I get a lot of emails asking me whether I do cookery classes. Now I can finally announce that I’ll be hosting a private class for a select few on the official launch day of The Little Swedish Kitchen (Thursday 26 July 2018).
So, I’m giving you and a friend the chance to join me at the Khoollect studio, London to cook a couple of recipes from the new book. You and your friend will also receive a fantastic gift bag each, containing some of my favourite Swedish (or related) products.
All you have to do is:
2. Tell me what your favourite Swedish dish is below (please make sure to leave a valid email so I can contact you).
The goodie bag will contain the following (or similar) items:
Swedes love their waffles and this heart shaped waffle machine in particular. When I started developing recipes for the cookbook, I certainly had my fair share of waffles and the machine pictured made it so much simpler to whip them up.
I knew that I would feel at home in Sweden when I discovered that every home has a dedicated butterknife (my motto is ‘butter makes everything better’). Iris Hantverk crafts beautiful, but also very useful, homeware products (watch this video to find out more).
Tales chocolate is a handcrafted Swedish chocolate brand which creates organic, vegan and fair traded chocolate with a story and the goal to tell the tale of various locations by taste experience. With their first chocolate bar they wanted to capture the spirit of ‘Gamla stan’ the old part of Stockholm city.
Trust the Swedes to come up with an innovative, stylish, environmently friendly and ethically-sourced cleaning product. This product is based on biotech and uses the right kind of microbes (think ‘good bacteria’) to clean your home. A couple of drops of the stuff in regular water and you can spritz away the dirt. Definitely the future of cleaning!
French linen might be more famous, but this Swedish linen company can certainly compete. The Växbo lin factory is tucked in the woods in the North of Sweden (how Swedish!) and has been crafting beautiful linen products for decades. This dishcloth is not only beautiful, but withstands wiping, wringing and washing.
6. A packet of Hodmedods whole yellow British peas
You may wonder what a packet of yellow peas is doing in a gift bag. Whole yellow peas (before they are split) are very common in Sweden but in the UK they are a rarity. One of my favourite recipes in The Little Swedish Kitchen uses them. Hodmedods work with some great UK farmers to grow yellow peas plus some other fantastic pulses.
Drop Coffee was one of my first hangouts when I moved to Stockholm and I quickly became hooked on their coffee. They have a somewhat international reputation when it comes to selecting beans and roasting them. Just ask any barista!
With all these goodies you’ll need a stylish tote to put them all in.
Last but not least….
