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…

Wild Garlic Pesto

April 20, 2017

(Danish translation below) I nest wherever I go. Whether abroad or at home. To me it’s about being present and simply live whether we’re wandering the dusty pink streets of Marrakesh, the ancient corridors of Kyoto, or as is this case, unpacking boxes and building a new home in the seaport of Svendborg in the Southern part of Denmark. We actually did it. We sold our Copenhagen apartment to build our dream life close to the sound and the forest. The…

Cabbage & Pea Salad

July 1, 2016

Nut & Seed Bread

March 6, 2016

A comforting smell of roasted nuts and notes of fennel oozes from our oven to our kitchen and then our living room where Mikkel and August is playing. It may not be the smell you would expect if I told you I was baking a bread. But this not a classic bread either. It’s a bread made from nuts, seeds, and oats; a bread bursting with vitamins and fibres. And the best part of if all; it requires neither kneading…

Apple Butter

November 1, 2015

So far Camilla’s pregnancy has been really easy. Even though she’s due next Sunday she’s still running those stairs like she did 9 months ago. She has hardly had any weird eating habits, except for her crush on apples these days. Luckily, the stores are packed with the most delicious and crispy Autumn apples. A few weeks ago she visited her parents and she brought home a big bag of apples freshly picked from her parents apple tree. She entered…
