At the zoo

To do something fun with kids when Its poring rain outside and the Swedish summer is long gone to south of Europe is not easy, but we managed to catch one of the better days at the zoo and gave Bianca a new experience when it comes to wild animals and how to behave among these creatures.

I am always happy when kids get all exited and try to se as much as possible and ask all of these funny questions, great day.

Chateau Giscours older wines

Located in the Margaux appellation on the west banks of Bordeaux where exceptional terroir all the great qualities that are needed to produce world class wines Chateau Giscours are among the best wines made there of constant qualities year after year.

The Chateau is over 600 years old and have been thru many bad and also great times under many ownerships and are now maintained as the best in Bordeaux.

I love older wines and I am lucky to have a neighbour that showed up with two bottles the other day for our dinner, the 1974 and the 1978 that was both in great shape and amazingly well stored with all the fruit still there and nice polished tannins with a long lingering finish that stayed there for ever, what a treat this was.

Thanks Viveca.


From the land of Dracula

The land of the famous Vlad Tepes also more known as Count Dracula is a fantastic country with lovely and friendly people in the town of Arad in Romania where I spend the last weekend as a judge for a big cooking competition and food show with many contestants and a lot of visitors even with the temperature way above 40 degrees in the shade.

Iulia and Radu is pulling of great food shows all around in Romania with judges from Iceland, Greece, Germany, Serbia, Russia, Poland, Israel and a Swedish guy, how amazing this event was to meet up with all these lovely and talented people.

To judge a big event like this is not easy task and even harder when consider the heat outside for all of us.

This event have been running now for five years and getting bigger all the time thanks to the effort of the brave few who do their best to pull it off, great going guys and best of luck in the future.

My family on my dads side was originated from Romania and my dads name was Vladan! Where came that from? There must be some strange blood in my veins and not only wine J I guess that all the wine makes me transformed but I know better now.

From Mr Tepes with love and many more pictures on my Facebook.
