LAMB MOUSSAKA | Served with a green sallad, cherry tomatoes and fresh honey yoghurt

So once again, I have a brand new bag. I’ve been trying another Matkasse, this time we get the goods from Middagsfrid. http://www.middagsfrid.se Currently you can even get a 300kr discount on your first Matkasse. Introduction offer: 300kr discount But this is not just another Matkasse. I can easily say this is by far the best quality I’ve had out of all Matkasse services that I tried so far. But then of course, this is reflected in the bill. 895kr for 5 dinners serving a family of 4, i.e. 45kr per serving. Not realy a budget alternative, but it comes … Continue reading LAMB MOUSSAKA | Served with a green sallad, cherry tomatoes and fresh honey yoghurt

FLYING ASPARAGUS | A slightly more grownup Jacob

Flying Jacob (Swedish: Flygande Jacob) is a Swedish casserole based on chicken with bananas, peanuts and bacon, covered with whipped cream laced with hot sauce and cooked in the oven. In checking the supplies I realised there were no bananas… No bananas? NO BANANAS?!? So asparagus it was, and a bloody fantastic concoction it is, if I may say so. And as per usual in preparing Flying Jacob, never go lightly with the hot sauce. Continue reading FLYING ASPARAGUS | A slightly more grownup Jacob

BIRCH OIL | Straight out of Dalarna

Ah! Now that’s fresh mountain-grown birch oil from the hills of Dalarna. Finally, this is a product I’ve been looking for… …well no, but I love it. We pick the leaves from the birch tree and extract the etherial oils that provide a very aromatic flavor of birch. Birch oil is then mixed with a cold-pressed organic canola oil and bottled. Örtagård Öst It tastes spectacular mixed in butter, sprinkled on sallad or pasta, but make sure to apply it just before serving as the etherial birch oil is rather volatile and will disappear quickly if heated. Some people have … Continue reading BIRCH OIL | Straight out of Dalarna

Back to Eden: Hilary Tries Vegan

Originally posted on The Nomad Grad:
Okay, so here’s the deal. I am a meat lover. If I had a dating profile it would read something like, “Single white female. Fond of fried foods, steaks, and lattes.” My friends do not recognize me without a cup of coffee in my hand and do not attempt conversation until I’ve downed some caffeine. Well, you get the picture. But if there’s one thing I’ve learned thus far in my travels, it’s that you have to be ready for anything. The gypsy lifestyle does not cater to preferences or comfort. You learn to… Continue reading Back to Eden: Hilary Tries Vegan
