Early on Saturday morning I got ready to go to Gothenburg. It wasn’t even light outside when I got into the cab. After a nap on the plane I arrived before midday in Sweden and had a great weekend with my old friends Linus and Emma.
We started the weekend with a lunhc on the town, just ran into the first decent place to escape the terrential rain that followed me from Britain to Gothenburg. We also tried the best coffee in town at Da Matteo, well technically Emma did. Linus and I had hot chocolate which was lovely. I also met up for lunch with fellow food blogger Åsa at this place on Monday and really enjoyed my large sandwich on sourdough with turkey and porcini creme.
In the evening we had dinner at Familjen, followed by homemade strawberry daiquiris back in Linus’ flat. We then headed out to a bar and saw several thousand people running the Midnight Run through the town in the dark and the rain.
On Sunday we had a large brunch and then I met another food blogger, Charlotta and later enjoyed tacos back at Linus’ flat before Emma went back to Malmö. Thank you so much everyone for a GREAT weekend. You’re the best!
Strawberry daiquiris, 6 drinks
ca 400 g frozen strawberries
250 ml water
250 ml sugar
Start with the syrup, ahead of time. Mix water and sugar in a sauce pan and bring to the boil so the sugar melts. Leave to cool completely. Pour strawberries and the syrup into the blender and mix until smooth. Add rum after taste. Serve in glasses on a stem and perhaps decorate with one or two mint leaves. Enjoy!
