Food Style, Ikea’s Vision

  • Pin it

I rarely get to share my favorite recipes with you (not that I wouldn’t, it’s just that when I get to sit and talk with you, I’d much rather do it in a convivial, entertaining manner, than from a cooking perspective. When you’d like me to change that, do tell me, it’ll always be a pleasure to talk to you, no matter the topic and the approach!). So what was I saying? oh, yes – though I rarely get to share my recipes with you, whenever I get struck by the cooking lightning, I feel the urge to tell you all about it!

So this time, the cooking lightning struck a while back and I haven’t had the chance to say anything (bebe and all). Ikea’s cookbook? Have you seen it? Heard of it? It’s ah-mazing! Really is! Not because it turns your kitchen upside down. Oh no! it’s the perspective! The book is called Hembakat är Bäst and its cover looks like this: (click through for images with some of the recipes, you’ll be surprised!)

So I’ll start with the good ol’ Cinnamon rolls or buns. This is the end product:

And this, my daaahlings, is what you’ll need to do the Cinnamon Rolls, in Ikea’s perspective:

What do you think? Want more? Well, here’s the Black Forest Cake:

And this is what you need to do it:

Next, you’ll find associated images with Vanilla Horns and the necessary ingredients, Gingerbread and what you need to do it, plus the irresistible Almond Shells and what it takes to bake them. Isn’t it just wonderful? It’s not just about the end product, it’s about perspective! What’s your favorite cookbook? (via)

Rather nifty and yummy but does one need and Allen Key to do these recipes? ; )

Hmmm, I want a piece of the Black Forest Cake since I’m drinking a nice coffee at the moment.

My fave cookbook? LOL, that’s the free magazine of my supermarket Albert Heyn; “Allerhande”. It’s online too. :)
