Starting today, the Normann Copenhagen flagship store turns into a gallery for an exhibition cookbook featuring 12 bright summer recipes displayed as floor-to-ceiling styled food images. Pieces from the Normann Copenhagen Kitchen Collection, some of which were used in the images, will also from part of the display and visitors will be able to take postcards of the recipes home with them.
The idea behind the exhibition cookbook is to shine a spotlight on the Normann Copenhagen range of kitchen accessories and to inspire a creative approach to serving food. The recipes-simple and colourful- are reflective of the Normann Copenhagen brand, and were put together by the company’s retail director and connoisseur, Peter Elmegaard.
The exhibition and food styling is the work of brand manager and designer Britt Bonnesen, who chose fresh and bright colours as backgrounds for the symmetrically organized ingredients; it reminds us a little of Things Organized Neatly.
Food, colour and styling, we think it’s a perfect combination! And if these gorgeous images have you itching to step into the kitchen, here’s one of the recipes for you try out at home.
Poppy Seed Pastries
175g Butter (at room temperature)
1 tsp Salt
1 large tbsp Sugar
Egg whites (for basting )
Poppy seeds (according to taste)
Mix the butter and flour in a bowl and add the sugar and salt. Add the yeast to the lukewarm milk, stir until dissolved and mix in the flour mixture. Knead the dough thoroughly and the roll out until it measures about 25x50cm. Spread a bit of butter of the rolled dough. Fold 1/3 of the dough over the middle and then the final 1/3 over that to create a 50cm long roll in three layers. Turn the roll over and leave to rise for an hour Baste with the egg whites and sprinkle with poppy seeds. Divide into pieces of your preferred size. Bake for 15-17min at 200 degrees celsius. (Makes 10-12 pieces)
