Summer food for me is fresh stuff you wanna eat even though the sun is burning lots of green stuff that can be found in the garden and most important of all – really easy to make when you wanna spend time outdoors!!
This is and always have been one of my fav starters snacks or light lunches just fry a slice of bread (I prefer white bread for this) in butter and top with Skagen lemon and dill. If you wanna be fancy as fuck a spoon on roe is to die for!!
Grenens are like art right?!
Salads don´t have to be boring this one with noodles dressed in sesame dressing fried shrimps creamy egg smooth avocado peppery radishes spicy cilantro and popping giant roe has everything!!
Toast is my savior not only because Andreas makes lot of sourdough but also because you can toast basically everything this one is a classic one with beets and goat cheese but i also have a new fav kombo – kimchi and Västerbotten cheese!!
I do this all the time for whatever occasion just drizzle a burrata (best cheese in the world its a buffel mozzarella filled with a mixture of cheese and cream) but ordinary mozzarella is also OK drizzle with good olive oil (my favorite right now is Zetas smoked olive oil mixed with some fresh lemon juice) and sprinkle with sea salt. Ass some fresh herbs to make it look fussy I use my red basil a lot to impress but actually it cost me 15kr on ICA!!
Did you know that there are so many flowers that are eatable and perfect in salads, flavoring water, drinks or making cakes?!
You don´t have to make desserts for having friends over I usually make pralines instead if I have the time because I like it so much more and also Im usually pretty full after dinner but still want something sweet for coffee!!
If don´t have the time I just buy ice cream so that everyone can choose their own ice lolly (glassbåtar forever) and be happy everyone loves reliving the Glassbil promise!!
Short post about summer eats in Skåne before going on vacay first its the best ice cream ever from Lilla Glassfabriken Saffron (crazy good must try) and rom raisin because that an must always Im the oldest young woman in the world I know!!
Make picknick or bring easy peasy fast food and dine in Lund Botanical I made it kind of my own garden its so exciting to visit every week and see what has happened since last time hehe flower nerd yes!!
Usually bring falafel ofc because its like the national dish of Malmö although i prefer Kebab vagnens in Lund hehe with red cabbage slaw halloumi loads of mango sauce and extra garlic majo bring napkins tips!!
June been sooo hot alost like being in the mediterranean sea!!
More ice cream banana chocolate from Lommas glassfabrik afterwards we took summers first swim really tasted like frozen banana no artificial stuff there!!
Pretending to still be in Rome vine bars are the best (and bubbles)!! Lénoteca in Malmö is one oft the nicest vine bars I know remember to order the plum olives they are to die for and sea salt crisps always crisps when bubbeling!!
When I don´t know what to do I just walk along all the small streets of Lund and dream about where I would live and which color my hollyhocks would have!!
And they say that in Italy they eat a lot of Napoli style pizza bianca just tryin to stay real hehe!! If you haven´t visited La Cucina in Lund you have to ask for their Marinara with giant moules scampi tuna mozzarella and parsley but make sure to order its as a white pizza without tomato sauce its makes all the difference promise!!
Midsummer coming up at this is some tips on what you could eat also you can drink this rhubarb bellini just mix rhubarb lemonade and sparkling wine and garnish with rhubarb strawberries or whatever!!
World simplest appetizer just boil or fry asparagus topp with burrata or mozzarella and drizzle smoked olive oil and sea salt summer on a plate!!
