Easy dinner | Zucchini, Mint & Preserved Lemon

August 23, 2017

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…

No-Knead Pizza with Ricotta, Asparagus & Wild Garlic

May 21, 2017

(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…

Jerusalem Artichoke Soup with Lump Fish Roe

April 3, 2017

This is the final recipe of the menu I created for Mikkel’s 30th birthday and the final recipe I’ll share from our apartment in Copenhagen. Next weekend we will be residing in our new house in Svendborg (southern part of Denmark) with a view to the sound and a short walk to the forest. As we enter what feels like a new chapter in our lives, another closes. A chapter that tells a story of late night dinners with fellow…

Cavolo Nero & Preserved Lemon Linguine

January 15, 2017

Hello 2017! Mikkel and August are napping in our bedroom leaving me with a window of one, maybe two hours if I’m lucky, to finish this first post of the new year. Maybe I even get to sit down with a cup of mint tea and flip through the Kinfolk issue I bought before Christmas; it has been sitting on our shelf, unopened, ever since. Lately, life has just been a bit more chaotic than usual. I’m not going to…

Jerusalem Artichokes

October 12, 2016

Currently what inspires me is seasonal vegetables cooked to their maximum potential, served on ceramics shaped by the hands of local artist, Magdalena Kaluzna. The art of cooking a simple seasonal meal from super accessible veggies jazzed up with spices from our pantry is an art I want to exercise more in our quotidian routines. As our everyday storm is getting closer, the waves get so high I want to make room for what really matters to us; to cook…

Pea, Mint & Coconut Soup

June 12, 2016

Our last recipe included fresh strawberries (and a chocolate cake!). With today’s recipe we’re continuing down the fresh-Summer-produce-road; a creamy Pea, Mint & Coconut Soup. The first times I made pea soup it turned out all yellow and sad. Which made me sad, too. In my head, the soup was supposed to turn into a beautiful light green soup with a mild taste of peas. After a few more failures I googled like a mad woman and found that the…
