We’ve been to Copenhagen a couple of times in the last couple of years. We’ve shared with you our favorite places to have brunch (one & two), where to find the best pizza or where to stay. And even though it’s quite a small city, Copenhagen has so much to offer that we can’t get enough of it. It’s stylish and welcoming, colourful and black and white, traditional and avantgard.We would love to come back and finally spend a day in Tivoli (we haven’t been there yet!), eat the most amazing vegetables in Geist, discover The Standard and walk under the warm Spring sun in Kogens Have. Last weekend we saw this film and we thought that Summer in Copenhagen has to be amazing, don’t you think? By the way, the film is pretty good. It showcases the city beautifully. We saw the film and immediately felt a Wanderlust attack. Now we just want to rent two bikes and get lost in Copenhagen! Does that happen to you too? Which films make you want to travel? In Bruges was definitely a clear “pack your bags and go” …
Hello! We hope you’ve had a wonderful Easter! We are still on mini vacation and we are trying to make the most of it. Besides, on Friday we head to Berlin for The Hive Conference so this week looks pretty good! And nothing better to start the week than an old school chocolate mousse. Well, this chocolate mousse will actually improve any week, month or year. It’s pure pleasure. Creamy happiness. Airy delight. This is a real show stopper and it’s my dessert of choice if I want to make a good impression. If you follow every step you will find that it’s actually very easy to prepare.
Our first visit to Stockholm was almost perfect. I guess that the brilliant sun that shined during the whole weekend helped us seeing the city through joyful glasses. We didn’t visit all the museums, we missed a few sights and we took it extremely easy, so this is not a post about the things you must do or the places you shouldn’t miss. This is just what we loved. If you enjoy slow paced weekends, eating a lot when travelling and staring speechless in front of a beautiful sunset, then keep reading…
The book of the Hemsley sisters is still going strong in our kitchen. We have tried several recipes (on the blog here and here) and we continue to discover new fantastic flavors and healthy options. This recipe is a simple take on chicken curry. Not at all complicated, very juicy and a tad spicy. You can serve it with cauliflower rice or brown rice. Either way, you will have a nice balanced natural meal.
Last week we ate a lot of cookies. A LOT. But it was for research, so it’s ok. We wanted to know which super blogger had the most amazing chocolate cookie recipe and so we baked Emily’s and Naomi’s chocolate chip cookies and tested the results afterwards. Oh the things we do for the blog! Welcome to our first bake off!
Banana bread is perfect for long train trips, long hours at the office and long weekends. It’s moist, it’s delicious and has fruit on it, which obviously means it’s light and healthy (it’s not, but let’s pretend). This recipe can’t be easier so we dare you to bake it just once. We’re sure you won’t be able to resist to bake it at least once a week!
Copenhagen is one of our favorite places in the world. We love everything about it: the city is not too big but offers thousands of possibilities, almost everyone is friendly (and really good-looking), the architecture and design are outstanding and there is a fantastic food scene. We’ve decided to put together our list of recommendations in case you are thinking about visiting Copenhagen. These are just some of our favorite places and things to do for a laid-back, relaxing weekend. Don’t expect a full guide of monuments, transport tips or historical facts. But! If you want to spend a few days wandering around Copenhagen, eating great food, doing some shopping and enjoying life, then this might be of your interest.
These gyozas are the best gyozas we’ve ever eaten. And oddly enough we found them in a small japanese restauran in Seville. While Seville is famous because of its traditional Spanish cuisine and, of course, tapas, during the last five years the city has developed a nice taste for international menus. Being La Alameda Seville’s hippest district, there was no better location for Matsuri, a sophisticated yet cosy Japanese restaurant (where you can eat these amazing gyozas).
We discovered Gorm’s a while ago while strolling around Torvehallerne. The pizzas looked delicious: super thin crust and fresh natural toppings. So last Satuday we were delighted to bump into their restaurant in the heart of Copenhagen, Nyhavn. In the middle of a little snow storm, the warm candle light, the scent of oregano and the prospect of a nice glass of rosé seemed heaven on Earth.
Vesterbro is the hipster area of Copenhagen so that means it is probably the hipsterest place on Earth (apart from Austin, Texas). You would expect beards, plaid shirts and lots of bikes. Well, you’ll find thousands of bikes, but that’s normal in Copenhagen. However, no abundance of beards or obvious trends in sight. Oh no. They are cooler than that. Subtle, relaxed and extremely polite. That’s Vesterbro.
