Our Story

Who's behind Soil to Stove?

Put simply, we are a community of writers who share a love of good quality, healthy, tasty food, sustainably farmed in accordance with true ecological principles. When we saw the boxes being delivered to our Danish neighbours, curiosity got the better of us, and that's how we discovered Aarstiderne.

The delivery of crates full of seasonal and fresh organic produce was one of Denmark's best kept secrets and so we decided to create this blog to open the world of Aarstiderne to English speakers too.

In a nutshell...

Neighbourhood - Østerbro
Latte or Cappuccino? - Cappuccino
Sweet or savoury? - the first taste of the day decides
Favourite season - winter for the snow, spring for the promise of sunshine, summer for the seaside and autumn for its falling leaves
iPod's most played - Adele
Favourite movie - Gone with the Wind for the greatest heroine of all time, Scarlett O'Hara, her spiritedness and her courage founded on the simple belief that 'tomorrow is another day'.
Whisk me away to ... a (sunny and warm) desert island
Denmark's hidden gem is ... its dramatic weather - there's nothing like watching a summer storm come in across the water
Last meal would have to be ... al fresco, with something cooked on a grill and ending with ice cream
I love Aarstiderne for ... introducing me to local produce
