Hello and welcome to Nordic Kitchen Stories. I’m Louise and I live in Buckinghamshire with my husband and our little dachshund Dora. My deep-seated passion and appreciation for good food can be attributed to my Swedish mother. Growing up, every meal was a testament to fresh ingredients, with fruit and vegetables harvested from our garden or sourced from the local greengrocer. Fish from the market and meat from the nearby butchers were staples in our kitchen. I can honestly say I was always keen to try new foods and flavours.
Each summer my brother and I so looked forward to spending time with our grandparents and extended family and friends in Stockholm. Our days were filled with boundless outdoor adventures, from cycling to swimming and fishing in the tranquil countryside and the mesmerising archipelago. The excitement of smoking the day’s catch for dinner was an unforgettable tradition. My grandmother (Mormor) possessed remarkable baking skills, and I cherished the afternoons we spent together crafting biscuits, cinnamon buns, and bread.
One day, I stumbled upon the idea of starting a blog. Ever since I can remember, I’ve been interested in food. Cooking, for me, is a great joy. Fortunately, my passion for food has also become my profession as a food creator. Throughout the years, I have been an integral part of the food industry, working as a caterer and private chef. Currently, I find immense satisfaction in recipe development and creating celebration cakes and sourdough bread. Recently, I have also discovered a new passion for food styling and photography. Every image featured on this website and Instagram is my own creation, unless specified otherwise.
“I hope Nordic Kitchen Stories blog inspires you to try new flavour combinations and ingredients. Here, you’ll uncover a treasure trove of family recipes, intermingled with my personal creations, made with a touch of love and a pinch of nostalgia. I am happiest in my kitchen, baking, cooking and devising new recipes for my family and friends”.
