We love to talk food and drink in combination. Doing it with amazingly talented chefs is even more fun. Now on Sunday we get help from Kristian Smith who in the spring released the book ”Roots – Jamaican food & culture”.
Kristian has over 20 years of experience in the restaurant industry from both London and Stockholm. In recent years, Kristian has been based in Stockholm, where he has been responsible for the culinary creativity at the world-famous restaurant Flippin ’Burgers and its sister restaurants Lådan & Dogfood.
Kristian will show us how to make Jerk Chicken. Jerk Chicken has a heat that can be difficult to combine with wine, beer is usually the best. Or a classic Caribbean space punch. But Daniella has picked out some wines and will crack the code of what can best suit.
Interview I have done with Annika Radlund for Hotell & Restaurang magazine. We talked about my roots in London, Jamaican food and culture, Hobo XO and my cookbook with Natur & Kultur Also you can get a peek at one of my recipes from the cookbook escovitch fish.
Some inspiration from my upcoming cookbook yesterday. Svenska Dagbladet presented 3 recipes from my book for people to try at home. Jamaican style fried chicken, streamed fish and watermelon & mango salad. Something different to try at home this week with your family? More recipes available in my book Roots Jamaicansk Mat & Kultur publishers by Natur & Kulturon the 15th May!
A year ago it all started on a flight home from USA writing a rough draft about jerk cooking. Fast forward to today and the finished book is in the process of being printed. Now it’s a reality after the work put in by everyone involved at my publisher Natur & Kultur. I am so proud to share a little part of my culture in Sweden.
I did a guest appearance at the Bib Gourmand Bar Agrikultur where I served a Jamaican menu during one evening.
So humbled by last nights guest appearance at Bar Agrikultur. The positive vibes and great feed back on a menu I am very proud of. A very big thank you to Joel Åhlin and the Bar Agrikultur team for allowing me into there kitchen. Also for the help in prep and service to put this together! ?????? Who knows maybe we do it again next year!
Lastly thank you to everyone that came and enjoyed the vibe last night!
