Food memories from 2008, Part I


Johan, Camilla and I made lots of food for Camilla's husband's birthday on a cold day in January.


Breakfast at a "French" café in Gothenburg.


Shrimps and cheese.


My favourite pizza in my old neighbourhood.


The first time I visited a legendary restaurant called Sjömagasinet in Gothenburg, they used to have amazing lunches.


While studying this was the sushi I had at least a couple of times a week.


Bread from a French bakery in my old neighbourhood, their bread was so crazy delicious.


On Johan's 25th birthday I surprised him with champagne for breakfast. I also made him a ciabatta with scrambled eggs, asparagus, parmesan cheese and truffle oil.


Lunch at an Austrian restaurant in Gothenburg.


In April it was time for the first pizza outdoors. This is a kebab pizza, the most sold pizza in Sweden. Also in Sweden pizza is always served with a pizza salad which is cabbage with oil, sugar, vinegar, oregano, salt and pepper.


Pizza at home with my mum as a visitor. This used to be my favourite low budget wine. A low budget wine in Sweden costs almost €7 if you want it in a bottle...


Pancakes outdoors.


Summer came and I had dinner outdoors on the grass.


And in the garden where I used to live. I love love love that salsa made of mango, tomato, coriander (cilantro in American English), lime, onion and chili.


Sushi!


Barbeque in my parents' summer house.


Picnic with Johan, Camilla & Morran on that Summer's hottest evening.

A tribute to me




Charlyn has sent me the loveliest gifts! I laughed out loud when I saw her miniversions of the naked buttcrack characters. Tusen tack Charlyn <3

Food memories from 2007


Seafood by the river in Gothenburg, oh how I miss good seafood...


First time visit at this café, they played opera really loud and it was heaven.


Easter dinner at my parents.


Gothenburg café breakfast.




Greece, haven't been there since then. I'm longing back to the Mediterranean Sea.


This used to be my favourite back in the days in my neighbourhood in Gothenburg, it's a mix of vietnamese summer rolls, hummus, tzatziki and other good things.


Breakfast in Småland.


Johan baked a pizza for us and a friend and it caused a fight with our neighbour who always begged for food.


Breakfast with Camilla.


A typical we're-out-of-money-homemade-potatoes-in-the-oven-dish.


The first time I picked mushrooms, yum!


Breakfast at home.


Johan makes the best pasta carbonara I've ever had.


Pizza in Berlin.


Lunch at a fancy restaurant in Gothenburg which I went to sometimes when I was tired of being a student.


Dinner with Camilla and Johan.


A crumpet for breakfast, with arctic bramble jam.

And a food memory from 2005:
Once upon a time I used to cook most of what I ate. Then one day I was visiting Johan (we were just friends at that time), I asked if we were going to cook something and he gave me a book and asked me to lie down on his bed to read. So I did while listening to him cooking and thought This is how I want to live.

More food memories posts coming soon.
Did you eat anything particularly good this weekend? I had a delicious halloumi snack for dinner on Saturday.

Snippets from my new studio






A river called Spree








This is the first time I live without the sea as my nextdoor neighbour. I'm glad Spree is here, being near water is very important to me.
