    Ramson pesto

    Seriously, this is the best thing I’ve for the whole spring Call me patheticly romantical when it comes to everything from the fabuolous island of Gotland or maybe it’s just the spring arriving, but the first ramson always eagerly awaited and appreciated. There are lots of other places in Sweden where you can also pick [...]

  • Rhubarb

    Rhubarb cordial with elderflower

    Rhubarb cordial taken to the next level So far it’s been a fantastic year for rhubarb. Lots of rain and just enough sunshine. Don’t think I’ve watered the little chaps more than a couple of times and they just keep growing. First up in the rhubarb indulgence was of course some pie with feta cheese, [...]

  • Buns cardamom

    Swedish cardamom buns

    Cinnamon Bun Day 2013 was celebrated without cinnamon but with the best bun. At one stage back in time I ended up – and don’t ask me how – in a discussion about which spice you absolutely couldn’t live without. The obvious choices came up, like vanilla, chili and someone who had had one Fernet [...]

  • Hello my beloved strawberry ice cream

    Now then, it’s proper summer It’s been a magnificently stressful week. After having sold our flat (when our neighbours sold theirs, there were some additional bidders and we just couldn’t resist) and gone house hunting a few months ago, we realised that time was running out. While waiting for our dream house to turn up, [...]

  • Hot cocoa

    My best hot chocolate

    Let’s talk hot chocolate for a few minutes. I think I said it before, but I’ll say it again – there is nothing wrong with prefab hot cocoa like Swiss Miss when you’re in places like Sälen or any other ski-resort, smeared with sunblock like a movie from the 80′s and air is filled with the [...]

Where am I? Will there be cake?

You found my collection of recipes that is a mirror of my Swedish original site Matgeek.se. With absolutely no professional background my kitchen is experiencing everything from traditional Swedish food to French pastries. Feedback is my drug of choice and if you have any ideas on things I should try, please don't hesitate to tell me!

Rhubarb curd

Rhubarb curd

Yummie curd made of tender Spring rhubarbs I love rhubarb on a level only be compared to that of champagne and well made Belgian chocolate. This has probably something to do with those moments when Spring has just sprung and you start preparing the vegetable beds for all the goodies about to be sown – [...]

Spruce shoot syrup

Spruce shoot syrup

Time for some fun in the forest For almost a year I have jealously looked at my friend Tina’s jar of spruce shoot syrup in their kitchen window and I swear – it’s teasing me on purpose. But that has come to an end now that it’s finally the big spruce shoots season! Spruce shoots is [...]

Swedish rye bread

Traditional Swedish rye bread

Payback for those Sunday evenings on the bike When I was little, I did what many other young boys in need of a first extra income did – I handed out leaflets. Fortunately, my patch was a central area of Sala which mainly consisted of villas. The good thing with these was that you could [...]
