The Colours of Autumn

Autumn has always been my favourite season. Not only because I was born in autumn, but I also love the atmosphere and scenery during the season. The weather gets crisp and I love feeling the gentle breeze on the streets. Everything gets a bit more atmospheric in autumn with red, yellow and golden leaves. It’s also the best season for spices (my love for chai latte), warm cider and barbecues.

Today I share with you a heart-warming cuisine which I think is best served in autumn, the season of slow-cooked stews ♥(˘⌣˘  ). It is one of the French classics, Beef Burgundy (Bœuf Bourguignon in French). This tranditional dish is bursting with flavour. I love the mellow scent of red wine floating in the air around my house – the best way to celebrate the coming of Autumn!

Hasselback Potato & Bacon Asparagus Rolls

This Swedish cuisine originated from Hasselbacken, the Stockholm restaurant where it was first served in the 18th century. Traditionally, the potatoes are sliced almost right through and then roasted until golden. Due to the special way of cutting, the potatoes are easier to cook through and the seasonings all submerge through the cracks. After roasting, the potatoes fan out and they are crisp on the outside and tender on the inside.
