Uppsala has some nice burgers places with really good vegan options for us that prefer veggies for example Bastards burgers have insane vegan burgers and Guntherska knows their fries important crisp!!

As you might have noticed I love pizza like I was carrying a pizza baby and my greatest sorrow is that i can not find any decent pizza in Uppsala so if you know were I should go raise your hand and I will be forever pregnant!! This one is a black caviar and seafood pizza with mozzarella from Luthagens kök but i was not 100% happy with the seafood, crust or amount of cheese that one had to much cheese on it sad no one like ever!!

This is mys life saver, always. Yukikos sushi in Eriksberg serves the best sushi ever. Why I think its so damn good I dont really know but its something with the simplicity, the smooth salmon the always so perfect avocado and the giant makis that makes this sushi to an addiction. Make sure to order the tuna/ majo maki and the fried tofu called inari!!

Skärmavbild 2018-08-09 kl. 15.26.50

I do not eat out much when in Uppsala so I would really need some dinner tips!! However, if having a girl night out we often go to Plock to eat tapas and have som drinks but basically the real reason is because they have amaze fries!!

PLEASE SHARE YOURE UPPSALA SECRETS!!

 HOW TO GET AROUND

Basics first when in Lisbon you should just walk walk and walk there is so many beautiful walls wine bars and cafes. But there is a reason for Lissabon being called little San Francisco so if to hot or to hilly you should also catch one of the trams especially line 28 is a experience in it self because of the deep slopes and really narrow beautiful streets!!

Skärmavbild 2018-08-27 kl. 13.52.28

NATIONAL SPECIALITY BACALAO

Portugals most famous local food is the white fish called Bacalao. It is served in all kind of forms for example as a very taste fried appetizer that I really recommend as a afternoon by the ocean or the rocks of Cascais beer snack!!

Skärmavbild 2018-08-27 kl. 13.52.53

CAN FOOD AT LOJAS DAS CONSERVAS 

Lisbon is the jedi of cans basically you can buy all the seafood you can imagine as long as you buy it in a can. They even have their own restaurant in direct connection to there store only offering canned goods ofc!!

EATING AND DRINKING THE STREETS

There are a lot of good restaurant and bars in Lissabon. However most night time drinking is happening on the streets of Bairro Alto. Except that it is real cheap (like real real cheap in a not good for you kind of a way) it is also a nice way of taking part in the public life. Buy a way to big way to cheap plastic glas with beer, mojito or sangria and some local snacks to enjoy on a doorstep or a stair. Me I always have fried squids with lemon and aioli whenever snack attacking!!

NATAS AT PASTEIS THE BELEM 

Lisbons most famous cake is the Portuguese vanilla egg tartes called Natas. The best ones are found outside the city in Belem. Although quite a walk along the coast side and quite a queue to get in to the bakery these gorgeous little ladies are well worth the effort. Warm creamy and powdered with cinnamon and sugar new addiction hello (imported 2 packages to Sweden to be on the safe side!!)

TACOS AT PISTOLA Y CORAZON

Everything from the tacos to the drinks and interior at this place breaths of the streets. Our fav was the beer fried fish taco with mango and red cabbage and don´t forget the way to good tequila and mezcal drinks (try the one with green apple and cinnamon wow!!). This is coolest place in Lisbon atm so be there early or prepare to line up (they offer nachos and drinks for free while waiting tough important fact!!) PS. Watch out for the really hot salsas they will tell you they are hot and they mean it!! DS.

Love these green little rooms like a maze

risotto

You have to eat all the amaze summer veggies for example you can cook this Asparagus risotto with basil oil loaded with spring like best dish ever so luxurious so simple (actually the secret is just to STIR !!) and you can do it with basically with anything just buy a good or at least pretty good olive oil because it makes all the difference promise this is what you need for 4 portions risotto: 

2 finely chopped shallots

1 dl olive oil

3 dl Carnaroli rice or Arborio rice

2 dl dry white wine

1 l hot chicken broth

2 dl grated parmesan

Salt + freshly ground black pepper

250 g of green asparagus

This is what you need for the Basil oil:

1 pot of basil

1.5 dl olive oil

1 garlic

Salt + freshly ground black pepper

Mix all the ingredients for the basil oil. Heat the broth in a saucepan. Chop the onion and fry thoroughly with olive oil on low heat without the onion taking color (choose a thick-bottomed pan tip!!). Raise the heat and add the rice. Mix and simmer for a few minutes. Pour on the wine and let it boil until the wine has evaporated. STIR ALL THE TIME NOTE!! Add the hot broth as the rice sucks the broth. Together it takes about 18-20 minutes – The risotto should be loose with a little kernel in the rice. Break the asparagus into smaller pieces and let it boil with the rest the last 3-4 minutes. Remove the saucepan from the heat, add the parmesan and 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Taste with salt and pepper (fresh pepper makes all the difference of the earth!!).  Pour over the basil oil and serve right away!!

Pancake!! After living in San Francisco we have decided that American pancakes have nothing on a buttery thin Swedish one this one I did with Oatlys chocolate milk fried in browned butter and served with a mix of all the summer berries and both whipped cream and pecan caramel ice cream because the combo reminds me of my childhood and still feel so unreasonably to muchy!!

Got so much to thank Elsa Beskow for so many beautiful summer memories with my grand mother so much inspiration for aesthetics and color and basically my choice  of education THANK YOU!!

Im actually not a fan of salads but when its this crazy hot and when you put loads of good stuff together it´s OK this is salad from the garden burrata could die for burrata dark cherries olives leftovers of Andreas sourdough that makes the best crunch in the world when fried in loads of chili garlic and olive oil roasted almonds and a dressing of saffron browned butter and rosé pepper!! Mix veggies and fruits more in food kids it makes everything s much more fun to eat!!

Skärmavbild 2018-07-03 kl. 22.11.37

Usually Im not a fan of either eating (unless its semla or tiramisu)  or making (unless its pralines) dessert but since we had so beautiful berries I made a rhubarb pannacotta with vanilla cardamon that i topped with a crumble of burnt white chocolate and cherries!! Adding carmon to rhubarb makes its so much more exciting and the creamy dessert really needs the crunchiness from the white chocolate crumble!! Always think about contrast in flavor and texture!!

Rhubarb pannacotta with white chocolate and cardamon (6 port):

5 dl cream

75g  white chocolate 

3 arks of gelatine

4 msk rhubarb lemonade 

1 msk of cardamon 

Cherries for garnish 

25 g white chocolate for crumble 

Soak the gelatine in cold water. bring cream to boil and add the chocolate. Add the gelatine, lemonade and cardamon. Pour into glasses and chill for several hours. 

Chop the rest of the chocolate in to smaller pieces and grill in the oven at 200c until it gets color. Chop again in to smaller pieces. Decorate the pannacotta with the brunt crumble and cherries right before serving!!
