RC chocolat

I’ve told you about this place in Sigtuna some times before, but repetition is the mother of knowledge as far as I know. RC chocolat really knows the deal. They are amazing at chocolate and their pastry are a real show for the eye as well as heaven for your taste buds. If you ever happen to pay a visit to Stockholm, don’t be afraid to leave the busy city for some hours and take a trip to Sigtuna, it’s a beautiful little town and you might get your best “fika” at this place!

Jag har berättat om detta ställe i Sigtuna många gånger tidigare, men repetition är kunskapens moder såvitt jag vet. RC chocolat kan verkligen sin grej. De är fantastiska på choklad och deras bakverk är verkligen en syn för ögat liksom himmeln för dina smaklökar. Om ni har vägarna förbi Stockholm kan jag inte nog rekommendera er att ta en trip till Sigtuna, den härliga lilla byn men kanske Sveriges bästa fika!

Kivik – Skåne – Österlen

Hi all! A little summary of my last visit to Blekinge and my parents. Since my boyfriend hasn’t been to the southern parts of Sweden that much (before he met me) we decided to make a trip to Skåne to the eastern parts which is called Österlen. In Österlen you can find Swedens most famous producer of cider and fruit drinks – Kiviks musteri. It’s a family own company that has enormous orchards all around Kivik. Amazing to see and their products are delicious!

Hej på er! Förra helgen spenderade vi i Blekinge med mina föräldrar. Eftersom sambon inte har spenderat så mycket tid i södra Sverige så passade vi på att ta en tur till Skåne, Kivik och Österlen. Kiviks musteri har nog ingen missat med tanke på att deras produkter numera finns i vartenda dagligvarubutik, men det är ändå något speciellt att vara på plats.

Even though we didn’t get the best weather we had a nice trip and I think the pictures pretty much tells you about the wet and windy day we had. But anyway a good trip that I recommend you to do if you ever visit Sweden and the southern parts.

Även om vi inte hade det mest fantastiska vädret så hade vi en riktigt bra utflykt. Men jag gissar att ni kan se på bilderna hur busigt väder vi hade.

A store in perfect condition! Everything is nicely displayed and there is a lot of news every year.

En butik i otroligt fint skick! Allting exponeras otroligt fint och så finns det alltid massa spännande nyheter.

My absolute favorit. A sweet appeljuice with lots of vanilla and cinnamon, taste pretty much like and apple cake. Lovely to drink hot after a cold day outside.

Min absoluta favorit. En söt äppeljuice med smak av vanilj och kanel. Den smakar ganska mycket som en äppelpaj och är helt underbar att dricka varm efter en kall dag utomhus.

After our stop at the store we continued our journey to Kivik village. And the beach!

Efter vårt stopp i butiken så fortsatte vi vår resa ner till Kivik by. Och så spanade vi såklart in stranden!

After our stop in Kivik we continued with some real tourist attractions. At first, a stop at Knäbäckshusen.

Efter vårt stop i Kivik fortsatte vi vår resa med riktiga turistattraktioner. Först, ett stop vid Knäbäckshusen.

Next stop – stormy sea. Nästa stopp – stormigt hav.

Our last stop – Ale stenar. A very old heritage from our ancients. Placed on the edge of a hill, right beside the sea – beautiful.

Vårt sista stop – Ale stenar. Ett gammalt kulturarv från våra förfäder, placerat högt upp på en brant över havet – otroligt vackert.

Harrod’s

Since I’m a food geek in every kind of way, I find it extremely amusing to spend some time at Harrod’s food halls. I like to eat, taste and cook food, but I also like to walk around in food stores just to get inspiration, since my dream is to run a own department store one day.

I think Harrod’s is a nice place (besides all the tourists) to get inspired. Everything is clean, nicely placed out, and the products are of good quality. You really feel an eager to buy, and that is exactly the feeling a food store should communicate. The sad thing though, is that I can’t buy the perishables since i live in Sweden. If we ever stay in an apartment (and not hotel room) I will definitely buy myself all the ingredients to supper at this nice store (and of course from Borough market). Well, that will be another time!

Another thing I love about Harrod’s is there fruits and vegetables, so nicely arranged and so beautiful.

And this nice desk, where you could order your own salad!

And who doesn’t love their basement!? I mean, look at al the nice bottles of wines. You can even make a paus down here, grab some snacks and a glas of wine! I think that will be a mission on my “to do list” next time I visit London (togheter with a afternoon tea, which I incredible haven’t experienced a single time in this city! Bad tourist…)

I could have taken so many more pictures, but then I would bore you guys to death, so this will do for this time. Tomorrow there will be a post about my favorite breakfast in London, stay tuned!
