I am an omnivore – I eat everything. And don’t get me wrong, I really like meat. However, I am a fan of the veggie-wave that has washed over my home city of Stockholm. When I was younger, the vegetarian dish on the menu was something that came out of a jar. Today, some of the best tasting menus in town are green, and I really appreciate it. Not because I don’t want there to be meat, but I, like many, believe that it is good for your health to have a good intake of plants. It does not feel like a sacrifice, because vegetarian food today is super delicious. I know this is a popular topic, so I thought I would give a few tips for having a good green meal (with wine and other yummy drinks) in Stockholm. Continue reading “Veggie Wonderland in Stockholm”
This weekend, I have using time on my travel guide on Tripsteri. Our great team of talented media-professionals (not talking about me) made it to the finale of a Finnish media innovation competition, Uutisraivaaja; we have signed a book deal for a series of printed travel books, and last and probably least I have a post coming out on Tuesday on the star studded Michelin-scene in Stockholm. I already wrote to you about that, but now I have some awesome pictures that will make you crave for a night out in the city Continue reading “Wineweek 123: What it Means to Believe in Yourself”
If I can point out one food trend in Stockholm for the coming year, it is all vegan (or at least vegetarian) restaurants. I guess it is a natural follower for the eco-trend, and a good predecessor for eating insects (I have heard that there is already cricket-muesli). An all vegetable lunch or dinner is no longer for those who believe in the diet, but for all of us, who enjoy well made food. The uphill probably started already a year or two ago, but it is now that we main-streamers are picking it up. The latest, and most visible addition to the Stockholm restaurant scene is Rutabaga, star-chef Mathias Dahlgrens new all vegetarian restaurant.
This week has been awesome! A-W-E-S-O-M-E! The beginning of the year has been so slow that I feel like I have been awakened from a long hibernation. Even the flu has not stopped me this week as we have had one nice meal after another. What am I ranting about? Well our nights out at Cafe Nizza and Mathias Dahlgrens Matbaren of course. We also drank some nice wines at home as well as tasted a range of Taittinger champagnes at our wine cellar. Yes! It has been a week of food and wine, and I feel very excited to tell all about it.
