Recipe: White Chocolate and Berry Coconut Mountains

Sometimes a recipe disaster can bring something even more delicious. Traditionally these mountains are packed with just coconut, but after burning half my coconut while toasting, I decided to improvise with sesame seeds and ground almonds. The result adds the perfect nuttiness and is a great balance to the tart berries on top.

It’s been just over a week since I landed in Sydney, and I must admit, I really am loving all the sunny weather – it’s such a welcome change from the long dark days of late autumn in Sweden. Thanks so much to everyone who came along to my book signing at Books [...]

Recipe: Swedish Pancakes

Ubiquitous in Sweden, pancakes come in many different forms, thicknesses and sizes. In essence, you just need some flour, eggs, milk, a good pinch of salt and a generous amount of butter to fry them in. These are between American pancakes and French crêpes in size, but with [...]

Recipe: Falafels Swedish-Style with Red Cabbage and Dill

I found out there’s a bit of a falafel restaurant scene in Malmö, the biggest southern city in Sweden. It’s hardly a surprise when you think about it, given the deep national love for meatballs (as well as their beany counterparts). You could fry these as you would [...]

Recipe: Red Caviar Sandwich Cakes

Inspired by classic Swedish savouries such as smörgåstårta (a sandwich ‘cake’, with bread for the layers), this is a total, utter mash-up, but absolutely delicious. To achieve the ‘red velvet’ look in the picture, you’ll need my homemade beetroot flatbreads; otherwise use a [...]

WIN a SMEG Fridge/Freezer

I’ve always been a big fan of Smeg appliances. There’s something mesmerising about their 1950’s design and rainbow colour palette (as opposed to bog-standard white). For years I’ve wanted to complete my kitchen look with a Smeg fridge/freezer, but [...]
