In Sweden you can taste the legendary Nobel ice cream – Italian Cuisine


Only at the bistro of the Nobel Museum in Stockholm you can taste the Nobel Ice Cream, inspired by an old tradition of the famous award

The legendary dessert that was served at the banquet of the Nobel Prize ceremony, nicknamed Nobel Ice Cream, has been recreated with mastery and is now available exclusively at the Nobel Bistro, the cafeteria of the Nobel Prize Museum in Stockholm. It is a delicious opportunity, in every sense, to relive in all respects the glamor of the Nobel Prize and to unleash the taste buds with a really special ice cream.

The tradition of Nobel Prize ice cream

In 1976, during the gala dinner for the Nobel Prize, a dessert was created for the occasion and dubbed the Nobel Ice Cream. It was served to the guests of every Noble Banquet until 1998, cheering for years the celebrations of all those who were awarded the prestigious award. The dessert, then, had a singular bomb shape and consisted of layers of ice cream and fruit sorbet, with combinations of flavors such as vanilla-raspberry and passion fruit-pineapple, all covered with cotton candy and accompanied by an edible decoration in the shape of "N". To make the moment of dessert even more spectacular, the ice creams were served at the tables by a parade of waiters on trays with attached streamers.

The Nobel Ice Cream today

Currently the famous ice cream is part of the Bistro Nobel menu, inside the Nobel Museum (Nobelmuseet) of Stockholm, inaugurated in 2001 on the occasion of the centenary of the Nobel Prize. The revisited and scenographic version, on sale only and exclusively here, is composed of one "Bomb" of vanilla ice cream, decorated with ice cream with camember or arctic raspberry. The sweet vanilla goes perfectly with the wild and delicious taste of wild berries, sweet but characterized by an astringent note. The Nobel Ice Cream is served, as usual, directly at the table, and in the dish, in addition to ice cream, there is a garnish of fresh fruit (strawberries, blueberries and alkekengi) or cotton candy, to which is added the true novelty of plate: one Alfred Nobel coin of chocolate, symbol of the organization of the Nobel Prize and of the museum itself.

Greek Chicken Thighs with Lemon, Capers, and Feta

Greek Chicken Thighs with Lemon, Capers, and Feta

by Pam on April 4, 2013

I found another Cooking Light recipe on My Recipes[1] that looked delicious and interesting. I adapted it quite a bit to suit my families tastes and it turned out excellent. Both of my kids gobbled up their chicken and my husband had seconds. The chicken was tender and the sauce helped make it juicy and flavorful. I loved the combination of garlic, capers, and lemon and thought the feta topped it off nicely. This recipe is a keeper and I will be making it again – SOON. I  served it with the Quinoa with Roasted Garlic, Spinach, Tomatoes, and Pine Nuts[2] for a healthy and delicious meal.

Flatten out the chicken thighs and remove any excess fat. Season both sides of the chicken thighs with sea salt, freshly cracked pepper, garlic powder, and dried oregano, to taste. Lightly dredge both sides of the chicken in the flour, set aside.

Heat the tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Once the pan is hot, place the chicken into the skillet and cook for 5 minutes; flip and cook for an additional 5 minutes. Remove from the skillet and place onto a plate loosely covered by a tin foil tent.

Add a teaspoon of more olive oil to the skillet then add the onion. Cook, stirring often, for 3 minutes; add the minced garlic and cook, stirring constantly  for 1 minute. Add the lemon juice and chicken broth then bring to a boil. Boil the sauce for 2 minutes then reduce to low; season the sauce with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste, then add the chicken thighs and their juices back to the pan along with the capers. Cook for another 7-10 minutes. Serve the chicken with some sauce spooned over the top followed by a sprinkling of feta cheese and fresh parsley. Serve immediately. Enjoy.
