Sam of Diagrams loves kladdkaka!

Sam Genders of Diagrams
I’ve been busy opening up my little cafe Llama Lloyd so I’ve not taken the time to publish this little food interview, I was also thinking I would try to make the soup, I’ve bought Marmite but that’s as long as I’ve gotten. But I guess it’s time to try another soup at the cafe anyways?

Hi Sam, what do you feel like eating right now?

Actually I’ve just eaten! I had porridge with dates, prunes, raisins, almonds and pumpkin and sunflower seeds and a smoothie made with blueberries, tropical fruit and dairy free yoghurt. It’s probably the most healthy breakfast I’ve eaten in weeks! I do love an English fry up but I spent a lovely Christmas and New Year in Sweden eating and drinking the finest that your good country has to offer and I’m in serious need of a January health kick.

What breakfast suits a Gentle Morning Song?

Well, that song is all about the very, very early hours of the morning so perhaps instead of breakfast it would have to be a midnight feast. You’d need to throw a sheet over a few chairs to make a den in the front room and then huddle underneath there with a loved one and eat comfort food… Cheese sandwiches, crisps, dips, maybe some herring and potatoes roasted with garlic, lemon and rosemary. Then finish off with a little fika… Hot coffee or hot chocolate and kladdkaka.

What’s your favorite fruit?


Do you have any food on your rider?

Just a few minimal heathy snacks. Pitta bread, hummus, fruit and salad.

French Onion Soup

Do you have a recipe you’d like to share with us? Maybe a cake or a soup?

Vegetarian French Onion Soup.

I think this (or something very similar) came from Cranks recipe book and was passed on to me by my friend Sylvia – it’s very easy and wonderfully warming. The croutons and grated mature cheddar are integral to the dish. I fry my croutons in butter with a little swedish herb salt (Trocomare) until crispy.


Large onion x2
Oil 3 x tbsp (45ml)
Veg stock 1 + 1/2 pints. I prefer Vecon stock.
Mixed herbs 1 tsp (or whatever nice dried herbs you have to hand)
Yeast extract 1 tsp (5ml) I use Marmite.
Salt and Pepper to taste
Croutons (the recipe recommends wholemeal which is tasty but I find any bread works okay – I especially like to use white sourdough)
Cheddar cheese, grated 4oz/100g.


Finely slice the onions
Heat the oil in a saucepan and sauté the onions until golden brown. This bit can take a while, 15 mins or longer so this is a good time to put some music on.
Add the remaining ingredients.
Bring to boil.
Reduce heat and simmer for 15mins.
Serve with croutons and cheese sprinkled on top.
Serves 4 (or 2 if you have 2 portions each!) Freezes well so sometimes I’ll triple the ingredients and make a bigger batch.
