  • This morning, when out for a walk with Mr Whiskey, I let my hair down and let it dance wild in the warm Spring wind. Nobody was out yet, and the vast green fields were empty. Mr Whiskey chased a few pheasants, dug little holes to his hearts content and generally ran around with an unmatched energy. Back home we took it slow, brewed a few soothing batches of ginger and lemon tea with honey, and baked bread. We opened the door wide to the garden and just sat there in the doorway soaking up on the sunny weather. Some days I simply need to take it slow, read books and bake bread to the beat of my own heart...  <a  href=/tag/takingitslow>#takingitslow</a>

  • Last year for Easter we piled our dear friends into a big car and nestled ourselves in between wellies, weekenders and bottles of fizz.
We had found this darling old cottage in Suffolk. We spent days cooking together, wanders along the nearby wild and wonderful coastline, and popped the fizz, all tucked up around a roaring fireplace at night. The cottage had a low ceiling dating back to the sixteen hundreds, and the most beautiful checkered windows. I fell in love with the whole thing, I think we all did. And if I could've taken one thing with me home it would have been the windows and their darling little terra-cotta pots filled to the brim with freshly sprung Spring flowers... Thank you so much for all your lovely ideas for my new green allotment! I cannot wait to get planting, and put a few of these in my windowsill.  <a  href=/tag/weekendwithfriends>#weekendwithfriends</a>

  • With fog and rain on the horizon I sat down at my desk overlooking the rooftops of my wee countryside town. There's an available space at the allotment just up the street from me, and I began drawing up my future vegetable patch. Two years ago, I promised myself to get my hands dirty and get digging on my very own kitchen garden that could keep me well stocked at least during the summer. While the lovely husband and wife team behind <a href=/user/foxandfavour/1>@foxandfavour</a> filmed my latest online Food and lifestyle photography class for <a href=/user/skillshare/1>@skillshare</a> two years ago, we visited <a href=/user/hevdawg/1>@hevdawg</a> in her green and ever so charming allotment. Her cake baking is magical, and so of course so is here garden! It had a wonky little shed just big enough for a little camp stovetop where she brewed cups of strong coffee, as we filmed her green patch with possible the most stunning views in all of Shaftesbury. As the sun set, we sat down and warmed our hands on her ever so tasty butternut squash and chorizo stew that had been bubbling away in the background. It may be a bit late in the season, but at least I have a patch of my own now, and I'm eager to get planting! Artichokes are a must, and so are carrots, beetroot, tomatoes and parsnips, my list is long, and it's hard to choose just a few. If you had to narrow it down to three, what would your top three must haves in your vegetable garden be?  <a  href=/tag/Springgarden>#Springgarden</a>  <a  href=/tag/myallotment>#myallotment</a>  <a  href=/tag/skillshare>#skillshare</a>

    Christine Belinda:
    Kale, arugula, and tomatoes. But glad I'm not limited to three!


    Anna | 21 | video editor:
    Tomatoes are a must! You should give cherry tomatoes a go, they're easy to grow and have a large yield. Also any type of green pea is great. Oh! and lettuce! Lots and lots of lettuce for summer salads 😊Have fun gardening!

  • The magnolia trees are eagerly budding these days. Arching their baby flowers towards the warm sun. It's Spring in the air, the wind is mild and ballet flats are a must. My little countryside town is blossoming. The local florist <a href=/user/tedmartinflowers/1>@tedmartinflowers</a> has the most beautiful flowers spilling into the streets, the local deli <a href=/user/tisbury_deli/1>@tisbury_deli</a> has the last few ingredients for my cherry and chocolate cake with red wine glacing I'm making this afternoon, and <a href=/user/beckfordbottles/1>@beckfordbottles</a> has the much needed wine. However, when all fails, and all I want is a bit of crisp fried fish, every town has their Fish and Chips shop here in England, and so does mine too. I'd love to perfect a good fish and chips recipe myself. But thus far, it's all hanging on getting the right crisp yet tasty batter. Do you make your own fish and chips, or do you too indulge in a naughty treat from the shop down the street or local pub? I hear the <a href=/user/thecompasses/1>@thecompasses</a> do a very good one.   <a  href=/tag/myenglishcountryside>#myenglishcountryside</a> myenglishcountryside

