Boneless, marinated and grilled leg of lamb
Video Recipe - My favorite recipe for leg of lamb. The best taste and fairly quick preparation. What's not to love about it? The marinade and grilling results in a very good and strong flavor. The trick is that a the leg gets more surface when the bone is removed. And the surface is of course where most of the flavor is.
Boning and Butterflying a Leg Of Lamb
Video Recipe - Typically we fry a leg of lamb whole. Because it's the easiest to do. But a really good trick is to debone and butterfly it. You can cook it a lot faster then.

Hollandaise sauce
Video Recipe - One of the most classic sauces. Often used for fish and chicken. It ss always a hit. And as it is made ​​almost entirely of butter the consistency never fails. It can be a little tricky until you get the hang of it, but when you have learned to make it, it is one of the quickest and easiest sauces to make at all.
Homemade okara granola - sweet muesli with soy beans
When making soy milk there is a residue called "okara". If you roast it golden, it tastes like roasted almonds. It is therefore particularly suitable for a homemade "granola". And you, and the kids, will love it. It will not be a we-have-duty-to-eat-leftovers kind of thing, but a really good granola.
Foccacia bread
Recipe with video - Foccacia is an italian flatbread that is in family with the pizza. But unlike the pizza foccacia is served as a sidedish. I sometime serve it at family gatherings, where it dissapers like dew in the morning sun. And I am constantly asked for the recipe. So here it is.
Boxed Chorizo
When I cook fried vegetables, make Spanish omelettes, hash from leftovers, etc. I love to add small pieces of chorizo to them. It provides an incredible amount of flavor with small amounts of meat. But chorizo is a very expensive sausage to use in frying. Therefore it is a good candidate for making your own spicy chorizo stuffing, that you can just put into a box in the fridge and use as needed.
Fruit Juice Jelly - gelatin
Video Recipe - A delicious jelly of fresh juice really is a cheap trick. It can be a dessert in itself, or fruit pieces on top of a pie can be brushed with it to make'm shine. It can keep the sliced fruit fresh, on top of the cake. You can put a thick layer on top of a cake and make it brighter, more beautiful and delicious. Moreover, jelly was one of the first molecular gastronomy foods that was made. In the olden days it was only the nobles who got it. Now we can too.
Poire Belle-Hélène - Pears Cooked in Red Wine
I got them once somewhere in France I think. It was before the Internet and I did not have the recipe. But I liked them so much that I made a similar recipe. I usually only eat them in the fall when pears are in season. And a little cinnamon and cloves reminds me that Christmas will soon be upon us.
Classic Homemade fermented sauerkraut
Video Recipe - When it comes to sauerkraut the opinions are divided. Some love it and others hate it. I hardly ned to say where I belong, as I am currently writing a recipe for it. The saukraut that you can buy are typically made by putting cabbage into vinegar. This is certainly not the best way to do it. It should be made like yogurts and sourdoughs, by fermenting until it becomes really good and healthy.
Kvalitella - Because it rhymes with homemade Nutella
Video Recipe - My own recipe for a sweet hazel-nutty-chocolate'y spread. I don't think I have to tell you what it can be used for ...
Croissant made with butter and pain au chocolat
Video recipe - Some of the most difficult types of bread to bake are those made of laminated dough. Also called a viennese dough here in Denmark. Amusingly it is called "Danish pastry" in most of the rest of the world. The ultimate challenge is the croissant. It is very honest and has no filling, no remonce, no glaze or other things that can hide one's flaws. There are many ways of doing it, with different amounts of "rolling-butter", number of butter layers etc. This recipe is the one I think is the best version for beginners and experienced bakers alike.
Cold Carrot Soup with Whipped Cream
This might sound like an odd concoction, but the lightly spiced carrot soup and the cold whipped cream supplements each other perfectly. It is very nice as a starter or as just a part of a starter.
