Photos from a great lunch
Last week, I was invited to a lunch at F12, one of Stockholm's great restaurants. Or so I've heard - I'd never eaten there before. The host was Danish Meat Association, and we were treated to an entire menu with pork. Lovely stuff! We are promised to get the recipes shortly, and I really look forward to that.
When I do, this is what I'll be making first. It was a salad of celeriac and curly leaves, with a mayonnaisey dressing, marinated apples and crunchy candied walnuts. And, of course, crispy pork. Yummy!
This was nice too - slow-roasted porchetta, with fennel and apricots.
And this was neat - a tiny burger made from pig's cheeks, with a slice of fresh fig.
In addition, there were two courses that I didn't manage to take a photo of. First, an indiviudal bowl of cassoulet which was very yummy - the broth was really great and had sliced truffles in it. Second, thin lengths of pork tenderloin were wrapped in red chorizo, to imitate Danish "röd pölse", a red hotdog that's very famous. This was served with homemade ketchup and mustard.
And, though I hate to admit it, my favorite of all the dishes: dessert. This is a creme brulée with orange and cinnamon, and it was incredibly delicious.
Even the bread and butter were quite special - I loved the presentation.
