A little Scandi recipe for you this morning....

26.9.12


Gravlax (grav-lax) is a quintessential Scandinavian dish, first taking hold 
in the Middle Ages when fishermen would fermented it beneath the shoreline’s
 sand. Translating literally into “buried salmon,” gravlax no longer requires
 fermentation, but is rather prepared in a dry marinade that cures the salmon
 through a process of osmosis. The dish is considered gourmet food by most fine
 dining aficionados, and is regularly paired with arugula salads, toast or crackers.

For every pound of raw salmon, you’ll need:

2 tbs salt
2 tbs sugar
2 tsp ground black pepper
1c. of dill

It’s important to use fillet cuts of salmon—meaning the fish has been portioned 
parallel to the backbone. This minimises how many bones are in the cut itself.
 Still, examine the salmon for any bones both by looking at the fish and by feeling
s its surface. If you come across any leftover bone, remove with needle nose pliers.

Next, you’ll want to place the salmon on a large piece of plastic wrap—about four
 times the length of the portion—with the skin-side facedown. Mix the salt, sugar
 and black pepper in a small bowl before spooning it over the exposed flesh, 
ensuring that as much of the fish is covered as possible. Without cutting the 
dill up, place on top of the salmon fillet so that it runs the length of the fish.
 If the dill is too long, snap off the ends or fold them onto each other. Our rule
 of thumb is: the more sprigs, the better.

Wrap everything together in the plastic wrap, making sure that the bundle is 
seale tight. Then, take a second piece of plastic wrap and cover the fish 
again. Laythis package inside a baking dish, so that the juices from the 
curing process arecaught without making a mess. Refrigerate the salmon 
for at least two days, whichboth allows the salmon to cure as well as the 
flavours to set in. The longer you keep it untouched, the more flavourful 
your gravlax will be.


Once the salmon is ready to come out of the fridge, open the wrapping and remove

 the dill. Wash the salmon in cold water to remove the salt and pepper and any 
leftover sprigs, then gently dry with paper towels


Yum! in-fact this is something that I am going to do this weekend :)

Enjoy!

Office space...

24.9.12

I work from home and I frequently find my self wondering how it would be to work 
in an office with other people. (Well I do work side-by-side with my boyfriend 
and business partner James - but that doesn't count).  It would be cool to be able
 to bounce ideas around the office and have some nice gossip sessions....maybe
 I wouldn't get any work done though? At least I wouldn't be stopping every five
 minutes to do the washing, or preparing dinner! Hmm who knows, I love my home
 office space and of course I have complete creative control about how it looks 
and feels - something that is very important  to me.

Here are some office spaces that have some very nice details....

Weekend...

15.9.12

I can't remember the last time that I had no plans for the weekend.  I have been so looking forward to it! I have had lots of guests this week, I had to reach a major deadline on Thursday and spent Friday running errands in central London. Today? Saturday? Breeeeaaath! I slept until ten and had breakfast made for me by my gorgeous boyfriend.  I am going to sit and go through my emails, have a little blog surf and then will spend the afternoon in Starbucks with some magazines and my Ipad :) Then we will take a walk before dinner and cosy up with a movie later.  Bliss.

What are your plans today?
Do you have plans for a blissful day?

Milk...

4.9.12

is such an integral part of every day life
especially in Scandinavia.
I love the design of this final year design project
"Tine Melk - Mountain Milk" by Anders Drage.

I just finished two years of graphic design study, and this was my final exams. 
The brief was to make a packaging design of something you love. 
I love milk – so my choice of product was easy…I think this is how it 
should have looked if Norway’s biggest milk retailer launched a 
milk to be sold internationally. “
