When Mari went to the Ambassador’s house

March 16, 2012 | Leave a comment

Ever been to a real Amabassador’s house? There are gilded egdes on everything and they eat Ferrero Rochers for breakfast, noon and dinner. People dance all night long and some ladies leave just before midnight in a horse drawn carriage made out of an old pumpkin. Or something.

Last night, our Mari went to the Norwegian Amabassador’s house at the exclusive “no, you can’t drive a car down here because will.i.am and Ka.tie lives here” Kensington Palace Gardens. Mari and Jonas were there to drink Norwegian ales with the Ambassador. As you do.

All that remains of the event is this grainy photo. The dude on the picture behind the Ambassador and Mari is Harald. As in the King. You know.


Recipe: Cold buttermilk soup (Koldskål): a Danish sunshine obsession?

Cold buttermilk soup (Koldskål)

As soon as the sun comes out, a strange thing happens to the Danes: they start to miss Buttermilk Soup.
We know this because 1) the sun is out and 2) Bronte has a craving for buttermilk soup - as has all the other Danes at Scandi kitchen.

  • Buttermilk soup is a dessert - you whisk egg yolk with vanilla and sugar and adder the sour buttermilk to the mixture (buttermilk being the leftover "milk" when you make butter from cream). Nowadays, we don't often make butter at home - and butter milk has a super short shelf life anyway, so most of us buy it ready made in a carton and just add those sweet, delicious "kammerjunker" biscuits.
    Some of us like to add chopped strawberries too, for the flavour of real summer.
