!) happening. We then had some bubbles by the sea and walked back home with the picked wildflowers. Dinner, open fire and friends until the small hours. And what an exciting and beautiful weekend it was. So much so, that when Sunday came I was absolutely exhausted! So after a long walk in the…

Wild Mountain Thyme

  On Monday, after some coffee, we packed our bags and headed to Perthshire for a little retreat, staying in a converted horsebox (japp ett hästsläp!) situated in the forest. We spent our days walking, sitting by the fire and eating lots of nice locally sourced food. Even though this past year has been rather lonely in terms of not being able to see friends and family, it was so beautiful and needed to be enriched by nature.…

Elderflower spritz & spring afternoons

On days like these when skies are blue and the fields are turning green, it's hard to even imagine that it was snowing last Sunday! The rhubarb is starting to emerge from the soil and our apple trees are slowly opening up their blooms. Right now I am drinking an elderflower spritz - a drink that transports me right back to warm nights standing in a crowded street in the little Italian town Taggia just close to where…

Weekend lunch & table decoration

  After a day in the garden yesterday, potting up my dahlias for the summer we had some friends over for a low-key Easter lunch. The one thing I've been craving for a week now has been an old-school French onion soup with some Comté crackers, so I just had to make it to ease my home-sickness and longing for my family on the French Rivera. My good friend Kirsty is a fantastic artist and shares the same…

EASTER PAVLOVA WITH RHUBARB, GINGER, PASSIONFRUIT & ROSEMARY

  After a glimpse of spring here in Scotland, we had the classic March showers which lasted a bit too long for my liking. But as a result, the grass is greener and the Japanese cherry blossom trees are slowly starting to bloom. And with the weather turning amazing again, spring in the air and Easter just around the corner, I couldn't resist and decided to make the cake I have been longing to make on this sunny…

Tarte au citron & coffee with friends

A welcome ray of sunshine, this delicious, velvet smooth tarte au citron is my go-to recipe for a spontaneous fika. It was made famous by the late Roux brothers, and has been a staple pice in french cuisine ever since it appeared on the menu at Le Gavroche in 1967. From that day onwards, chefs across France have made their own individual variations of this classic in an attempt to personalise it. My father was one of them!…

Samma gamla köksbord, fast i ny tappning.

Här hemma avlöser de små pysselprojekten varandra just nu och samtidigt håller vi sportlov, jag och barnen. Ni förstår kanske kaoset allt det innebär? 😅 Men jag skall försöka stå ut med stöket och istället tänkte jag visa er vårt köksbord som vi bytte benen på för några veckor sedan. Bordet är ursprungligen ett svart BJURSTA från Ikea. Det köpte vi när vi flyttade in i huset för sisådär 11 år sedan. Numer finns det inte så mycket…
