gravad lax carrots

Leave a comment
dressings / Salads / Snacks

It all began with an intriguing recipe which promised the taste and the feeling of gravad lax by letting soak the carrots in a sophisticated marinade. In my perception the carrot strips developed a multi-aromatic taste with no ingredient overpowering the others. Not even the algae as expected. I should say that this recipe will not replicate the flavour of gravad lax. Rather the carrots no longer taste like carrots and gain a rich aroma […]

If you’re vegan, or just trying to […]

I just adore pears. Cute butt shapes and so many ways to prepare them. They are delicious with game, paired with elderberries and quinces for jam , poached or simply eaten out of hand. My pear tree had very little water and a lot of sun this summer and proudly presented me with seven (wow!) ripe pears. Here’s the recipe how I poached them with some lovely spices for my birthday lunch. poached pear with vanilla […]
