I’m Silvia! I grew up in the U.S. but have always been a dual U.S. and Norwegian citizen, as my mother is Norwegian. My Norwegian upbringing is the reason I ended up moving to Norway in 2015, and it’s also the reason I love Scandinavian cuisine!
I was lucky to grow up with a mother who loves to cook, so I learned most of my kitchen skills from her. Since moving to Norway I’ve been trying all the Scandinavian recipes I can get my hands on. And now I’ve decided to share translations of the recipes, with my tweaks, in English.
I also run a travel blog, chronicling my travels through about 80 countries, and more recently my travels all around Norway. In Norway I’ve lived in Trondheim, Telemark, Helgeland, and Tromsø, and now I’ve settle down in Bergen. Maybe for forever? We’ll see.
And this is my dog Alfie:
We’ve had a lot of adventures together, but unfortunately he does not get to try any of my Scandinavian cooking.
