Sometimes my late-night Internet crawling leads me to a true gem of a blog, Green Kitchen Stories is totally one of them. I first came across GKS nearly two years ago and I don't think there has been a post I've not read since. In a world of fast-foods, meat and pre-packaged meals, coming across people who share similar views to me felt like coming home. As mentioned in my last Inspire Me post I always know I'm onto a good thing when I feel the need to stay up way into the night reading a blogs archives and the night I first came across GKS was no exception! Haha. I think they had just got home from travelling around the world with their daughter Elsa, and I was instantly drawn in by their gorgeous light-filled photos, healthy recipes and beautiful honest words. I stayed up reading all the guest posts they had lined up for their time away, discovering a few other amazing blogs along the way too, and then drooled over their photos of Vietnam, Thailand, China and California.
It's been a busy year for David and Luise as not only have they release their very own Green Kitchen Stories App but they have just handed in their manuscript for their first cookbook too! I was lucky enough to catch a spare second in David's day to answer a few questions below...
What's your favourite season?
Spring. The winter in Scandinavia is very long, cold and dark and every year something
special happens when everything starts to wake up, grow and shine.
Luise usually creates our savoury dishes and I do the sweet. If we only could pick one
to keep on doing, it would be savoury – there are too many cupcakes in the world already.
Who are your food heros? And which food bloggers inspire you?
hours of tennis, soccer and floor ball each week. And I'm working as a Art
Director for an interior magazine.
2-year education in nutritional therapy this winter. 5 times a week she is off
to do functional training, yoga and spinning. We never work out together, but
once in a while we challenge each other in the badminton field.
your cookbook over that past few months, that is due out in Spring 2013 (our autumn down under). What is one of your favourite recipes from the book? (And a
huge congrats by the way, I'm really excited to get my copy once it's out!)
copy of the book in our hands. It feels really exciting but also very scary at
the same time. One of our favourite recipes is actually an Indian dish,
Cauliflower & Apricot Dal – a perfect family dinner. But apart from that we
also have a lot of dishes which are inspired from our Scandinavian heritage, a
delicious cold broccoli & raisin salad for example.
