Our first birthday was celebrated in style at Scandi Kitchen. We served nice herring and even nicer lagkage (layer cake). all day to anyone who fancied it and we even had a little soiree in the evening for some close friends from the hood and around.
The best bits from our birthday were:
All the nice flowers and cards we got – thank you to everyone who brightened up our day, we love them
Knowing we have lots of friends
A few of you feeling the warmth after a few aquavits in the evening – we liked the dancing. And hugging.

About 700 canapés were eaten at our little party – these are the crayfish and coriander tunnbröd rolls – very popular indeed.
Seb was doorman, Josh popped by and Phil the Photographer didn’t take many photos but did spend time trying to get away from Jonas, who was on a mission with a lagkage…

Bronte went to Fruit Towers (as innocent’s head quarters are called) today – she’s worked at innocent for many years but now she is finally full-time Scandi Kitchen.
To celebrate, the Cheese CLub at innocent had a Scandinavian day today – and we brought along several interesting cheeses that we also stock at our little shop:
Vasterbotten, a 12-14 month ages hard cheese not unlike parmesan in texture but so seriously tasty on crispbread it is hard not to eat the whole packet.
Brunost – brown cheese, literally. Whey, cream and milk is boiled until the sugar in the milk turns almost into caramel and this gives the cheese it’s distinct colour and sweet flavour.
Gamle Ole – stinky, stinky cheese. Strong. Lovely. Great finish. Blaa Kornblomst: Blue cornflower, a lovely creamy blue cheese with a great finish. Not too strong, but still with a good bite (Organic from a small Danish dairy). Last but not least: Esrom cheese. Some claim it is the king of Danish cheeses; strong, and as our Tobias desribes it: “with a nice flavour of cow shed at the end”. Yummy.
It’s tradition at innocent drinks’ Cheese Club to vote for the favourite at the end of a long tasting session and Gamle Ole was a clear winner.
Fruit towers, where Bronte used to work and where people love smoothies and cheese. A lot.
