Mussles in white wine

December 9, 2016

It’s time for a gourmet moment on my blog! I’d like to share one of my childhood favourite dishes has been mussels in a white wine, more known to Mediterranean people as “buzara sauce”. This dish is so simple to prepare, but very rich in flavour and even though, it doesn’t look like there is much to eat, it does fill you up very well!

Gourmet moment: Baked arctic char

October 12, 2016

This Wednesday shall start off with a yummy recipe in my “Gourmet moment” where I share my home cooked meals with you which will hopefully inspire you to try cooking and experimenting with different food at home. Cooking at home is therapeutic for me and I love to challenge myself and always try to either invent some new recipes or twist and adjust already tried recipes and make them even better. ūüôā

Taco lunch

August 24, 2016

Tacos for lunch?! Count me in! Ever since living in LA, I got so hooked on Mexican food and there, we had plenty of options on every corner. My favourite ones ended up being Antonio’s on Merlose Blvd and Pink Taco on Sunset Blvd. Here in Helsinki, we’ve been having more and more options to eat some good Mexican food too, some of the favourites being Pueblo, Chalupa and Cholo.

Today, I wanted to share one very simple, but delicious recipe for tacos which you can easily prepare at home too. It’s also not time consuming, so you’ll have your lunch ready in max. 30 mins from the moment you start prepping it.

Smoked salmon soup

Ever since moving¬†to Finland about 9 and half years ago, I had a chance to try many salmon soups. Finland is very well known to serve some of the best salmon soups in the world, but I wasn’t as impressed with that many as I was expecting. Out of all of the restaurants, cafes and even some home cooked salmon soups, there were maybe 2-3 of them which made me feel like I’ve been eating something really special and delicious.

Muutettuani Suomeen noin 9 ja puoli vuotta sitten. Olen saanut maistaa monen monta lohikeittoa. Suomi on tosi tunnettu maailman parhaista lohikeitoistaan, se on jo käsite maailmalla. Mutta en ollut loppujen lopuksi hirveän vakuuttunut monestakaan kokeilemasta keitosta. Kaikista ravintoloiden, kahviloiden ja jopa kotitekoisista keitoista, ehkä 2-3 saivat minut tunteman että olen syönyt jotakin todella erikoista ja herkullista.

Gourmet moment: Basil pesto

May 7, 2015

Hello everybody! How are you doing? Any nice plans for this weekend? If you find some time on your hands and feel like experimenting a little bit in the kitchen, here’s a recipe for my basil pesto. It’s the best pesto I have ever tasted and one bunch of this pesto lasts for quite a long time when preserved in the fridge. I like to make a very simple, but great dish with it – pesto pasta with cherry tomatoes and usually I put some crumbled feta or goat’s cheese on the top.
