#Goodnews – Get Over Missing Art Fair Junk Food With IKEA`S Meatballs
While you dream of Art Basel sausages, we have got you covered
Art Stuff 01 May 2020

In addition to Billy book shelves or rugs by Virgil Abloh, IKEA is also beloved for the Swedish meatballs served in their cafés.

What a great coincidence that, while we are missing art fair junk food and cheap wine and chips at gallery openings, IKEA recently published a homemade meatball recipe for their devoted fans to try in quarantine.

Although it is not the same iconic meatball recipe that is used in their stores, it does employ an intricate cream sauce which IKEA management says is a worthy alternative to the original.

“We know that some people might be missing our meatballs, which is why we’ve released an at-home alternative which, using easily accessible ingredients, will help those looking for some inspiration in the kitchen,” said IKEA Food Manager Lorena Lourido in a statement.

The meatballs themselves calls for 500 grams (2 cups) of beef mince (or beef substitute), 250 grams (1 cup) of pork mince (or pork substitute), 1 onion, 1 clove of garlic, 1 egg, 100 grams (1/2 cup) of breadcrumbs, and 5 tablespoons of whole milk (or milk substitute).

The sauce, meanwhile, calls for oil, butter, plain flour, vegetable stock, beef stock, thick double cream, soy sauce, and Dijon mustard.

What are fair food do you particularly miss? For us? Well, the overpriced sausages at Art Basel`s courtyard might be among them…
