Louise lives in Marlow, Buckinghamshire with her husband and two dogs. She credits her Swedish mother for her passion and love for good food. Growing up, all meals were freshly prepared, fruit and vegetables were home-grown or bought from the local greengrocer. Louise recalls her mother making a weekly visit to the local fish market to buy the freshest fish.
Every summer Louise and her brother were packed off to stay with their grandparents in Stockholm to spend time with uncles, aunts and cousins. Endless hours were spent outdoors cycling, swimming and fishing in the archipelago. After a days fishing they smoked their catch to eat for supper. Her grandmother (Mormor) was an incredible baker and she spent many an afternoon baking biscuits, cinnamon buns and bread with her. Louise cherishes these recipes and will pass them on to her children.
So one day Louise came upon the idea of writing a blog, ever since she can remember Louise has been interested in food, cooking for her is a great joy. Luckily, her passion for food has also been her profession; a food creator. Louise has worked in the food industry as a caterer and private chef for many years. Louise now recipe develops along with food styling and photography, she has found a new passion. All images on her website and instagram are taken by her, unless stated otherwise.
Louise also writes a food column for Scan Magazine showcasing Scandinavian brands, travel and lifestyle.
“I hope Nordic Kitchen stories blog inspires you to try new flavour combinations and ingredients. Here you’ll find a collection of family recipes along with my own, 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”.
