My name is Gunilla Blixt and I am a chef and journalist.
I work as a food tour guide, but also with creating, writing and, most of all, editing recipes.
I have been working as a freelance writer since 1994 and I still am today.
I edit recipes for the Swedish food magazine Gourmet and I create new recipes and help food producers with sample cooking and recipe writing.

Newest recipe in Enlish: »Fish soup like Kajsa’s

About the food blog
This blog was opened when my children left home and wanted all mum’s recipes in one place. ”Mum-start a food blog!”
The blog is about my everyday life in my own kitchen, not the professional cooking. The photos are mine and not styled.
My catchwords in cooking are
- Home made “Hemlagat”
- Healthy “Hälsosamt”
- Sustainable “Resursklokt”
Ester Matilda was my cooking teacher
I learnt cooking from my grandmother Ester Matilda.

Swedish recipes in the US
I also contribute with recipes now and then in the biggest American Swedish newspaper, Nordstjernan.
When I guide guests in culinary Stockholm, I get the opportunity to meet people from all over the word, and talk about food.
I am well educated in Swedish and Nordic cooking, and I am happy to share my knowledge gathered during a long time as afood writer. Every day working as a food guide I also learn about cooking in the rest of the world.
