Pollock Steaks with Onion / Seibiff med Løk

A classic Norwegian dinner dish found on matprat.no286_Seibiff med løk_post

Pollock is an excellent fish, when speaking of great taste this fish is in a class of its own. Pollock steaks with onions is a delicious Norwegian everyday classic.

This recipe calls for broccoli and cherry tomatoes. When little Ted was served this as a child it was much more likely served with butter steamed carrot slices and green peas as both broccoli and cherry tomatoes was introduced to the Norwegian kitchen so late that they look a little out of place in a recipe for a classic Norwegian dish.

I still eat my pollock steaks with onion with carrots and peas, a classic is after all a classic – Ted 😉

Soda &Soft Drink Saturday – Lucozade

Lucozade is an umbrella name for a series of energy and sports drinks that are produced by GlaxoSmithKline. Lucozade (along side Ribena) is currently being produced at the Royal Forest Factory in Coleford, Gloucestershire, in the Forest of Dean, United Kingdom.

History

lucozade_001

“Glucozade” was first manufactured in 1927 by William Owen, a chemist fromNewcastle who experimented for several years to provide a source of energy for those who were sick with common illnesses, like the common cold or influenza. It became lucozade_007available throughout Britain for use in hospitals under the name Glucozade. This was changed to Lucozade in 1929.

In 1953, a factory for the production of Lucozade products was opened in Brentford, England, which, until 2004, had an iconic sign seen on the side of the M4 motorway (now in Gunnersbury Park Museum). Local people were reportedly upset when the sign was removed. A new and identical sign replaced the old sign in 2010.

Lucozade has a research arm known as The Lucozade Sports Science Academy, which has been carrying out nutritional research for over 30 years. It works in partnership with leading universities, coaches, nutritionists, and sports professionals.

lucozade_004Lucozade was sold in a glass bottle with a Cellophane wrap until 1983, when Lucozade was rebranded as an energy drink to shift the brand’s associations away from illness. The slogan “Lucozade aids recovery” was replaced by “Lucozade replaces lost energy”. The glass bottle was replaced by a plastic (polyethylene terephthalate, PET) one. After the rebranding, between 1984 and 1989 UK sales tripled to almost £75 million.

In 2013, Lucozade along with Ribena was put up for sale by its founderGlaxoSmithKline. Sir Andrew Witty (Chief Executive of GlaxoSmithKline) said that “there has been a lot of interest for the two brands”. Analysts say that the deal could reach £1bn.

Blondies

If cakes like these made with dark chocolate is called brownies, and the ones on the pictures here that are made with milk chocolate is called blondies, shouldn’t ones made with white chocolate be called albinos – Ted 😉

Corn Dogs / Innbakte Frityrstekte Pølser

A fairground classic recipe found on lostrecipesfound.com
Corn Dogs_lostrecipesfound_post

Here’s a little-known fact: Early corn-dog purveyor Ed Waldmire, Jr., wanted to call his corn-dog stand “The Crusty Cur”….his wife convinced him to change the name to “Cozy Pup.”  Like most other American fried-food-on-a-stick, batter-fried weiner wands have state fair connections.

Vaudeville actors Carl and Neil Fletcher abandoned their Dallas song-and-dance act tent show in 1938 when the Texas State Fair offered them the chance to operate a food booth. The two had read about a man in the Oaklawn neighbourhood of Dallas who was baking corn-battered hotdogs in moulds, and the idea intrigued them, so the brothers set out to improve on the product. They perfected their batter-dipped and fried corn dog in time for the 1942 Texas State Fair.

Easy, portable and quick, corn dogs soon became fast-food-restaurant darlings. Cozy Dog Drive-in in Springfield, IL claims first-to-market status (1946) but restaurateur Dave Barham started selling at Hot Dog on a Stick in Santa Monica, CA, that same year.

Peshawari Naan / Naan fra Peshawar

A recipe for filled naan found on goodtoknow.co.uk
Peshwari naan_goodtoknow_post

This Peshawari naan recipe is simple and makes a great Indian cuisine side dish. They only take 8 min. to cook and complete any classic Indian dish. These delicious breads are traditionally stuffed with a fruit and nut mixture then baked quickly in a tandoor oven – an Indian clay oven that reaches very high temperatures.

They will cook just as well in a hot domestic oven but make sure they are placed on a preheated baking sheet so they start to puff up immediately (slow cooking will make them tough and leathery). They are best eaten warm from the oven brushed with melted butter or ghee and with a sprinkling of fresh chopped coriander if liked.

Old-Fashioned Gingersnaps / Gammeldagse Ingefærkjeks

An old spicy cookie recipe found on bhg.com
Old-Fashioned Gingersnaps_post

Gingersnaps, also called ginger biscuits, are a type of cookie. The name comes from the fact these cookies traditionally are very crispy and make a snapping sound when eaten. Gingersnaps are a derivation of gingerbread and were invented hundreds of years ago. People in colonial times enjoyed these cookies, both in European countries and in America.

Origins

Ginger is derived from the ginger root and is native to parts of South Asia; historians believe it was first cultivated in India. Ginger was prized for its valuable effects on health and imported for its medicinal uses before it was utilized for cooking purposes. Ginger found its way to ancient Rome, then to Africa and the Caribbean. In medieval times, ginger was imported to Europe in preserved form to be used in baking treats such as cakes and cookies.
