Swedish grogg with vodka
Sinead's Janssen's temptation
The globe on a table...
Cooking something from the Congo...surprisingly unspicy food from that region
Squashing around the hob to make two different dishes...
My apfelstrudel which was pronounced delicious by a man from Berlin!
Alex Haw has been running his potluck supperclub Latitudinal Cuisine 'Collective Eating Through Time and Space'since last May; each week 15 people turn up, explore and cook dishes from a different latitude of the globe. This week we are tackling 15 degrees longitude which includes Graz in Austria, the Congo, Svalbard, Bari in Italy, Sweden, Libya...
Alex writes long fascinating but complicated emails describing each latitude or longitude and the areas we may cook from. His research is impressive... but I've got to admit, I don't understand the science bit!
This supperclub is different: you don't donate money, you take a dish. Guests were interesting...artists, musicians, filmmakers, travellers. Each week people volunteer to be the host.
A few of the dishes...
An Israeli brought a Swedish dish
An Englishwoman handed around Libyan savoury pastries
Alex cooked Svalbardian Poached Salmon with Anchovy Butter; this country, the most Northern, has the longest winter, it only becomes daylight on February 15th.
Alyssia brought two fabulous and niche wines from South Africa.
Pete made a Congolese dish with Kale, white fish and sweet potatoes.
I made apple strudel with filo pastry from Graz in Austria...technically it's a cheat to use filo but it worked well...I'm adding it to the menu.
We all drank grogg from Sweden...
