About this Cook
I love to cook, and especially to try new dishes, new methods of preparation and sometimes, WOW!, a small adjustment makes the difference! It's so fun:
My favorite things to cook
Umami means "delicious taste" in japanese cooking. Umami is the 5th taste, and I am constantly trying to find out more umami secrets in the Italian,Asian,French and traditional Scandinavian cooking. My favourite "chef" and cookbook- writer is Anna del Conte and the Norwegian chefs Bent Stiansen and Eivind Hellstrøm.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Marzipan for Christmas- I have made that in about 45 years now. The rib of pork on christmas eve is always fun- how crispy will the rind be this year? And I love my husband Peters tomato soup, it is always perfect.
My cooking triumphs
Bucatini with lobster. Tajarin with mushroom sauce. Glazed breast of duck with spinach,peach and a crisp,yet savoury asian style roll, filled with walnuts, figs etc.
My cooking tragedies
A raw leg of lamb for easter, I forgot to check the oven temperature !! Burnt bechamella sauce for lasagna and many more tragic events during my years as a home cook.

Burger or Hot Dog Buns
These buns are perfect! I made them with half the amount of sugar and let the dough rise twice. Will always use this recipe from now on.
