Aarhus Street Food


There are a multitude of reasons why Rikke and I have remained friends for over two decades, across two continents, and when life and circumstance have only had us connecting over social media for the past fifteen years. Yikes! But one of the reasons I adore her is her ability to know exactly what will make my little foodie heart soar. One a grey afternoon in Aarhus, she uttered two words that warmed me right up: Street. Food.


So, off we went to Aarhus Street Food. This collection of street food vendors was housed inside - thankfully! - and all served out of cargo boxes versus food trucks.


D made his way to the Thai offering because the giant nisse caught his eye.


Jake found his bliss with a burger and a beer. Rikke ordered a falafel and I think R chose a tuna bowl.


And I refrained from shrieking, but I think I might have squealed when I saw the duck stand. Duck?!? If only duck were that mainstream in this country. Duck It! offered shredded duck burgers, duck boats (hash browns filled with duck), and more. I opted for the duck fries which had perfectly cooked potatoes fried in duck fat and topped with shredded duck. Yeah, I was in ducky heaven.


At another stand, I asked for a local Danish brewed saison. I ended up with a session (IPA). So, something was a little lost in translation. But this cloudy beer was called Sticky Fingers from Flying Couch Brewing out of Copenhagen. I'm not usually a fan of IPAs, but this was good and I liked how it paired with the duck fries.


Here is our happily sated crew. Cheers!


When we make it back to Aarhus, this is on our list again!

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
