A day for foodies and other lovers of life!

This Saturday we spent with other food and wine loving friends. We were chefs, food bloggers, crasy foodies, food stylists, photographers, authors, sommeliers, youtubers, (and others), who met up to fill a whole day with just food, wine and nerdy things that has to do with just those two things. We learned how to "style" food for pictures, cook absurdly nice desserts (and learning all the tricks to make it look advanced when its not), tried some extremely nice cavas and cooked more strange food. All this thanks to my friends who run the food blogg "glimten i grytan". Me and Karin did a Cava TV episode about cava and swedish Semlor a while back). Here below you can see how the day developed in pictures. IMG_2740

After this we went home and slept like loggs! But the day was amazing and we met so many new friends that have the same interests as we do. Hopfully we will all keep in contact through social media. Thanks to everyone who particiapted and a million thanks to Karin and Ulrik who organised it all. AND a big thank you to all the producers who made the fantastic cavatasting possible!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Gramona finally to the swedish monopoly!

Happy happy news for all us cava lovers living in Sweden! The 7th of November we will be able to buy Gramona Imperial 2008, through the Swedish monopoly. It will be an “exclusive launch”, which means that you will only be able to buy it from the shelf at a selected few stores (Like Regeringsgatan/Passagen). But don’t worry if you don’t live in central Stockholm, because you can of course order it very easily to any systembolag store you want. As I have understood the price will bGimperiale 199 SEK, which I think is a very good price indeed. The ordering number if you can’t go to the “exclusive stores”, is 90451. Gramona Imperial is a splendid cava Gran Reserva brut, made from Xarel-lo 50%, Macabeo 40% and Chardonnay 10%, with a nice complexity of ripe fruits, nuts and bread. The bubbles are small and well integrated. If you have not tried it you should.

 

lustroThe good news does not stop there my friends! Also III Lustros 2006 will be available one way or the other from 1st December on. How the availability will be is a bit uncertain at the moment, but if not in an easier way you will at least be able to get it through “Private import” that is very easy. Keep an eye out for more information. I’ll let you know as soon as I can.

 

In the mean time I’ll leave you with some pictures from some of our visits at the Gramona winery.
