Snow and sushi

The “crossing” from 2011 to 2012 was of course not done without a proper feast. A sushi workshop / feast among good friends to be exact. It was so delish that when 12 o´clock rolled around, we glanced at each other, raised our glasses, then continued eating!

Sumptuous ceviche

Ok. My absolute favorite this summer is the Latin American dish ceviche. Hands down. I suspect many different interpretations of ceviche will swim out of my kitchen this summer!

The elegance of the “raw” fish, the tang of lime, the crispness of koriander and the slow, warm heat of the chili is perfect as a lunch snack in the shade – accompanied by ice-cold beer and some salty tortilla chips!

Roasted leg of lamb (helstekt lammelår)

Easter and lamb go together like fish and chips, peanut butter and jelly, Sonny and Cher… You get the point. I would claim that Norway has the best lamb in the world. All summer long they graze either up in the mountains or along the coast. This gives the meat a fantastic flavor! So let´s do it justice 🙂

This recipe is a classic Norwegian dish; a slowly roasted leg of lamb served with creamed and gratinated potatoes and vegetables. And a lovely red vintage Rioja – never wrong.
