It’s All About Frequency
Inspired by the frequencies of nature, sound, and vision, my friend Dorien has created a series of music videos that interact with the woods. For one of her videos, she made an animation of a wild deer, which she projected sky-high on real trees in the forest.
Seeing this video for the first time, it reminded me of the time my friend and I encountered a young deer while we were walking through the woods before sunrise. It was such a peaceful moment, and it is precisely this feeling of being in harmony with nature which she captures so well in her project.
Because my friend will move to Sweden in a month, I decided to make a Swedish-inspired pie, with a moose instead of a deer. It has a healthy wholewheat crust, and a blueberry filling without refined sweeteners, so it is as natural as a pie can get!
Blueberry Coconut Bundt Cake
'Tis the season to be blue. For berries, that is, not for me. On second thoughts, I do scoff them by the handful, so maybe I will end up looking like Violet Beauregarde. I mean, I already suffer from a mild chewing gum addiction and we’ve got the same hairstyle…
So yes, the cake. It’s a wholewheat coconut cake in which I just put loads of berries. We already filled nearly every jam jar in our pantry so what choice did I have?

Blueberry Buttermilk Scones
As the wasteland flowers
Old cars and rubbish flourish
With blackberries and red berries
- Patrick Wolf, Thickets
This is what I did with the berries I gathered yesterday: I put them in a pan and added a nectarine, raspberries, white currants and blueberries, and jam sugar.
After boiling it down, I put the jam into these appropriate German jars.
I’m sure this super-fruity jam will taste lovely on some scones.
