Lunch Date

Photographer Marte Marie Forsberg takes over Tasting Table's Instagram feed

Norwegian photographer Marte Marie Forsberg lives in a 200-year-old cottage in Dorset, England (complete with sheep, chickens and geese). So, naturally, we tasked her with taking over our Instagram feed for a day last week.

What unfolded was a lovely selection of her favorite lunch dishes, from gnocchi with brown butter to fresh oysters with bubbly. In case you missed it, check out her takeover and follow Tasting Table on Instagram for our favorite recipes, restaurants, chefs and more.

Hi, I'm @marte_marie_forsberg and I'm excited to be taking over the @tastingtable account today, sharing some of my favorite fresh lunch dishes with you. This tasty little pizza is the kind you can whip together in no time with some cold leftover potatoes, olives, olive oil and your favorite cheese. For a bit of crunch, add a dash of pancetta or smoked bacon. #tastingtabletakeover

It always amazes me how delicious a little bit of browned butter, crisp sage and a handful of gnocchi is. A heartwarming and tasty lunch dish that transports the taste buds to sunny Italy even if it's a gray winter's day where I (@marte_marie_forsberg) live here in the English countryside. #tastingtabletakeover

When it comes to food, I like it simple and fresh, that wee nibble in the middle of the day that is supposed to carry me through till dinner. So when the winter winds are howling outside, nothing beats a few rosemary and garlic marinated lamb chops with a glass of Chardonnay. @marte_marie_forsberg #tastingtabletakeover

Being from Norway, fish soup was a staple on the menus at home growing up. A handful of mixed fish, a few prawns, a bit of cream and some chile goes a long way. It really can be that easy. @marte_marie_forsberg #tastingtabletakeover

On random days of the month, this is really all you need: a lemon wedge, a dull knife and a few fresh oysters and a little fizz, because you're worth it. Thanks for letting me share some of my favorite lunch dishes with you today. @marte_marie_forsberg #tastingtabletakeover
