Article in SvD – behind the scenes

Screen shot from the online version of SvD Min Helg. copyright SvD

A few weeks ago I was asked together with Lena and Anne to create a menu for International Women’s Day. Our recipes were published yesterday in the national newspaper SvD (Min Helg) and can also be seen online at Tasteline together with photos and a interview. The pdf-version of Min Helg can be downloaded here. Unfortunately it’s only in Swedish.

The dishes we created for the menu are the following:
*Pomegranade martini with hazelnut and olive cantucci.
*Serrano rolls with lemon and pepper filling sprinkled with fried capers (one of the dishes we won with at the Swedish home chef of the year competition).
*Beef marinated in balsamic vinegar served with a blue cheese, apple, aragula, walnut and avocado salad.
*Rasperry Eton Mess (raspberries marinated in rhubarb syrup, whipped cream, vanilla ice cream and meringues).

After creating and discussing recipes with Anne and Lena we were invited to the SvD/Tasteline kitchen to cook the food so they could take photos of us while we were cooking and of course the food. We had a great time together and it was fun to watch the photographer in action. Below you can see some of the photos I took when we were finished with the food. And of course no weird sprays or chemicals were added to make the food look better on the photos. The photos taken by the photographer that were published can be seen at Tasteline and in SvD Min Helg.

Main course, beef and salad. And it’s not red wine in the glass but glögg (sweet mulled wine)!!

    Fantastic. Really need to keep in mind some of those photography tips (brushing oil, etc) to help myself improve.
