Green Kitchen Stories

This one is a family affair. David is a magazine art director from Sweden, Luise is from Denmark and studying to be a nutritional therapist, and Elsa is their adorable daughter. From their Stockholm-based kitchen, the family cooks and eats healthy and simple vegetarian food with natural ingredients, whole grains, good fats, fruits and vegetables. They’ve published several cookbooks in many languages that combine their favourite recipes, and they also document their travels.

Therese Elstad is based in Oslo and uses her blog as a way to express her love for the Nordic region and its food culture.

Call Me Cupcake

Linda of Call Me Cupcake started blogging in 2009 with no intention of becoming a food blogger. In fact, she says she rarely even baked at the time. However, cupcakes were huge in Sweden then, and Linda was happy to join in on the trend. Through the years, her recipes have evolved dramatically, and there’s an understated, dark and haunting quality to her photos that contradicts the bright desserts and helps set this blog apart from others.
