While the sun is still shining and the summer doesn’t seem too long gone, I thought I’d tell you about my day at Rockaway Beach. Getting there was easy. I got on the ferry from Wall Street (Pier 11), and the ferry ride only took around and hour and felt even shorter, because of the nice views along the way.
Kakigori, Japanese shaved ice, is one of the most refreshing treats you can get yourself in the summer. The “flakes” are much lighter than the shaved ice in Denmark, almost like a cup full of snow, and the fluffy texture makes it almost impossible to eat without a spoon.
If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you probably remember my friend Tina in NYC. She has always been a big foodie and a very talented hobby chef, so when she told me that she had started her own Nordic crisps brand, Hungry Bird Eats, I was more excited than I was surprised.
Los Angeles is a great place for shopping, but because the city is so spread out, you need to know where you’re going, as there’s often a long drive between the different shopping areas.
Here’s a recipe from my old blog, from when I still enjoyed cooking and baking. These days I find it difficult to find the time and passion for kitchen experiments, but lemon curd is an exception. It’s so easy and quick to make, and it tastes amazing on toast and anything freshly baked. You can also use it as frosting on cakes, pastry filling and in desserts. It will last 3-4 days in the fridge.
Back in 2003 I visited Japan for the first time. I was there with Rikke, and in less than one week we managed to party hard in Tokyo, sleep through an earthquake and fly off to Sapporo to meet my friend Mari before heading back to Denmark again. This was my first hectic introduction to Japan, and it was love at first sight.
In a dynamic city like Tokyo, things change quickly, and what’s popular today is often forgotten tomorrow. Calbee is one of the exceptions, which has managed to stay relevant for decades, and the brand’s potato-based snacks never seem to go out of style.
When I was in Bali earlier this year, one of the things I was really looking forward to, was the food. Roasted suckling pig, pork ribs and grilled chicken were just some of the dishes I couldn’t wait to sink my teeth into.
