Hello webwanderer, welcome to RecipeReminiscing. I’m TidiousTed and I run this blog. I’m not a chef or cook neither have I any formal training or education in catering or cooking. I’m just a graphic designer and web designer who likes to cook. A lot of this blog is based on my large collection of old cook books in Norwegian, Swedish, Danish and English. The rest of the post comes from old ads and roaming the net looking for interesting recipes. I’m interested in food history and soda and soft drink history too so there will be posts on this from time to time as well. I hope you’ll enjoy your stay here – Ted
A recipe for traditional Christmas cod found onmeny.no
Most Norwegians eat either pork ribs or lamb ribs for Christmas, but it should be no surprise that those of us who have the sea right outside the front door prefer fresh fish on Christmas Eve. Christmas cod is a traditional dish, and a Christmas dinner classic especially in southern part of Norway. If you can get hold of really fresh cod where you live and like fish, this dish is in no way a miss on the Christmas table.
I must admit that I’m stricktly a pork rib guy when it comes to Christmas, but I’ll gladly eat cod served like this any other time of the year

This is a delicious and tasty dessert you can safely serve your guests. Should you, like me, be somewhat unexcited over cognac, you can of course replace the cognac with a good dark rum. Or why not a decent port or a delicious homemade liqueur – Ted
