About Me: Hi - I'm Carsten Wang Joergensen. I live in Denmark in the countryside. I'm a journalist and foodblogger and is fighting for everyone to have better food to eat. Preparing food and eating food is like sex - the more one strives the better it gets. We live such a short time and food takes up so much in our lives. Therefore, this part of life also have to be taken seriously. Everyone - rich or poor, can eat great delicious food every day even without a higher degree of kitchen education. It requires a little forethought and a bit of love for life and fresh products. But then you can give yourself and those you eat with, amazing experiences.
Lighthouse keeper cod – is Cod cooked in the oven with white wine, tomatos and onions - and a dinner my mother teaches my to cook many years ago. As a child, we ate fish 2-3 times a week because it was cheap food. That changed during the '70s and '80s and today's fish just as expensive or more expensive than a good steak of the finest meat. It's a shame, because many do not eat as much fish as they should. Not just because it is healthy, but because it tastes great. Take this dinner with cod. Cod is not cheap if you buy it in a fish shop. But if you catch the fish as a real angler - it is cheap food and also fun. If you know some anglers who catch cod, make an appointment with them to buy everything they catch. Many anglers eat - for reasons I do not understand - not even the fish they catch.
Is apple bacon on the table - there's fun around it. Apple Pork is one of the standard dishes on Christmas table. But, apple bacon is also an old Danish dinner, which was made when the money was small. But make no mistake - apple bacon gives you some of the finest taste of nature you can imagine. Good bacon, good wholesome apples and freshly baked Danish rye bread. Apple Pork should be on the top 10 in the Nordic cuisine. Made right - you get the taste of sour and sweet, salt and fat, crunchy and soft. The tickle all taste buds and gives a flashback in the history when you put it in your mouth. There is not much more to say - get started making apple bacon. Can I make a call - I do it anyway. Go guerrilla rampage and grow apple trees where they are not, like in public places, along roads and in parks. Let us give apples to the people - free apples. One must certainly not, but how many people would be happy if they could just pick all the apples they could eat. Apple bacon tastes as good cold as hot. Make plenty of it when you make it, then you will have food for a nice lunch or dinner the next day. Are you getting fat from eating pork apple? Yes, if you eat too much too often, but it is the rules of the game.
