Amongst the building works, unpacking and constant hammering (ha!) we managed to shoot for my new cookbook, The Little Swedish Kitchen. Squeezing team Penguin Books, genius Frankie Unsworth and of course the brilliant David Loftus into our freshly painted studio kitchen was a bit more hectic than we’d planned but we did it! We even had the help of chief recipe tester, Isla Unsworth, who always gives a magic touch with her paws.
It was so nice to finally be shooting in our new Khoollect kitchen (designed by Devol kitchens) space. With only a few hiccups – we had a drain issue that resulted in work men and volcanic-like sounds – we managed to squeeze in 26 recipes to our jam-packed shoot days.
Linda Berlin selected a beautiful array of props that really brought my vision for my Swedish kitchen to life. We managed to include some of my original pieces that featured in My Little Paris Kitchen too.
Some highlights of the day were a succulent beef stew and delicious vegan Swedish meatballs – I can’t wait for you to try the recipes!
Stay tuned for more cookbook and studio updates. In the meantime, follow along via my Instagram.
