Easter in #Copenhagen

20170415_124941

We spent Easter Holiday in Copenhagen, at the great hotel 71 Nyhavn, an old warehouse located right by the canal in Nyhavn.

Cold and rainy but cozy anyway. Hot chocolate at Hotel Chocolat kept us warm and delicious smørrebrød, schnapps and beer kept us saturated.

We defined the rain and did some sightseeing as well, for example Den lille havfrue, The Round Tower and  of course Strøget.

#Raspberry & Chocolate Mousse

 

This dessert we had on New Year’s Eve with a combined mousse on chocolate and raspberry was was both quick, easy and so tasty!:

Chocolate Mousse

100 g dark chocolate

2½ cups whipping cream

2 egg yolks

½ cup granulated sugar

Melt chocolate in the microwave or over a water bath. Whip the cream lightly. Whip egg yolks and sugar until white and fluffy. Add the eggs and sugar under vigorous stirring in the hot melted chocolate. Fold the cream into the chocolate mixture, stirring constantly. Divide the mousse in glasses. Let the mousse solidify in the refrigerator, preferably in the serving glasses.

Raspberry Mousse

5 cups raspberries

1 cup sugar jelly

1/2 tbsp vanilla sugar

3 cups whipping cream

Boil the raspberries to puree. Add the jelly sugar and let boil for a few seconds. Add the vanilla sugar. Whip the cream. Be sure to whisk it easy. When the raspberry gelatin mixture begins to solidify, turn in the whipped cream. Divide the mousse in the glasses on top of the chocolate mousse. 

Garnish with fresh raspberries, grated chocolate and lemon balm. Let it solidify in the refrigerator for a while before serving.

#Bremen, Germany

Our last vacation days we spent in Bremen. Since we had a few days left before it was time going back to work, we took the car and went down to Germany.

Good food, great beer, and it’s always fun to discover a new city.

And we got both the beer and the schnitzel. We even tried the domestic currywurst one day. The city also offered beautiful architecture, an atmospheric old quarter with narrow streets and of course the famous statue of the Bremen Town Musicians.
