I was born and raised in Peru, a great culinary country that also happens to have the biggest Japanese community in Latin America. If you grew up in Peru you would know the term "Nikkei". It is the Japanese immigrants and their descendants. This meeting of cultures in Peru resulted in the wonderful "Nikkei cuisine" - a fusion of Japanese and Peruvian food. The dishes and ingredients of Peru are combined with those of Japan and prepared in accordance with the methods of both kitchens.
We were invited to the launch party of the Michelin Guide Nordic Cities 2015 by our good friend André Blomberg-Nygård. This is the first year Nordic cities get their own guide, as previosuly all the Nordic capitols in addition to Gothenburg have just been included in the Main Cities of Europe Guide. Expectations were... somewhat high, but a lot of food writers also had low expectations as the Michelin Guide has not prioritized the Nordics much so far.
It is not every day you get an invitation to dine at an Ambassador's table. Certainly not as simple food bloggers. Thus, when we were invited to "Taste of Sardinia", a dinner at the Italian Embassy in Oslo, we were humbled, excited and accepted gladly.
After the Korean cookalong that Anders took part in, we got another invite from Samsung. This time to a christmas lunch. Anders couldn't come because of work so I was the only one going.
This was a bloggers event, on December 4th last year, and it all took place in the new HQ of Samsung at Skøyen. As it turned out our friendsJulie and TK were there as well, which made me very happy.
Once I got there I saw a kitchen station where the amazing blogger and confectioner Elin was baking gingerbread cookies.
Here you can find all the restaurants I visit and frequent. From Berlin to Helsinki and from Oslo to Lima.
