Lanthandeln

lanthandeln-3

[The country store] Nordanå, Ernst Westerlunds allé, 931 22 Skellefteå Lanthandeln I wanted to do an advent calendar on the blog this year. To document my first Christmas in Sweden. Except that after planning the posts, drawing illustrations, and baking a few – of the many I had on my list – traditional Swedish biscuits, […]

Baity kitchen

baity-7

172 walton street, SW32JL http://www.baitykitchen.com/ I’ve told you about Baity before. Well, mostly about that absolutely adorable guy with the glasses and his Greek iced coffee. But, really, this place is the dimestore diamond of Chelsea. It’s understated, in the best way possible; especially when all you get around are 12£ lattes (remind me to […]

Note #2 – On heart-shaped dreams

heart-shaped-dreams

“I am just a dreamer, and but you are such just a dream.” — Neil Young That moment when I’m going all tumblr-ish on you. Yes, it’s time for it. PS. And the worst part is: it’s not over. PS bis. You can thank the amazing type-writer. PS (the last one). What’s your all-time favourite […]

Marylebone, London, early August It was a Wednesday. We walked through Manchester square; looking at trees turning to that golden shade we all long for. Then three hours later, we realised there was something else we longed for. Something that Roganic – and his head chef Ben – just delivered to us in the form […]

19 blandford st, W1U 3DH http://www.roganic.co.uk/ Ben Spalding has puzzle pieces tattooed on his arms. Eating at Roganic did feel like putting all those bits together. One at a time. We sat at the table, with rescued wine bottles as water glasses. A foam – straight from the siphon – turned into a deep-red liquid. […]

Caravan

11-13 exmouth market, EC1R 4QD http://www.caravanonexmouth.co.uk/ My playground love. With his blue eyes and boyish smile. With his barefoot habit in the winter and his cute front teeth. Yes, Caravan is just like this. A slice of home outside a home. A slice of time that’s long gone. And perhaps – for the right-nowness – […]

Le Mirazur

mirazur mauro colagreco-12

When the view from our table looked like sun sparkles, green leaves and just enough coral to guess the town of Menton, we really didn’t think that things were about to get better. And yet, we knew. Because of all the beautiful words we’d read about Mauro Colagreco. Because – and it sometimes doesn’t mean […]

NOPI kitchens

21 warwick street, W1B 5NE http://www.nopi-restaurant.com/ The perfect day needs no more than a person I love as much as he finds me annoying, and enough drinks and food to keep us going – let’s be honest, mostly drinks. It might get even perfect-er with the addition of bright-green grass to lay on, and a […]

Brew

45 northcote road, SW11 1NJ Possibly on of the few reasons I love Clapham Junction, this café makes the best breakfast. All day long. And this is worth more than words can say. At least, from where I stand, it is. You know that kind of place that makes your days better. That makes you […]
