My clients Niels & Grete who are organic egg producers have learned me a lot about organic poultry farming, chickens’ wellbeing and needs and funny moods. My fridge always contains lots of their eggs and I make all kinds of Eggs-dishes – but I would love to add the above inspiration: CHICKEN and EGG by Janice Cole to my cook book self. I don’t know if we ever get our own chickens in our garden (read: need more time!), but if you are planing on having chickens this book is also very helpful. In Denmark we have Signe Wenneberg – she is an fantastic inspiration + expert on gardening and how to get started with poultry farming at home. Find her books at her website (all in Danish).
Yes, please, add more Feast and veggie colors into our kitchen… I especially find it hard to be inspired during the dark winter time. We do not have that many fresh, exotic vegetables here in Denmark during the wintertime (I like to eat and shop local + organic). I think FEAST – generous vegetarian meals for any eater and every appetite by Sarah Copeland will add some new + colorful energy to my vegetarian winter kitchen.
The last book: Waffles – sweet, savory, simple – by Tara Duggan. Well, I might getting old. I’m not and has never been a great fan of aebleskiver and now is the time get it OUT. Aebleskiver is a small fried round sweet “dumpling” cake-thing we Danes eat from now until Christmas. Again and again during December. With sucker, jam… sweet with sweet on – I’m not a fan! (Sorry mom!). But I love crepes (with basic toppings: lemon juice + sucker) and I have a thing for waffles with fresh berries or a splash of simple dark, bitter, thick chocolate sauce. I think it is about time to add a new tool in my kitchen: a waffel maker (Santa: this one or this one please!). And the above book!
