Tuut tuut. That’s the sound of our trumpet again.

While we always appreciate constructive feedback, we also love it when you say lovely things. Only a few weeks ago, the lovely Mathilde wrote a really nice thing about us here LINK http://mathildescuisine.wordpress.com/2010/04/15/scandinavian-kitchen-an-introduction-to-the-nordic-diet/ and we’ve had more mentions around the place than we have room to chat about here. Flattering and lovely, thanks.

Never the less, we found this little write up from Slow Food Guide LINK http://www.slowguides.com/?p=927 . It was short, precise and our ears glowed bright pink after reading it. Thank you. Here it is, but do also have a look at the site, it has stuff about London, Sydney, Dublin and Melbourne too.

How do you say ‘love’ in Swedish?
Scandinavian Kitchen, we heart you. Your delicious food, your friendly service, the art on your walls. Your open arms (‘to hell with geography: as long as you like ice hockey and Eurovision, you can join our gang’). Scandinavian Kitchen, thanks for always finding time for a chat and a laugh amid the efficient service so necessary in Great Titchfield Street. We heart your light-heartedness (‘please speak up, we’re hard of herring,’ your T-shirts joke; there are old Abba records plastered on your bathroom walls). The groceries and sweets decorating your cosy space, and the Monmouth coffee served in your Scandinavia-is-oh-so-stylish cups. We heart your Nordic way of eating: warm porridge for breakfast, smorgasbord of meats and cheeses for lunch, fresh-baked cinnamon buns at any time. Your tips for eating healthily, especially number nine: ‘Eat sitting down. Don’t rush. Don’t eat on the go. It’s not very good for the digestion and you’ll never catch a Scandinavian trying to munch an open herring sandwich whilst waiting for Bus 38.’ Oh, Scandinavian Kitchen, can we be together forever?

Thanks, Slow Food Guide London. We heart you too.

Things you can do with Cheez Doodles

April 15, 2010 | Leave a comment

Just because you can, does not necessarily mean you should.

So, we wanted to blog a bit about cheeze doodles because we thought they were such a Swedish/Scandi thing. As it turns out, you can get them in America (and they were probably invented there also. Well, we guess it might be the case, seeing as it’s not exactly up there with volvos, zippers and dynamite in the scale of invensions the Swedes normally focus their time on).

Anyway, the month April and May is also known as Doodles-season, mainly due to Eurovision. In parts of Sweden, watching Eurovision without a bowl of Cheez Doodles in front of you is considered socially deviant.

We googled it and found that in America, some people are even more Cheez Doodle obsessed:

Cheeze1
You can bake with cheez Doodles…

Cheeze2
you can make art with it…

Cheeze3
Or take a bath in it.

Weirdos. Just eat them, covered in glow-in-the-dark dip-mix of varous flavours and be done with it.