  • His love for scotch has slowly introduced me to a world of smokey, malty and oaky, that was previously quite unfamiliar terrain to me. You have to taste this, he exclaimes excitedly as he comes home with a new bottle of scotch. He likes his straight up, and I like mine on the rocks, either way, scotch is a magical world of flavors and aromas not to be missed, both in drinks and in cooking. Try adding it to a simple caramel frosting to go with your chocolate cake, or whip it in with your cream as a side for poached pears. It never fails to add those needed extra notes of magic.  <a  href=/tag/LoveScotch>#LoveScotch</a>  <a  href=/tag/ad>#ad</a>

  • With grey skies and loud rain tapping on the roof, it's time for lunch, the simple, yet ever so tasty kind. Take one happy free range local chicken, butter and season. Fill it with herbs, onions and lemon wedges, and stuff the skin with more butter and a very generous helping of freshly sliced truffles. Dice seasonal vegetables and fruits, and coat them in olive oil before seasoning. Throw it all in a large baking dish and put it in the oven to roast. Make sure you baste the chicken with the succulent juice gathering at the bottom of the dish regularly. Pop your favorite Pinot Noir, and that's it, lunch is served!  <a  href=/tag/raincallsforcomfortfood>#raincallsforcomfortfood</a>  <a  href=/tag/truffleroastchicken>#truffleroastchicken</a>

  • Wedging himself in anywhere he can, to get closer to the action, Mr Whiskey is almost as excited as I am for our upcoming Flower, Food and Photography retreat here in the English countryside. My mother is flying in on Sunday to begin preparing, fine tuning old family recipes for our picnic by the river, and for her baking session, while making a few more aprons. She makes them from vintage Swedish linen that she finds in little brocantes and markets on her road trips to Stockholm with dad. They are a beautiful handmade part of our retreat. It always makes me so happy to be using the very same B&B for our participants during their stay, that I've used ever since I arrived in the area about four years ago. The Retreat B&B in Shaftesbury, just a stone throw from the famous Gold Hill, where Sheena and Bernard have created a lovely and warm atmosphere, that makes it feel like a home away from home. Lately there has been a warm spring wind in the air, and wild garlic is covering the grounds around the farm we'll be based during the retreat, and I simply cannot wait to share this beautiful area with our participants. Even the local butcher is excited, providing us with his special honey, that I not only use in my ginger and lemon tea, but as a face mask too! Works wonders both ways;)  <a  href=/tag/mmforsbergworkshop>#mmforsbergworkshop</a>

  • On Fridays, before embarking on a good food journey in the kitchen, that eventually results in supper for friends, I oftentimes take a seat by my desk to plan the meal ahead with my favorite single malt scotch in hand.  I'm rather spontaneous by nature and shun routine, yet this weekly predictable tradition, runs like a golden heartbeat through these fridays, and is a rhythm and routine I treasure.  <a  href=/tag/ad>#ad</a>  <a  href=/tag/LoveScotch>#LoveScotch</a>

  • Yesterday a friend of mine and I went walking by the river with our dogs. The sun was setting and there was a slight chill in the air. Mr Whiskey swam like a fish, followed by his friend Gus, a big teddy bear of a dog, the size of a small pony. We took a seat on the bench and watched them swim. People may come and go in our lives, but some friendships stay, and become rocks in which we build our lives on. And perhaps that's true for dogs too. Mr Whiskey is possible the cheekiest monkey out there, but all snuggled up by my feet in the kitchen as I cook, or sitting next to me on a green slope, contemplating life's big questions after a long walk in the woods, his company makes me feel connected. The current political situation around the world seems to sway in directions that aim to disconnect us. To promote a feeling of us against them, of outsiders and insiders. This divide is a harmful in so many ways, and I hope that we don't buy into this way of thinking. We need each other, we need diversity, we need strangers that become friends, and we need to feel connected...  <a  href=/tag/thursdaymusingscontinues>#thursdaymusingscontinues</a>  <a  href=/tag/throwbacktolastsummer>#throwbacktolastsummer</a>  <a  href=/tag/whiskeyandi>#whiskeyandi</a>

