Gasoline Grill, Copenhagen

This is arguably the best burger we’ve ever had. And we bought it in an old petrol station. During our recent stay in Copenhagen we discovered THE BEST burger place that had been hidden in plain sight the whole time. Every time we visit Copenhagen we choose hotels or rent apartments in the same area, between Nyhavn and Kings Garden. This neighbourhood is fantastic because we can walk to almost every sight, we can have breakfast at Atelier September or dinner at Geist, it’s nice and quiet but still lively… In short, it’s perfect. One day, having lunch at Sticks and Sushi, which happens to be one of our favourites and it’s also located in the area, we spotted a long queue of people waiting to pick up burgers at a tiny burger joint inside an old petrol station. We were shocked. We had seen the place lots of times but we never thought about trying it.  A short google search afterwards and we found out that Gasoline Grill was named one of the best …

Spicy chicken burger

We love preparing our own burgers from scratch, using the best quality products we can afford. Elevated fast food, if you will. That’s why we have a couple of cookbooks dedicated to burgers, being this one our favourite. This recipe is our take on an Indian inspired burger recipe that we discovered in that book. It’s delicious, it admits lots of variations, though we like to keep things simple. You’ll need (serves 2): 200 gr ground chicken 1 tablespoon of seasoning blend (more on that later) A pinch ground cinnamon Salt 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil 4 to 5 tablespoons Greek yogurt 1 garlic clove, grated 2 tablespoons lemon juice 1 tablespoon of cilantro, finely chopped 2 tablespoon of mint leaves, finely chopped A handful of baby leaves 1 tomato, sliced Ideally,grilled naan bread. But you can use buns, or toasties or whatever you want. First, make your very own fresh, fragrant seasoning blend: mix 1 tsp ground cumin, 1 tsp ground turmeric, 1 tsp paprika, 1 tsp ground coriander, 1 pinch of ground …

October Favorites

October was a very nice month. We’ve worked more than ever, but we also found the time to relax and celebrate my birthday! We did a nice little trip to Heidelberg, my mum was here to visit and the weather was astoundingly merciful allowing us to enjoy some beautiful Autumnal walks. Anyway! We start our favourites of the month with this amazing burger. A real highlight!

Not your average burger

This is probably the best burger we’ve ever eaten. And we made it at home. And it happens to be a chicken burger. And it doesn’t have a nice bun or a crunchy bread roll.  It’s different from every burger we’ve eaten and it’s absolutely delicious.

A secret kitchen

Today there are no food pictures. How come will you ask… it’s mmm…Monday! Well, today it’s all about mystery. In Amsterdam we enjoyed one of the funniest, more exciting dinners of our lives. But we can’t show you any pictures or give you much more information because it took place in a secret kitchen!

Summer recipes

Do you need some ideas for your Summer dinner parties? Here you have a few suggestions rescued from our archives… 1. Roast chicken with lemon and rosemary potatoes: this recipe is light but a has a lovely Sunday family dinner feel to it. Perfect to share with your loved ones. Pair it with chilled white wine. 2. Fancy salad: this is one of the first recipes we published. A succulent salad that mixes Jamón Ibérico and figs: an unexpected sweet and salty combination. Super easy but utterly delicious! 3. Exotic menu: this recipe screams dinner date. It’s a little bit sophisticated but natural and spicy. Indian food meets Mediterranean flavours with a touch of Japanese charm. 4. Mojito fruit salad: Fruit and Mojitos… is that a starter or a dessert? Anyway, it’s refreshing and tempting, just like a swimmingpool on a hot Sumemr day. 5. Burger all’amatriciana: Summer is the time for barbecues and this recipe can be a game changer. Roasted tomatoes and pancetta as a condiment. Need I say more? 6. A different …

Patty & Bun

Welcome to the second chapter of our gourmet Marylebone series! A couple of weeks ago we finally tried Patty & Bun burgers. We’ve heard a lot about them and we had seen the queue on the street so we wanted to know what all the fuss was about.

Burger all’amatriciana

This weekend we decided to try a recipe from one of the last cookbooks we bought: The book of burger. We love gourmet burgers and this book has more of 200 recipes! This time we went Italian and prepared a wonderful burger with delicious roasted tomatoes that was simply amazing.
