Salmon Casserole / Lax I Gryta

A recipe from “Kunglig Spis” (Royal Stove) by Håkan Håkansson published by LTs Förlag in 1982

lax i gryta_post
Håkan Håkanson_imgDuring the 2nd World War, Håkan Håkansson survived passing German  mines and submarines, came to London and started as a chef at the Swedish Embassy. There he met Prince Bertil, who was naval attaché, and a long culinary collaboration began.

After the war, Håkan Håkansson followed the Prince back home and became court cook, first at the Royal Palace, then at the Prince’s Villa Solbacka at Djurgården. Håkan Håkansson also followed the Prince on numerous trips down to Villa Mirage on the Riviera.

Most of the recipes in “Kunglig Spis” are derived from Håkan Håkansson and Prince Bertil’s joint experimentation in the kitchen. And the result is a treasure trove for anyone who likes to cook and eat good food!

And from now on my visitors can eat food right from the “royal stove” through these recipes – Ted

Medieval Monday – Beef & Bacon Pie / Biff & Bacon Pai

Medieval Monday copy066_beef and bacon pie_post
At The Inn At The Crossroad they write: The sweetness of this medieval pie comes from added fruit and honey. As the pie bakes, the fruit melts, giving a lovely counter-taste to the tart vinegar and salty bacon. The fruit flavour fades into the background and what remains is a sweet, rich meat pie with an easy medley of flavours.

Original Recipe:
To make Pyes. Pyes of mutton or beif must be fyne mynced & seasoned with pepper and salte and a lytel saffron to colour it, suet or marrow a good quantitie, a lytell vynegre, pruynes, great reasons, and dates, take the fattest of the broath of powdred beefe.  – A Propre new booke of Cokery, 1545

Seaman’s Steak / Sjømannsbiff

A Swedish classics from the commercial navy and fishing fleet found at Matprat.no

Even made in a cramped galley far out to sea the food should taste good. Then it was nice with a dish that more or less made ​​itself in the oven, so bench space could be used for something else. Seaman’s steak originates from Sweden, but there has certainly also been served similar dishes on board Norwegian ships and fishing boats. Beer gives the dish its distinctive flavour.

1934

Janik brothers Walter, Stephen and John started Keystone Water Company in the basement of their 24th and East Falls Street home in Niagara Falls, NY. They sold bulk water in 5-galloon  containers to nearby plants and offices. The water was prepared by a special ozonization process involving electrical discharges. It was only a matter of time before the Janik brothers saw the had all the ingredients necessary to move into the soft drink field.

1935 Extra Bottling Company
Cokes’ decision in 1934 to abandon it’s line of multi-flavour soft drinks and concentrate on selling Cola led to the birth of what is now called Johnnie Ryan Soda.  The brothers sensed that Coke’s decision would create a gap in the local soft drink market so they began producing several different flavours of soda pop. Coke at that time had a small split bottle which was 6 1/2 oz. The Janik’s decided to give the public a little more for their money so they went with a 8 oz bottle which was unheard of at the time! Inspired by the “extra pop” they provided in their bottles, the Janik’s chose to call the themselves the “Extra Bottling Company”.

johnnie ryan_031940 Main St Plant
The Extra Bottling company moved to Main St. in Niagara Falls. They relocated again in 1942 to a larger facility to the 1100 block of Main St. Operations continued there until 1947 when the current Niagara St plant was purchased. This facility formerly housed area 7-up Operations.

1942 Johnnie Ryan Company
John Janik sought to change company name to an Irish name to attract more business. After brainstorming several name variations that included both his eldest son’s names: John and Ron, he settled on the name Johnnie Ryan. Soon after red striped signs were painted on the exterior of taverns and restaurants throughout the city.

The bar dispensing business includes syrups and soft drinks dispensed at bars. To this day 90% of bars and restaurants in the Niagara Falls vicinity have the Johnnie Ryan System.

1978 2nd Generation, Niagara St Plant

Royal Cake / Fyrstekake

Post text and recipe from ThorNews:

060_fyrstekake_post
060_fyrstekake_01
Fyrstekake is a very popular cake in the Nordic countries, and it has an almond and marzipan base. In Norway it is common to serve it as a dessert. It is available in supermarkets, but every Scandinavian would agree that nothing tastes like the homemade cake – preferably made by grandma.

New York Times once wrote this uplifting story about Fyrstekake: Midcentury Scandinavian food never had the second life that Scandinavian furniture did. And if you’d like to know why, imagine the opposite — a world in which we savour salted herring and forget about Saarinen tables. No! But if we were to bring back just one worthy dish, I’d vote for Fyrstekake, also known as Royal Cake.(…) Fyrstekake is something between a cake and a bar cookie. It’s so fragrant and chewy that it begs for an accompanying cup of tea.

And if you are wondering what those red round thingies with white dots are all I can say is; I apologise on behalf of myself and my countrymen, but small red agarics in different materials are actually part of the traditional Norwegian Christmas decorations. Please don’t ask me why – Ted
