It’s Barbecue Time!

Fire up the grill, decorate the terrace, mow the lawn and fill up the kiddie pool, because barbecue season just started!

In the North we cannot wait for warmer summer nights, so when the sun finally comes out and makes the night a little warmer, we stay outside a little longer. A perfect opportunity to enjoy a tasty barbecue with family and friends. Before you put the steak on the grill and enjoy a sip of your cold beer, make sure you have what you need to season your food and keep the buzzing bees at arms length.

Whether it’s salt or pepper, use Craft to add some flavor to the meat on the grill

We all know that a perfectly grilled piece of meat beats most other summer foods so make your guests crown you as the unofficial barbecue master. Make sure to grind some fresh black pepper on top of the steak when it is simmering to enhance the grill flavor. It’s hard to enjoy a barbecue when the insects start buzzing around your food. Keep the mosquitoes, wasps and bees away from your grill and guests by always having a flyswatter close by and ready at hand.

A perfectly grilled steak can’t make an entire barbecue. Fresh ingredients and small side dishes add an extra flavor for a tasty combination. Peel some carrots, radishes, and beetroots and mix them together with strawberries, apples, and fresh feta cheese for a fresh and delicious salty and sweet salad to be enjoyed in rich volume.

When darkness falls and the food is gone continue the cozy vibe for you and your guests. Light up the garden with candlelight for a warm and lovely evening, a perfect way to end a successful night.

Trouble sleeping?

Ingmar's bedside tableThe best ideas comes at night and for those of you who, like me suffers from insomnia every now and then, there might be some  comfort in knowing that one of the greatest film instuctors ever, probably did too. All of the furniture from Ingmar Bergman’s house will be sold at an auction at Bukowski’s later in september according to his last wish.  I was amazed to find this little nightstand amogst all the designer furniture and I imagen Ingmar waking up with his head full of ideas and with no time to find a piece of paper, he scribbeled his thoughts down directly on his bedsidetable!

Can you draw?

familia-the-pot

Very few adults claim they can draw. In fact we often hear the “but I can´t draw” – excuse.  In our world drawing has nothing to do with being able to make a beautiful photo realistic replication of something. It has to do with communication. That is also why we love Ole Jensen´s drawings. They are not perfect – but they tell us the essence of his vision.

So next time someone asks you to draw – just do it – you may be starting something that turns into an award winning product.
