Authentic Italian sourdough foccacia
This is one of the simplest, yet most delicious breads you can possibly make. The end result is so incredible we often munch it just plain with no spread at all! Or, as a lunch or dinner, pair it with a variety of cured meats, cheeses and pestos.
Tagliatelle in ramson pesto, morel mushrooms and goat’s cheese

Our ultimate fresh pasta recipe
Fresh pasta is a staple in the Italian kitchen, and with good reason! It’s very quick and easy to make, it’s dirt cheap, filling, and incredibly delicious. It is also superior to anything you’ll ever find in the stores, and SO worth the 5 minutes it takes to make.
Viking pizza with sun chokes, ramson pesto and smoked goat’s cheese

Viking Falafels in barley & honey pita with burnt leek dip
What started out as one of Lea’s “what if” moments turned into a magnificent idea sparring session, and consequently this recipe. What IF the Vikings did indeed have falafels? What would it taste like?

This dip was developed as part of our Viking Falafels, but turned out so magnificent, we’ve started using it on our pizza and everywhere else! And yes – it’s basically our New Nordic take on Mutabal, so if you like that shit, you’re in for a real treat!
