Everyday Magic on a Plate

Strawberry Magic – if you come from Denmark a strawberry is not just a strawberry….. We have so many special memories attached to summer and the sweet, sweet taste of Danish strawberries, traditionally served with cream, but equally grand on their own… and the very first tiny new potatoes dug straight from the soil…..a quick scrub and into the pot of boiling water, add a pinch of salt….truly a dish for kings! Oh yes and then there’s the amazing white asparagus…. they are undeniably and forever attached to SUMMER in my mind.  Someone once told me that the taste is so exquisite due to our climate and the very slow ripening process.

Something else that is also quite special in summertime here, is the small road stalls you will find in the countryside, where you can buy local produce and you leave money in a small box, and often even take back your own change. They will flourish at the roadsides until the last apple is picked in the fall. That is everyday magic to me………
