Most likely to make us fat and unhappy Magnus at Supreme Roastworks gave us some leftover bread in one of our visits. To revenge this evil act we made it into a caramel bread pudding, tasted just a few slices ourselves, and gave it back as a gift to the baristas!
We treated ourselves with some more dry-aged meat from Anni's Pølsemakeri. This time we got some lamb sirloins. During one of our last restaurant visits in Oslo this year, to Brasserie Paleo (review coming up later), we got inspired by one of their dishes that had Jerusalem artichokes prepared in three different ways. We decided to cook 'em, fry 'em and mash 'em.
SALMA contacted us and asked us to make a few recipes for their newly launched websitewww.salma.no. We accepted the challenge! But we had to think hard to make an exciting and good looking dish to match Heia Mat, Mat på Bordet and Fru Timian who had already contributed.
In one of our many trips to Mathallen in Oslo we came across this new brand of Danish products called Nordisk Køkken. We immediately fell in love with many of the oils and condiments they were selling. However, we also had to try their "kartoffel" soup, or potato soup. We usually like to make stuff like that from scratch, but this looked very tempting and the brand seemed to be very focused on quality ingredients. It is all organic and natural without gluten, preservatives or artificial additives.
Since we wouldn't be making the soup ourselves we decided to pimp it! With lobster!
I was watching a cooking magazine the other day and saw these amazing cannellonis stuffed with spinach. I got the pasta cravings. As Anders and I aren't eating gluten on weekdays, I decided to make crêpes as a substitution of pasta. And it worked like a charm! I cant wait to make some lasagna using the same crêpés recipe. As for the filling, I added ground chicken to the recipe as I couldn't add mozzarella and I needed the stuffing to become more solid. Ground chicken helped maintain the form. I hope you guys enjoy this easy to make recipe.
There is a Ramen craze sweeping Oslo at the moment. Most prominent at Hitchhiker and Smalhans, but ramen has invaded our Instagram feeds and Facebook timeline lately as well. We just had to make it ourselves.
After having Jan Robin's ramen at Hitchhiker last weekend (Anders had it three times) , I decided to
Anni's Pølsemakeri have more than just sausages as their name suggests, and has become our favorite butcher shop in Oslo. They keep surprising us with the various cuts of meat they produce or import, like entrecôte from Grambo Gård, rabbit (blogpost coming up later), duck hearts, gizzards, suckling pig and now dry-aged pork and lamb.
After catching Interstellar at the movies, we went to Meny at Ringnes Park to buy some stuff for breakfast the next day. Andrea discovered a can of 100% pure pumpkin puree in the shelves, and the next day Mr. Paleo Pumkin Pie was born
