I absolute love mornings in Manly! I love to see the sun rise while being at the beach watching all the people dive in to the water for a morning swim or run along the beach. I love picking up a cup of freshly roasted coffee, sipping it while drying off from a swim in the sun. I love to catch up with my friends there and start the day together with them in the sun. I miss you all badly now being back in Oslo. I do like my mornings here as well, but they just start so much later, and no one is up early to play. And when the sun is finally up, it’s time to get going with the daily chores, so not much time to slowly see the day start. Or maybe I should just get up earlier!
Happy Halloween! A great excuse to put pumpkin in pancakes, pies, gnocchi, salads, soups and in bread! Photos are from last year trip to California. Luckily Norway is growing nice and sweet pumpkins now. Actually every year the production is almost doubled, when a few years back it was quite hard to find pumpkins in the shops. Today they are everywhere!
Try these sweet pancakes from Elise. I promise a good start to your day!

Thanks everyone for making the dinner in Ålesund so special and memorable.
I had some amazing days in Ålesund during the Food Festival in August arranging the first Mellom Bakkar og Berg Pop-Up dinner. I was lucky to meet so many fantastic people behind the local produce. Thank you all for contributing. All recipes from the evening can now be found here. You can also read more about the event here.
Nils at Dybvik to pick up the Gran Reserva Klippfisk for the dinner. Max is picking herbs on the beach.
Nils Henning Nesje, Mat med Hjerte helped us locate some of the 120 small local producers. Here we’re visiting Øyvind at Haslebakken Gard.
All the guests left the dinner with a small goodie bag to take home. Janne og Nan-Hi from Mandel og Melis made the most beautiful and delicate Krumkaker for everyone and Jacu shared some of their freshly roasted coffee beans. A small porcelain cup and fish oil from Omeganor was also part of the gift.
The simplicity and elegance of Ross Gardam´s Oak pendant light in solid FSC timber caught my eye instantly. Available in one size and three finishes of Natural, Black and Lime in Australian made ECO Timber.
Cool project from Foodstudio!

The Taste of Ålesund
Set amongst our beautiful mountains and fjords, our farmers and producers grow and create unique flavours and ingredients. Surrounded by a very special atmosphere, we invite you to an evening in the historical Jervellhuset in Ålesund to showcase the best of what’s local.
We want to take you on a new and unique taste experience. Talented chefs from Restaurant MÅLTID in Kristiansand, Max Hansen, Kasper Nicolajsen and Nicolai Pedersen, will combine forces to create a feast for our intimate gathering. Together with Nils Henning Nesje, local food enthusiast and cook, our team will travel around Sunnmøre to harvest for the evening’s dinner.
We have hunted down local cheeses, the best meat, the fresh fish we are so proud of, and the sunny eggs and delicious fresh cut vegetables in a bid to showcase the best of Ålesund and surrounding areas.
In collaboration with Matmerk, Den Norske Matfestivalen and Innovation Norway, we will serve you exciting flavours from our local produce. Our glasses will be filled by local beer and drinks.
We look forward to celebrating an Ålesundsk feast with you.
The Pop-Up restaurant is only open two days during the Norwegian Food Festival.
