Jacobi on a Plate


Yellow coconut curry, green asparagus, seabass from Rotterdam, squid ink tapioca (representing activated carbon) and fish eggs (representing resin). This dish is a little engineered to fit in all the Jacobi factors. If you fancy some comfort food, stick with the curry and seabass.


Coconut oil
1 sp mustard seeds
20 curry leaves
1 red pepper (add to taste)
2 cloves of garlic
1 onion
2 cm of ginger
Lemongrass (my kids don’t like the strong acidity of Tamarind so I deviated)
1 sp turmeric
400 ml coconut milk

1. Blend the onion, garlic, pepper, and the soft part of the lemongrass to a paste

2. Heat the coconut oil in a frying pan, add the mustard seeds and the curry leaves

3. After 20 seconds add the paste and fry for a few minutes

4. Add the turmeric and fry for a minute

5. Add the coconut milk and you will end up with a Jacobi orange curry

6. Set aside

Squid Ink Tapioca

250 gr tapioca beads
5 g squid ink

1. Cook the tapioca in water for 20–25 minutes till they are transparent.

2. Rinse off the excess starch with cold water and transfer to a bowl

3. Add the squid ink and mix until the mixturelooks like 4 mm activated carbon granulate

4. Put grease free paper on a baking tray and spread the tapioca to a thin layer. Dry at 80°C for four hours (turn after three hours)

5. Cut the dried tapioca into strips (or tear into pieces if you want more rustic structure)

6. Deep fry the strips in vegetable oil at 190°C. You need 5–10 seconds only and will see the tapioca crisp up (like krupuk). Put on paper to remove excess oil. Let cool.


1. Put a grill pan on high heat

2. Break the woody ends of the asparagus

3. Add some oil to the asparagus (NOT to the pan)

4. Grill the asparagus for 2 minutes till they have nice grill marks


1. Heat oil (or butter) in a frying pan

2. Fry one seabass fillet per person on the skin

3. When the skin is crisp put in oven at 160°C

4. till the temperature of the fish reaches 60°C.


1. Put the asparagus at the bottom of a plate.

2. Put the seabass on top

3. Put the tapioca on top

4. Put the curry around the asparagus

5. Top the tapioca of with the salmon eggs
(representing resins)

6. Serve with basmati rice

Curry and wine are a tough combination. If you make the dish spicy then I suggest serving a Gewürztraminer from Elzas in France. If you make it milder I would go for a Loire Win. I chose a white Reuilly. It is local wine from the area close to our Vierzon site.

Coconut Burger


Niklas Alveskog enjoying a coconut hamburger together with his daughter Jenny and her boyfriend Frej.

We wanted to make a coconut burger and started googling but couldn't find any recipes. Fun, we thought, and started experimenting. The end result was great and if you are vegan, you can replace the egg with an alternative binder so that you get a vegan coconut burger.

400 grams of sweet potatoes
1 yellow onion
1 clove of garlic
2 dl oatmeal
1 egg
1 cup coconut
1/2 cup coconut milk
1 tbsp coriander
2 ml white pepper
2 ml salt


1. Peel the sweet potato, grate finely and squeeze out as much liquid as you can with your hands
2. Peel and grate both onions
3. Put all the ingredients in a bowl and mix
4. Let the batter rest for about 15 minutes before you start shaping them into burgers
5. Fry in coconut fat, olive oil or butter

Server with

Burger buns, cheddar cheese, pickled cucumber, sliced tomato, mustard or anything else you enjoy with your burger.
