This Saturday we spent with other food and wine loving friends. We were chefs, food bloggers, crasy foodies, food stylists, photographers, authors, sommeliers, youtubers, (and others), who met up to fill a whole day with just food, wine and nerdy things that has to do with just those two things. We learned how to “style” food for pictures, cook absurdly nice desserts (and learning all the tricks to make it look advanced when its not), tried some extremely nice cavas and cooked more strange food. All this thanks to my friends who run the food blogg “glimten i grytan”. Me and Karin did a Cava TV episode about cava and swedish Semlor a while back). Here below you can see how the day developed in pictures.
Every one went abit “bananas” since we all got 20% off on everything. And “foodies” in a specialiced “kitchen appliance store”… well you can imagine.
Andréas and Ulrik were happy with their findings. Andréas boutgh a copper pot among other things…
Food styling with Liselotte Forslin and Ulrika Ekblom. Next time we write a book we will do it together with them. It will ba a “tapas and Cava” book. Andréas will do the reciep, I will write and they will do the rest. 🙂
Johan Hedberg aka “Matgeek” came and thought us so many good things! We also got the chance to buy his book about butter. I’m thrilled!
One of the two very nice desserts that we “made” with Johan. He also tought us a trick, how to always succed with our marangs!
Everyone ready for cava Mater class, with seven wonderfull cavas Gran Reserva. Cavas Hill, Vilarnau, Juvé y Camps, Castell d’Ange, Llopart, Gramona and Recaredo. Everyone were very excited and happy to be able to try such a great line up!
Cooking together with Kristoffer who is a professional chef (and ecpecially good in spanich food). We did three wonderful and very special dishes. Great fun and we learned so much!
Asparragus with pickled coltsfoot and rosted buckweat. Strange but so good.
“blood pancakes” with sour milk, rum and dill.
After this we went home and slept like loggs! But the day was amazing and we met so many new friends that have the same interests as we do. Hopfully we will all keep in contact through social media.
Thanks to everyone who particiapted and a million thanks to Karin and Ulrik who organised it all. AND a big thank you to all the producers who made the fantastic cavatasting possible!
