Game

Why:

The time has finally come to open the many jars of potted, pickled and soused berries, mushrooms, vegetables and fruits that we’ve been harvesting during the summer and autumn. A dear friend of mine has hunted a lot this autumn, so for me, the ultimate luxury is currently game. Something like deer or elk accompanied by pickled chanterelles and a great sauce, along with a glass of red from the Rhône Valley. It is the first time since 2007 that I won’t be working work with the traditional Christmas *julbord*, and this year I will try to escape it altogether.

How:

This December, DoMa [*editor’s note: Malmegård runs dining club DoMa out of her own home*] will focus on the seasonal, but will refrain from serving anything Christmassy. I personally feel that food is best enjoyed in the company of friends and family, so one can get to a place of total relaxation and enjoyment. That is the atmosphere I want my home restaurant DoMa to centre around. I want my guests to feel at home without having to lift a finger.

Where:

For some reason, it is very Swedish to seclude oneself in the wintertime. However, that is when I personally need the most energy, which I often get from surrounding myself with other people. So my tip is to set up a dining club of your own, and use social media as a tool to reach out. Keep it fun and unpretentious!

As told by Dorotea Malmegård, former head pastry chef at Operakällaren. Since February of this year, she runs DoMa, an at-home dining club, which is bookable through Facebook. She is also one the contenders in Kanal 5’s television show Dessertmästarna.
