Home Fries - Brased Potatoes - Bratkartoffeln

Video Recipe - I have been eating home fries since I was a kid. We had it the traditional "Danish style" with just potatoes, fat for frying, salt and pepper. For the last few years though, I have acquired a taste for the German version "Bratkartoffeln" with onion and bacon.

Pan Fried Potatoes - Cottage Potatoes
Cottage potatoes are raw potatoes that are cooked in a frying pan. It's a good way to fry 2-4 servings of potatoes. However, it is not a good way to cook large quantities of potatoes. If they lie in layers on the pan, then the upper potatoes are cooked, and the bottom ones are in high risk of burning. There may be raw potatoes, hidden among the other ones and that can really make pan fried potatoes into a sad affair. Otherwise, you must use a really long frying time on large portions to be sure that all the potatoes are tender. At the risk of some getting burned. So here are my tips for making them.
Homemade popcorn
Video Recipe - One of the best snacks you can, well snack on, is also one of the easiest to make yourself. If you make them yourself, they are also much better than the ones you buy pre-popped. Warm and fresh. Maybe even made with clarified butter instead of oil. I get so sad when I see someone buying popcorn in bags from the supermarket when the homemade ones are twice as good. Maybe they are even 3.1415 times better !? So make them yourself ... right? Please!
My Favorites Fries - Large Homemade French Fries
Video Recipe - Everybody loves french fries, and I'm certainly no exception. This is probably one of the recipes I have spent the most time on perfecting through my cooking career. I have tried out in double- and triple-fried. Blanching at 84°C (183°F) for one hour followed by deep-frying at a relatively low temperature, cooling and refrying at a high temperature etc., Etc. In short, I have tried all the methods I've read about. Along the way I learned a lot about what is important for good fries and what is not. The four necessary main points I have written into my "kvalifood law of fries" which is in the notes of this recipe. but most importantly, I have developed a french fries recipe that suits my taste 100% and works every time. Yielding the best and most crisp fries at all possible.
Blender Mayo - Homemade Mayonnaise
Video Recipe - A little egg, oil, acid, a bowl, and a whisk, is really all you need. But although I have whipped mayonnaise from scratch more times than I care to remember, it can still fail for me. When I do it in a blender on the other hand, it almost always succeeds. The taste and quality is the same too.

There are few cakes that look as inviting as Macarons. Baby chocolate "burgers" with cream in the middle. In various colors even.
