Charlie's rye bread

For 2 loaves, you will need:
800g rye flour
1 portion (from your last baking) sourdough starter*
4 tsp sea salt
600 g cracked rye seeds
1,3 dl water
1 tbsp honey
10 g yeast

* If this is the first time you've baked rye bread, you're unlikely to have a portion of a sourdough starter from 'your last baking'. Here is Aarstiderne's recipe for a sourdough starter:
Mix 1½ dl yoghurt with 100g rye flour and a pinch of salt and leave it in a warm place for 1-2 days. It should start to smell sour and bubble slightly. This is the starter.

To make the bread:
Stir the yeast into the water in a large bowl. Add the sourdough starter and the other ingredients. The consistency should be like solid, thick porridge. Set aside a lump of this mixture to be the starter for the next time you bake and pour the rest of the dough into two large bread tins. Cover the tins with a clean cloth and leave the dough to rise for 4-6 hours. Bake at 160 ºC for 2 hours.

Durum wheat bread with pumpkinseeds

For 2 loaves, you will need:

100 g pumpkin seeds
400 g sifted spelt flour
20 g salt
1 l water
500 g durum wheat
10 g yeast

Stir the yeast into the water. Add the durum flour and stir well. Stir in the salt and half of the sifted spelt flour. Add the pumpkinseeds and then the rest of the flour. Leave the dough to rise, covered in the fridge overnight. The following day, take the dough out of the fridge a couple of hours before baking. Place a baking sheet or stone in the oven and set it to 250 degrees. Dust your hands and a work surface well with flour and turn the dough out onto the dusted surface. Divide it into 2 equal loves with a knife (do not knock the dough back). Place the loaves onto the pre-heated baking sheet or stone and bake them for 10 minutes at 250 degrees. Then lower the oven temperature to 200 degrees and bake for a further 25-30 minutes, until they sound hollow when you tap the bottom. Place the loaves on a rack to cool slightly before slicing.

Slow rise spelt bread

For 2 loaves, you will need:

500 g unsifted spelt flour
2 tbsp salt
500 g flour (hvedemel)
8 dl water
2 tbsp honey
10 g yeast

Dissolve the yeast in the water and stir in the spelt flour, honey and salt. Mix in the hvedemel to make a batter - it shouldn't be solid but rather the consistency of porridge. Pour the batter into 2 greased bread tins. Each should be half full leaving space for the dough to rise. Place the tins in the fridge for 12-24 hours. Remove the tins from the fridge and bake at 200 degrees for about 45 minutes. Take the loaves out of the tins and tap them on the bottom - they should sound hollow. Let the bread cool slightly before slicing.

Tip - you can add different nuts or seeds to the dough. Spices and herbs also taste good in this bread.

To make your own stock:

Take a half chicken, 200g carrots, 1-2 bay leaves, 4-6 peppercorns and 1 litre water. Divide the chicken into thighs and breast. Put them in a pot with the carrots, bay leaves and peppercorns.

Add the chicken leg bones back to the pan and cook for a further 1-2 hours. Chill and drain then place the stock in the fridge until needed.

To make the curry:

Rinse the rice in cold water and put it in 8 cups boiling water with salt. Cool for approx. 15 mins and let it sit, covered, for 5 mins.

Place the lettuce on a platter and drizzle with olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper just before serving.

Lightly fried minute steak in flat bread with roasted eggplant, garlic and sweet and sour cherry tomatoes

Cut the minute steaks into strips, grate the zest and juice of lemon over the meat and toss with chopped garlic and sea salt. Set the meat to one side to marinate for approx. 15 minutes. Meanwhile cut the aubergine into four slices lengthwise, chop the onion into thin slices, peel the cherry tomatoes and coarsely chop the wild garlic. Rinse, drain and chop some lettuce leaves. Roast aubergine in plenty of oil in a hot pan. Add the onions when the aubergine has gotten a little color - it takes probably 7-8 minutes. Season with salt and place aubergine on a plate lined with kitchen paper. Warm up a little oil and fry the tomatoes until they are just hot. Combine the vinegar and honey and let it melt on the tomatoes. Season with salt, sprinkle with chopped garlic and pour over the aubergines. Fry the marinated meat for 1 minute in a little oil, season with salt and maybe a little chili and pour into a bowl. Clean the pan with paper and warm the flatbread until they are toasted a little. Place some meat, an aubergine quarter, honey, tomatoes and lettuce in a flatbread and roll it together. Tip: if you have a little yogurt, this is nice added as a dressing.

Creamy Pearl Barley Risotto and pan fried Duck

You will need:

1/2 head of lettuce
200g Jerusalem Artichokes
1 container cream chese
300g soaked Pearl Barley
2 clementines
1/2 bottle crushed tomatoes
1-2 red onions
4 confit duck legs
1/2 bunch parsley
1 tray of Oyster mushrooms
3 cloves of garlic
salt and pepper

Pre-heat oven to 200° C

Rinse/scrub and chop the Jerusalem artichokes into small cubes. Chop garlic and cut mushrooms into smaller pieces - discard the root of the mushroom. Slice onions.

Pearl Barley Risotto
Rinse the pearl barley in cold water. Saute onion, garlic and Jerusalem artichokes in olive oil briefly. They must not take color. Add the barley and cook together. Add 4 dl of water and the bottle of crushed tomatoes and let boil for 10-15 minutes, covered.  *This is when you should start on the duck.
Add a little more water if necessary. When the pearl barley has boiled for 10-15 minutes, add 2-3 tablespoons creme cheese and chopped parsley, mix and season with salt and pepper.

Add the duck and a couple of whole cloves of garlic to a cold pan, raise the heat and allow to cook until golden - 3-4 minutes. If it looks too dry, add a bit of oil. Add the mushrooms and cook in the duck fat. Cook for 1 minute, turn the duck, add 2 dl water, so there is some liquid surrounding the mushrooms and place the pan in the oven for about 5 minutes. If your pan is not ovenproof, move to ovenproof dish and place in oven.

Green salad with clementines
Wash and tear lettuce into smaller pieces. Peel and cube (small) one of the clementines. Finely slice one red onion. Squeeze the juice of the other clementine and mix with a little oil, salt, pepper and perhaps a little vinegar. Toss salad before serving.

Serve the duck with the mushrooms, the creamy risotto and the crisp green salad.
