dark chocolate cremeux and blackberry tarts

Today I want to share a recipe for a blackberry and chocolate dessert I’m quite obsessed about. It is made from a classic tart crust with a rye twist, filled with a creamy dark chocolate crème, and topped with juicy blackberries from our garden. The chocolate crème’s fancy French name is cremeux, but don’t be scared; It’s actually really easy to make – especially if you have a cooking thermometer at hand. But before we jump to the recipe, I…

Easy dinner - zucchini-5067-4

This is what I actually cook for my family at home. It’s a simple and seasonal – and most importantly – easy dinner. I like to think of this dish as real food for real people. Because, let’s be frank; when the fantasy about spending hours cooking 3-course meals for your family gets undermined by jobs, kids, or both, this is what I actually cook. It’s a comforting and nourishing dish that doesn’t require a larger arsenal of pots and…

Koldskål

This is my recipe for the most delicious Danish Summer dessert, Koldskål w. Sweet Biscuits, made from eggs, lemon and buttermilk. Get the recipe below! My kitchen is currently filled with the delicate scent of peonies, and as a breeze stirs the blooming fruit trees of the garden an ephemeral odour of freshly mowed grass and the perfume of light yellow roses sweeps though the open patio door. Yes, it must be Summer. So, today I present to you my…

Dinner in our garden-3095

(Dansk oversættelse nedenfor) For a moment the Spring Sun peeked out from its cloudy hide and we decided to have the first out-door-dinner in our new garden, beneath one of the apple trees. We don’t have a garden table yet, so we pulled out this old and small table from the basement and I managed to fit all of our plates, glasses, cutlery, flowers, and candle sticks onto it… you know me, I like my tables dressed up. The days…
