A few days ago we organized a dinner with friends to try out Høkasse, the slowcooking appliance that doesn’t require energy at all while cooking. Slowcooking is a well-known cooking technique to chefs and gourmands, yet not commonly used by regular people. With our rushy lifestyle, how on earth can we have time to slowcook for 5-6 hours?? Surprisingly enough, it’s pretty quick to cook with the Høkasse… actually I think it’s quicker than regular cooking on the stove!
My friend V. and I decided to do our first experimento on a Sunday. In the morning we went to have breakfast together and grocery shopping. We got home aroud midday and we cut vegetables and prepared the meat for the Ossobuco recipe. We put the pot with meat and vegetables on the cookstove for only 10 minutes, unitl well heated up. Then we put it straight into the Høkasse, closed the lid and… Forgot about it! 🙂 We enjoyed our free time for the rest of the day until we enjoyed our delightful slowcooked meal in the evening!
You have to try out the experience yourself! You’ll be surprised by the lovely newly harvested taste of vegetables, meat and potatoes when cooked in the Høkasse…
If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you know I’m a swap market fan and here is why:
– You can find crazy things for free that seem to be made only for you (like the Italy T-shirt I’m wearing in the picture)
– You get to try different style of clothes you would have never bought otherwise
– You live the thrill of the treasure hunting… and it’s a lot of fun!

As part of my volunteering activities at oikos Copenhagen*, together with the EventLab team, I organized an event to raise awareness about sustainable fashion consumption. As our guest speakers, we had the pleasure to host Sarah Netter, CBS researcher at Minstra Future of Fashion, and Johanna Topoocoo, project manager at Danish Fashion Institute (DAFI). Following the learning through experience format, part of the event was a real swap market, where people could trade used clothes and accessories in good conditions for free.
My friend Julie Sunflower joined the event and she realized this footage for her videoblog. She got very nice stuff from the swap… I just realized I was too busy with my PR activities :D! Follow Julie on Instagram!
Thank you for sharing!

is organizing and hosting events. oikos-copenhagen.org.
Just got back home from my first swap market ever – called Byttemarked in Danish, whereas Loppemarked is translation for flea market. I was there with another eco-blogger friend of mine. It’s very nice going to this sort of places with a friend, as she can tell you straight away the “leave-it”or “take-it” word. We have different styles and fashion preferences, so it was perfect as long as we were looking for different stuff. But at some point we came across a famous eco-fashion brand T-shirt (A Question Of).
There the fight began.
Finally I got it :). Together with a few other nice clothes and accessories.
I have a rule though. Think three times before taking something home, even if it’s for free. Plus, think again two times after you’ve tried it on. Or you’ll end up with a lot of clothes in your wardrobe you don’t really want to wear. If eventually this happens, you know what you have to do…

On my way back to Italy, I had the pleasure to have a chat with Veronica Crespi, founder of Rewardrobe. Having started a couple of years ago, her fashion consultancy is surfing the trend of conscious fashion to bring fairness and sustainable style to the city’s wardrobes.
Veronica has grown up in Sardinia, but her passion for fashion and trend studies has found the way to London and now she is a remarkable contributor to the European eco-fashion scene as a consultant entrepeneur.

Appena prima di tornare in Italia, ho avuto il piacere di fare due chiacchiere con Veronica Crespi, la fondatrice di Rewardrobe. Veronica è nata in Sardegna, ha studiato a Bologna ma la sua passione per la moda e lo studio dei trend l’hanno portata ad approdare a Londra, dove due anni fa ha fondato la sua società di consulenza.
La missione di Rewardrobe è portare il concetto di slowfashion all’interno degli armadi della città, con assistenza personale allo shopping, la riscoperta dell’upcycling e l’aggiornamento costante degli ultimi trend europei di eco-fashion.