  • I opened the rooftop window this morning. The many old slated rooftops of my little town seemed asleep, engulfed in a light haze. Above them all in the distance, the rolling green hills created gentle curves on the horizon line, and this favored Alice in Wonderland quote came to mind from when Alice come to a crossroad in the woods and sees a cat in the tree.
Cat: Where are you going?
Alice: Which way should I go?
Cat: That depends on where you are going.
Alice: I don’t know.
Cat: Then it doesn’t matter which way you go.  <a  href=/tag/thursdaymusings>#thursdaymusings</a>  <a  href=/tag/aliceinwonderland>#aliceinwonderland</a>

I'm craving Rome today, and it hit me like a fist in the stomach. I studied art history there through the University of Oslo, which is situated right above charming Trastevere, and next to the American Institute in Rome, which is where Elisabeth Minchilli was today. She's a Rome based author and writer, and has quite the beautiful repertoire of inspiring books under her belt. She's also behind the EAT ITALY apps, that I oftentimes use when I travel in Italy. Luckily we've just bought tickets to Rome and will be there the first week in April! Do you sometimes miss a city or place so much it hurts?

  • Mr Whiskey is all snuggled up by my feet, and I'm scribbling down the menu for the upcoming Flower, Food and Photography retreat in just over two weeks. My mother suggested we bake her salmon specialty, and both I and the local fish monger agreed. He'll source the salmon, and I'll pick the necessary herbs. On the phone with my mother yesterday, we talked recipes. She had been baking one of my favorite cakes, adjusting her recipe to accommodate the upcoming retreat group, and I told her wild garlic was now in season. You must make your pesto, she eagerly suggested, and I said I would, and that I'd pickle the budding flowers for her to take home, and perhaps serve with her baked salmon? It will be a lovely addition, she coaxed. The kettle whistled just as we hung up the phone, so I steeped dried chamomile flowers, and stirred in some creamy honey from the local butcher's personal supply. Planning, creating and anticipating is such an exciting part of running these retreats and workshops.  <a  href=/tag/mmforsbergworkshop>#mmforsbergworkshop</a>  <a  href=/tag/afternoontea>#afternoontea</a>

She had been baking one of my favorite cakes, adjusting her recipe to accommodate the upcoming retreat group, and I told her wild garlic was now in season. You must make your pesto, she eagerly suggested, and I said I would, and that I'd pickle the budding flowers for her to take home, and perhaps serve with her baked salmon? It will be a lovely addition, she coaxed. The kettle whistled just as we hung up the phone, so I steeped dried chamomile flowers, and stirred in some creamy honey from the local butcher's personal supply. Planning, creating and anticipating is such an exciting part of running these retreats and workshops. #mmforsbergworkshop #afternoontea

  • Today we brunched, if that's even a word. Skipped lunch, went for a walk, and had a lazy Sunday on a Monday. For early dinner we munched on warm Arancini, before retreating to the sofa, where I leafed through my recent cookbook purchases with eagerness. Nothing hot off of the press, just good old cookbooks where the recipe is a simple  paragraph beginning with fetching one of your backyard chickens, and ends in a casserole ready to serve up, in three simple lines... must remember to simplify, I tell Mr Whiskey, who nods back, before taking yet another afternoon snooze next to me as I read and take notes. These old cookbooks are such treasures, filled to the brim with preserved knowledge of how to prepare simple yet delicious meals without leaving a single part of the vegetable, chicken or bread gone stale out. In a sea of ever inspiring, and ever so beautiful cookery books, I find myself returning time and time again, to my little library of old simple regional books on food, where culture and history is carefully preserved between each yellowed page, and worn covers...  <a  href=/tag/whenmondaybecomessunday>#whenmondaybecomessunday</a>  <a  href=/tag/cookbookgalore>#cookbookgalore</a>

