I know, it's been a long time. I guess I needed a break to sort out what I was doing next and once I got that going, I am back on a roll! Ready for a ride? There will be a lot to show and tell.
I stayed very busy with the Good Sweets line. We moved into a new place, there was a lot and still is to do. It definitely doesn't happen overnight! We are truly a team now :) The grand opening will be this fall, until then you can still stop by and see us at Teslina 7, Zagreb.
A month ago I went on a business trip to Stockholm and it was the first time for me to visit a Scandinavian country. What a place! I was beyond impressed. The way people (especially men!) dressed (super old school), spoke perfect english, very polite and everything around was very clean and neat.
Now, onto the food scene!
I was lucky with beautiful weather! (it gets dark at 10:30 pm)
" Wild chocolate" with cocoa beans growing in wilderness. Stunning flavor.
My favorite coffee place "Johan & Nyström"
Isn't it lovely?
Love the leather aprons
Another great coffee escape - Drop Coffee
Licorice's big in Sweden. It is EVERYWHERE. If I were only a fan.
Butter cookie filled with pastry cream
Check out Xoko
BEAutiful indoor market. Definitely one worth remembering.
Fantastic bread and danishes.
Gotta get myself a pastry memory!
Esperanto - 1 Michelin
Very interesting flavors. Lots of Swedish and Asian inspired dishes. I had the Wagyu beef tasting that is from a local farm. As you can see, even Wagyu sushi! (not a fan). One thing I found very interesting was miso in a few pastry components. Salty and sweet. Loved the pairing.
Overall; Amazing service, good atmosphere, average food.
Pretty ice cream quenelle though :)
