Hello, hello! We just got back to New York, did laundry, and had a meal at our favorite Thai restaurant. It feels amazing to be here, even though we’re camping out at our friends’ home. Now we’re headed to Vermont for our workshops! What an adventure our lives have been lately. I can’t wait to see how this weekend unfolds. And for today, a recipe I wanted to share with you…
While in Norway, we stayed in Bergen at this great little “budget” hotel (Klosterhagen). It turns out they had a particularly AMAZING breakfast each morning. Everything was local or homemade. Think several kinds of smoked trout, smoked cod, smoked herring, homemade bread, honey comb, homemade butter, 7 different kinds of homemade marmalade, homemade brown cheese, pâté, shrimp salad, herbed chicken, homemade yogurt, muesli, fresh fruit, freshly pressed green juices. Everything was so dang expensive in Norway (three times as much as NYC!) that we pretty much dreamed of that free breakfast all day!!
And, the best part: they brought out WARM, GLUTEN-FREE bread for me every morning! It may have been the best I’ve ever had. It was so fun for me to eat delicious bread, I can’t even tell you. I had to ask the chef for the recipe and he graciously obliged. Here it is – both in English and Norwegian. I can’t wait to try making my own. I’d love to hear if you give it a try. Also, do you have a favorite gluten free all purpose flour?
And, do you ever ask restaurants for recipes? I do it all the time! Have you scored any good recipes?
