A couple of weeks ago we met up with Erika Jureskog, and how much fun we had! Erika participated in Sweden’s master chef 2018, and today we got try her amazing food. Erika Jureskog is often known as Johan Jureskog’s little sister. Johan Jureskog is a famous chef here in Sweden and he has been cooking food for the Olympics and he also had his own show on TV, called “The worlds best burgers”. I think that Erika deserves her own name, and that she is so much more than her big brother’s little sister. Erika is filled with energy, happy and funny, and – not to talk about it, good in the kitchen. You go girl!
About the food
Erika made us a really good sandwich, it was a sour milk bread which she topped off with a lovely home-made cured salmon, horseradish and a confit egg yolk. This sandwich is super tasty, and it’s so fresh. I definitely recommend you try this at home. Why not serve it during a weekend breakfast with someone you enjoy spending time with? Here is a link to the recipe.
Port wine cupcakes
She also made us some delicious chocolate cupcakes. Port wine is added to both the cupcake itself but also to the syrup you decorate the cupcake with. And that syrup is really tasty! Why not spice up your old chocolate cupcakes with some port wine next time? You’ll find that recipe further down in this post.

In January I will go and travel again. This time I’ll move to Sydney, and my plan is to continue to work as a Revit Drafter (structural engineer) and also to continue to blog here of course. I have no idea who the next person I’m going to visit will be, but time will tell.
