Right now I’m home in Sweden at my parents place and today we celebrated Mother’s Day. They live in a region called Värmland, also were I grew up, and I love coming back here. The deep forest and clean air make me so happy and peaceful!
Today we went to Borgvik for a 3 course lunch at restaurant Kungskvarnen.

I think I chose the winning concept:

Fillet of deer marinated in port wine with sweet potato crisps and Jerusalem artichoke purée. Luckily it tasted better than it looks! I believe they can work on the presentation.. My dad thought it looked like the pig’s ears our dog eat.

My main course was butter fried cod with potato cake, seafood&saffron sauce and sugar peas.

Option 2 as a starter was lime preserved char with mango salsa

And option 2 as a main was duck breast marinated in red wine with root vegetables gratin, cognac & lingonberry sauce and parmesan asparagus. 

What combination would you prefer?

No option for dessert – Strawberry gateau for everyone!!

Afterwards we went to gallery Sliperiet, only a couple of minutes away from the restaurant. Among others, David LaChapelle and Lovisa Burfitt were exhibiting on the ground floor and glassworks from Kosta Boda were shown on the first floor.

The location also has hotel rooms and good opportunities for weddings and conferences. The food was great, local and organic and I’d love to come back for their a la carte menu!

 

Happy Mothers Day, Mom! ❤
