The New Nordic x Rye London Supper
Last week we had the pleasure of welcoming Simon Bajada in the studio. Food writer and photographer extraordinaire, Simon hosted a beautiful hands on supper at the studio.
Bathed in candlelight, and one too many Aquavits, we were transported into a scandi wonderland.
Dish after dish, Simon taught us some tradiational scandinavian skills to take home with us - such as pickling, or making a Rye crumble!
