Kitchen World Tour Day 44 and first of the D’s: Denmark

Tonight I served Frikadeller and Sukkerroer Salad

Frikadeller are Danish pork meatballs, which are customarily served with a creamy gravy and beetroot salad. The Sukkerroer (beetroot) salad had heaps of horseradish so packed a lovely kick.

Next up: Djibouti

Cypriot Meze: Hummus, Tzatziki, Marinated Olives, Sesame Bread sticks, Butter Beans in Tomato Sauce, Lamb Souvlaki, Cypriot Village Salad and of course Grilled Haloumi.

Been letting myself fall behind with my posts. Cooked the first E country last night and still posting C’s. Kas has kicked me in the arse this arvo to catch up.

Tonight we enjoyed a fantastic platter of Mediterranean foods and of course Haloumi which originates from Cyprus. Anyone that hasn’t made their own Hummus and Tzatziki must try it sometime. Really simple and so much better than anything store bought.

Next Up: Czechia (the new name of the Czech Republic)

Vepřo knedlo zelo is roasted pork served with bread dumplings called Houskový Knedlík, and cooked sauerkraut called Dušené Kyselé Zelí. We used a pork loin for super tenderness. The bread dumplings are rolled into small logs, boiled and then cut for serving.

The sauerkraut was the most surprising. Never thought of cooking it before, simply just eaten it raw. It is gently boiled which takes away alot of the bitterness of the preserving liquid and then sauted onion, bacon, caraway seeds are added. The result was surprisingly good.

Day 40 on the Kitchen World Tour. Cevapi and Ajvar for main course, and Krostule for dessert.

Been a bit slack on the kitchen tour front. Time for a bit of a catch up.

For Croatia we have Cevapi, skinless sausages char grilled and served with Ajvar which is an eastern European relish made from eggplant and capsicums. I served these on flatbread with pickled peppers and a yoghurt dressing.

Krostule are sweet vanilla pastries that are deep fried. These are well known across parts of Europe, sometimes under other names such as Crostoli, Faworki and Chrusciki, and disappear as soon as they are served. Delish.

Next Up: Cuba
