Ok kids during winter time you have to eat all the amaze seasonal fruit all of my favs are amazing and also pretty cheap right now orange dates mandarines and omg KAKI (persimon, sharon, Japanese kaki or whatever you wanna call them is case you wondered “Diospyros” is the name of the tree) just make sure that you buy the sort of kaki (there are two) that can be eaten when its not quite ripe (often the smaller round ones) or that you buy the other sort and wait for them to get soft and the fruit flesh jelly because otherwise the tannic acid will turn your mouth inside out but anyways please buy them HAPPINESS LIVE IN THEM PROMISE!!

I really love all the autumn dishes  but then again I really like heavy food kale and roots than been simmering in cream for forever so this sweet potatoe gratin we did was right down my alley together with a full-bodied red wine this is how you do it:

SWEETIE GRATIN

4 port

700 g sweet potatoe

2 cloves of garlic

0.5 red chili

2,5 dl heavy cream

To much of your favorite cheese (I like goat cheese, gorgonzola, feta, halloumi, parmesan, västerbotten ok so like all cheeses is najs)

Sage or other fresh or dried herbs you like

Peel and slice the potatoes. Peel and chop onions and chili (but remove the seeds or you will die). Mix garlic chili and cream. Add the potatoes, sage, salt and pepper. Sprinkle with loads of cheese like until you can barely see the sweeties. Bake in 200c until the gratin has a nice color and the potatoes are soft (around 30min +)

Another nice way to update potatoes is to just slice them in half and mix with some butter smoked olive oil sea salt and chili flakes simple as that!!

Also you should always past-a-time-away!! This Kaleonara (carbonara but without meat with kale you get it?!) is one of my all time favorite fall dishes ofc you can make itwith just one sort of kale or green kale instead but i like the kombo of the more buttery black kale and the crunchy brussels anyways make it like tonight please!!

KALEONARA

4 port

1 bag of brussels

1 bag of black kale

1 yellow onion

1 clove of garlic

Butter

2.5 dl of heavy cream, smetana, sour cream or whatever you prefer

2 dl mushrooms (I love chanterelles but all is fine)

1 handful of roasted nuts like hazels walnuts or almond

As much aged cheese you want I prefer Västerbotten but parmesan pecorino or chevre is najs cheeses for this occasion too

Pasta (for this i like spaghetti)

Slice the kale. Chopp the onion and fry them in butter. Add mushrooms and then the kale. Pour over the cream and let it simmer until the kale has softened but is still cheavy. Boil the pasta al dente in fuck loads of sea salty water. Pour the pasta into the kale cream and top with grated cheese crunchy hazels and ground black pepper important also you can drizzle it with some truffle oil if you feel fancy as fuck!!

I love markets especially when all the harvest festivals are happening just stroll around and buy local stuff you dont really need but makes you very very happy just because nature are so present even if its man made kind of feels exotic these days!!

Skärmavbild 2018-10-01 kl. 17.19.47

Contrast is everything so to really enjoy being at home we try to always have some fancy plans like going to our favorite restaurant, make a trip or eat a crazy brunch last time we went to Miss Voon Uppsala located on the top floor and had drinks and loads of small asian dishes like this lobster tacos while enjoying the view of Uppsala by night!!

Skärmavbild 2018-08-09 kl. 15.25.16

So, spending this fall in Uppsala and would love to share some of my best places in exchange for your favorite eat and drinks fair right?!

To start with I always have buttery shrimp croissants with creamy egg and homemade majo with a glass of bubbles if I feel like it at Guntherska. Its a little bit pricy but so happy that I will start working just across the river!!

Skärmavbild 2018-08-09 kl. 15.25.31

Skärmavbild 2018-08-24 kl. 15.09.20

Every weekend theres a little farmers market at Fyristorg where you can buy local products like eggs, green, bread, sweets, jam, lemonade and flowers. Be there early if you want the good stuff!!

Skärmavbild 2018-09-17 kl. 18.36.45

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!!

Skärmavbild 2018-08-09 kl. 15.25.45

Uppsala also have a good grocery called Nehlins who specialize in greens and veggies. they also have a big selection of cheeses and basically those two things are all I need!!

Skärmavbild 2018-09-10 kl. 18.51.10

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!!

Skärmavbild 2018-08-24 kl. 15.04.48

Always try to take a walk in Botaniska Garden to see what the greens and flowers been up to. These grapes to will be ready in a prosecco!!

Skärmavbild 2018-08-09 kl. 15.26.01

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.
