Now if I were a proper blogger, I would have taken photos of Trina cooking and all the wonderful food. But unfortunately I was far too busy watching Trina and taking notes and tucking in, so I'm hoping Olive magazine won't mind me borrowing a few images from their November issue, which features some of Trina's recipes.
We started with the most amazing marinated salmon with fresh horseradish cream:
Followed by delicious fishcakes and dill potatoes:
Trina also cooked and served reindeer with anise! G was sure I wouldn't try it, but I did, and it was very tasty.
We finished with a fantastic apple trifle, the name of which, when translated literally from Danish, is Veiled Farm Girls. The layer of whipped cream must be the veil, but I'm not sure how the vanilla-infused applesauce and caramelized bread crumbs resemble farm girls! I'd love to know. We've already made it several times at home with great success.
The cookbook is gorgeous, and the recipes are very doable. The recipes are also organized by month, which I really like. And no, I didn't notice the naked man on the back cover until after I'd bought the book!
I'm already looking forward to Trina's Scandinavian baking class at Divertimenti in November, and I promise to take photos!
