Food Lovers London: essential reading if you like food. And, eh… London.

July 6, 2010 | 3 Comments

Back in the day, Bronte was one of those curious people who liked going to specialist food shops and buy exotic things to eat – from trips to the Greek delis to the Spanish places; trips to Chinatown for the best Asian ingredients.

One day she stumbled over a book called Food Lovers London – and it soon became her bible when out shopping in London.  it was packed with amazing information, details of little gems of shops and where to go/what to eat and when to do it.  It was also the book that inspired her and Jonas to open Scandinavian Kitchen.

Written by acclaimed food writer Jenny Linford, Food Lovers London is now to be re-published and updated with all the latest information.  Jenny has been revisiting all the places and making sure the readers get the most up to date information about specialist food places in London.

And guess what?  Yeps.  We’re in it.  Not only are we IN it, there is also a picture of our Michaela in it.  Oh, and even more exciting:  guess who is hosting the official launch party for the book?

Yeps.  We are.  on July 14th, at Scandi Kitchen in the evening.  This event is strictly invites only (publishers, journos, people-in-the-know), but because we’re hosting it we have 2 x 2 tickets to give away to some very, very lucky people to attend.

The event starts at 7 pm.

To be in with a chance to win one of the two pairs of tickets, please answer the following question:

Chorizo is a dried sausage originally originating from:

a) Sweden

b) Spain

c) Switzerland

Answers to iloveherring@scandikitchen.co.uk by this Saturday evening, please.  Usual competition rules apply.

The book is available to buy at all good bookshops and at Amazon too.  We will also be selling it in the shop as soon as the new edition is out.

Oh, Joey…


Back in the days, Europe was THE band to listen to.  Bronte’s first ever album was The Final Countdown and her walls were adorned with colourful posters of Joey Tempest, the best looking man in rock at the time.

Jonas’s first concert was Europe (rumour has it he went with his Mum); he sported the hairstyle and he knew all the lyrics.

We suspect that Henrik loved them too, although he has never admitted to it officially.

The other day, just when Anna and Henrik were about to close up for the day and go home, the man himself, THE joey Tempest, walked in to Scandi Kitchen.   Oh yes.  It was really him.

Now, we don’t often get start struck, you know.  We’ve had A-Ha in the shop…  AQUA…  Basshunter.  But Joey Tempest:  now that is something else.
