My own little Burns Supper

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Neeps and tatties allright, and a little paprika beside. If haggis can be found in Stockholm, it is expensive I think, so I’ll have “Smålands isterband” which is somewhat similar but milder.

Food prices going up

leave a comment »

The international price of sugar increased 5,4% in January, according to the FAO Food Price index.
Is sugar food? Do we hear a big cry because of more expensive pastry and candy?

A butcher’s tale

leave a comment »

– Liver is alive. You put a bit of liver on a plate and come back after, and what’s happened?
– ???
– It’s moved! You take it from me. This town may be dead, but liver is alive.

From the BBC TV movie Framed, written by Frank Cottrell Boyce, directed by Andy DeEmmony, 2009.

Shochu

leave a comment »

Shochu is a Japanese distilled liquor that hardly one outside Japan knows of. It is made from various agrarian products, this one from barley, but it could have been rice, potato, or sweet potato as well. The “41” I do understand, the percentage of alcohol. You can use it in the same ways you use whisky, aquavit or vodka.

We always overslept the hotel breakfast time, but luckily Starbucks was easy to find!
