Subtropical climat :)

Its very interesting to have this climate, i was talking to Keiko about my desire of red beats i need it for a lot of Swedish dishes and she said . I might have a friend that groves them. And yes she had… And the size well look for your self.


And i also had the luck to get in contact with a person who pick some berries that i dont know the name of, but they taste lovely and  I am gonna make some ice cream of them. And imagine my surprised face when he also gave me some Chanterelles :0  he said he has a secret spot in the mountain.
I had some time to fix in my own garden so i ordered material for a greenhouse and i hope i will have time tomorrow and put it up. My asparagus has grown 20 cm in 2 weeks… And then my latest happiness is my 3 passion fruits, they will be ready in 43 days says my neighbor and i trust him 🙂


Its all about networking

Tomorrow i will serve cod from Hokkaido 🙂  I am so happy to get my hands on some cold water fish. And even more happy that Keiko manage to find Herring for me also Hokkaido. So tomorrow almost all my seats are already reserved.

Yesterday i spend the day with two wonderful people Miho and Kiku san. We went to the ocean to pick mozuku an kind of seaweed its season for that now. Usually Japanese people make a kind of salad marinated with vinegar, but i am gonna try to put it in bread.

Ohh and one more thing a wild cat decided to have kittens in my house of happiness, so also the animals feel the good spirit in this house 🙂

Sold out

That is the theme for today, so many people that wanted to sit on my 6 chairs. We had a bizzi day but so fun and i feel so welcome to Kumejima. Loads of people came by with a gift for my grand opening. Thank you everyone for all the flowers and gifts.


And all my 250 cookies were sold out , my cinnamon bun were sold out so tonight i am in baking mode. But tomorrow we are ready again lets hope the success will continue.


Final countdown

Today it was a day of great success, i had the inspector for my license to serve food in my restaurant here and …
It was a pleasure to show her all the stuff we fixed, a big tnx to Keiko and Miho. And the only thing i needed to add was and outside thermometer for my fridge then i’m good to go. She was super impressed over my HACCP 🙂
And as an extra bonus Miho arrived today and had so nice gifts with her as i will use for Småkaka.
So summan av kardemumman is that i will have a pre opening on friday, and an official on Tuesday next week.
I’m so happy all the hours i put in is paying off and now we will see how the nordic food will turn out in Kumejima


Its a rainy day today so i decided to start working with my Haccp documents. Its a bit different in Japan comparing to Eu i actually dont need it 🙂 But… i was thinking if i have it they would be happy and the inspector will be pleased that i am serious. So 5 hrs later and 44 pages later here it is.  And in Swedish so Miho you will be the translator if they want to know what it it says.


After that i needed some inspiration so i did a deep dive in this lovely book, and i have goat milk in coming maybe … then it will be chevre in my kitchen.
