If you’re new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting! Here comes the recipe I promised! It´s a really nice salad – slightly complicated to prepare – but well worth the effort. The balsamic fig dressing is just delicious and adds so much to this salad. Personally, I would [...]
This is quite possibly the best pizza I´ve ever tasted – and I lived in Italy! (Althoguh Italian pizzas are the best) – but this combination – the smoked salmon and the arugula is utterly delicious. It´s quite easy to make. The pizza dough recipe is mine …. yes I know it´s unbelivable but I´ve [...]
Steak salads are my absolute favorite. It´s really a no brainier – by mixing the two you combine healthy living food with the most guilt ridden one (I´m not talking junk food here). This one is a particular favorite. The pineapple-ginger dressing is to die for and the sunburst bourbon & brown sugar marinade is [...]
Well I thought is was about time that I posted a new recipe. This one should not fail you since it´s utterly delicious and really quite simple to make. I could say a lot about this dish – but I´ll spare you. All I can say is that I gladly vouch for it since I´ve eaten it a few times now and absolutely love it.
Our long awaited TV series GRILLAÐ – which basically means, “Barbequing” aired last night here in Iceland. At the same time we celebrated the publication of a book that carries the same name and features the recipes from the show – plus many more.
Until quite recently Icelanders always prepared their salted cod for eating by cooking it in water. Of late chefs in Iceland have been developing different methods, many of which have become very popular, since they have proved to draw out the flavor of the fish and have really turned this formerly quite humble food item into gourmet fare. Here is one method developed by one of Iceland´s best chef´s and one of our best friend Siggi, who runs a highly esteemed restaurant on the top floor of a high-rise in the Reykjavík area in Iceland.
The first time I tasted this dish was at the remote area of Snæfellsnes – Iceland. There is a glacier there – called Snæfellsjökull which is one of the most famous sites of Iceland, primarily due to the novel A Journey to the Center of the Earth (1864) by Jules Verne, in which the protagonists find the entrance to a passage leading to the center of the earth on Snæfellsjökull.
This salad is not really a salad – it´s more like heaven on a plate! It´s ridiculously good and quite easy to make (although I have no idea what most of these ingredients are – but then again – I´m not the chef here!). I have however tasted it and it is beyond words – so here is the recipe – I really hope you give it a try.
I always admire people who can look inside a seemingly empty fridge, pull out a few jars of this and that and within minutes they have made something amazing. It was pretty much like that on our first date.
Every once in a while I like to step out of my comfort zone. Not too much though but it is essential for my self growth I´d like to think. A few months ago my cooking skills were quite limited to say the least. I had mastered two recipes and baby food.
I sometimes have weird food-flashbacks. Like when you hear a certain song and instantly go back to the place it reminds you of. Well, my food-flashbacks are similar in a way. I look at a picture or in some cases just an ingredient and I´m transferred back to the day when I ate it. This happened to me this morning when I saw this picture and I believe that I just have to make it today!
So – understandably I´m not going to give you that recipe but when I was browsing through some of Volli´s recipe I found this one and almost kicked myself for not having thought of it yesterday. This soup is AMAZING and super-easy to make.
Growing up on a small island – far far away from so many things that I take for granted today – I never had the pleasure of tasting macaroni and cheese. For me it was just TV food – something magical that everybody ate on TV.
So… the thing about being married to a chef is that people expect you to be some sort of a culinary genius to. Well – I’m not. A few years ago I could hardly boil rice and one of the biggest embarrassments in my life is when I tried to channel my inner Nigella and cook some pork for my family.
This simple but spicy fish dish is sure to delight your sense of taste.