  • If it feels like Spring, it is Spring, at least in my book, so bare legs, dresses and ballet flats it is! In just two weeks we have our first English countryside retreat of the season. A two day Flower, Food and Photography retreat at the beautiful Ashley Wood Farm here in Tisbury, with morning yoga sessions with the wonderfully talented, and ever so calming <a href=/user/nikkilewisyoga/1>@nikkilewisyoga</a> . The darling <a href=/user/aesmeflowers/1>@aesmeflowers</a> will lead us in flower arranging and put their beautiful talent to use in creating a lovely Spring table for lunch. We'll go for wanders, picnics along the river, Scandinavian baking session with my darling mother, and dine at wonky old pubs in the evening. We'll work on visual storytelling, styling and photography, in addition to editing and post production. We have opened up for one more spot should you want to join us on the 30th of March till the 1st of April. For more info, click on the link in my profile.  <a  href=/tag/mmforsbergworkshop>#mmforsbergworkshop</a> (Photo of Gold Hill in Shaftesbury)  <a  href=/tag/goldhill>#goldhill</a>

    You're so brave and ultimately so English, haha: Ballet flats in March! I'm not yet accustomed enough to the English climate to wear bare legs and feet. 😬😂

  • Like a magical blanket, it covered the surrounding rolling hills with its faint veil. Green seemed greener and the fog seemed to muffle every sound. The trees still missing their leaves, some sported ever so shy little buds, and underneath their black branch crowns, spring flowers adorned their feet buried in the ground. Sun, wind, rain and fog, I love the English countryside dressed up in either...  <a  href=/tag/myenglishcountryside>#myenglishcountryside</a>

  • We've been planning little adventures to sprinkle like fairy dust throughout the year. Wee everyday treats and bigger excursion, that will color the year ahead. I almost love the planning phase as much as the actual journey or destination. The fun of looking at maps, train tables and which dress to bring, even if it's just a little break in the sun at the local bear garden. As the sun proudly dominated the rather blue sky today, it all felt ever so promising. Adventures ahead, I told myself and smiled...  <a  href=/tag/2017theyearofadventures>#2017theyearofadventures</a>  <a  href=/tag/slowingdownandgearingup>#slowingdownandgearingup</a>

  • The sun is shining, and I'm eagerly waiting for the temperatures to rise so I can begin pottering in my small gardens. So between cups of tea, final edits on my book, I scribble down ideas for what to plant in my wee walled garden right outside my kitchen door. Lavender, sage and rosemary for sure, and thyme. But perhaps I need a plant or two of chocolate mint and a few edible flowers to toss in salads and on top of soups as well... What other herbs would you suggest for my garden?  <a  href=/tag/myenglishcountryside>#myenglishcountryside</a>  <a  href=/tag/herbsgalore>#herbsgalore</a>

    Hi @marte_marie_forsberg. I am really a big fan of your photography and u think u have great ideas of taking photos using natural lights and objects . What application do you use or u want to suggest in order to give natural filter to any photos ? What camera do u use ? Thank you 😊


    marte_marie_forsberg:
    @meettawhid_ Thank you, what a kind thing to say. I use the @vsco app for editing my iPhone photos and oftentimes the same app for my Canon 5D Mark II images. I try to make image look as close to what I'd like it to be in camera, and do very little editing. Sharpening and a wee vignette is oftentimes it for me:)

This morning, when out for a walk with Mr Whiskey, I let my hair down and let it dance wild in the warm Spring wind. Nobody was out yet, and the vast green fields were empty. Mr Whiskey chased a few pheasants, dug little holes to his hearts content and generally ran around with an unmatched energy. Back home we took it slow, brewed a few soothing batches of ginger and lemon tea with honey, and baked bread. We opened the door wide to the garden and just sat there in the doorway soaking up on the sunny weather. Some days I simply need to take it slow, read books and bake bread to the beat of my own heart... #takingitslow
