It's been a really stressful spring with a lot of things to do (work, school, moving to a new apartment, renovations etc.) I haven't been able to cook the way I'm used to, nor to come up with new recipes. But now I feel that I'm back on track. Imagine what a little vacation can do to you :) Have a lot of funny things a head of me, which I will let you know more about soon.
I met some new german friends this week and one of them told me about this great food experience he had last year when visiting Greece. Panfried feta cheese covered in sesame seeds and, after getting fried to perfection, the golden pieces of cheese were covered in honey. What? Yes! How?! These were my questions to him. He told me about the ingredients and I just had to give it a try. So today I made this delicious dish and it really turned out great! Thanks for sharing Jens. The cheese was served with a lovely salad with strawberries, cucumber and red onion. Give it a try! English and Swedish recipe down below.
