An African recipe found in “The Best of International Cooking” published by Hamlyn in 1984
West African cuisine encompasses a diverse range of foods that are split between its 16 countries. In West Africa, many families grow and raise their own food, and within each there is a division of labor. Indigenous foods consist of a number of plant species and animals, and are important to those whose lifestyle depends on farming and hunting.
The history of West Africa also plays a large role in their cuisine and recipes, as interactions with different cultures (particularly the Arab world and later Europeans) over the centuries have introduced many ingredients that would go on to become key components of the various national cuisines today.
A lunch salad recipe found in “Cattelins Kokebok” (Cattelin’s Cook Book) published in 1978
Cattelin was one of the best and cheapest restaurants in Stockholm. It had survived wars, disasters and changing tastes, and still managed to pack ‘em in until they were forced to shut down in 2011, so they must have done a lot of things right.
A dinner recipe found in “Gode, Gamle Oppskrifter” (Good, Old-fashiond Recipes) in the “Ingrids Beste” (Ingrid’s Best) series published by Gyldendal in 1991
Beef and lamb liver is well suited for this dish. Lamb liver may have a slightly drier texture than beef’s, but many people still like lamb liver the best. Do not fry the liver slices for too long. They should be pink and soft in the center. If you’re fond of onions you can cut an onion in slices and fry them in butter or margarine before placing them on top of the liver slices.
A traditional Scotish fish dish found in “War Time Recipes” published by The Proctor & Gamble Co in 1918
Finnan haddie (also known as Finnan haddock, Finnan, Finny Haddock or Findrum speldings) is cold-smoked haddock, representative of a regional method of smoking with green wood and peat in north-east Scotland. Its origin is the subject of a debate, as some sources attribute the origin to the hamlet of Findon, Aberdeenshire, (also sometimes called Finnan) near Aberdeen, while others insist that the name is a corruption of the village name of Findhorn at the mouth of the River Findhorn in Moray.
A fresh take on the club sandwich found in “Torsk til Hverdag og Fest” (Cod for Everydays and Parties) a free E-book published byGodfisk!
Cod is perfect for everyday life when time is scarce, the family is hungry and you need a healthy, quick and tasty dinner.
But cod is also great as party food. Put cod on the table when family or friends get together for a nice meal and a good mood is guaranteed. With its firm white fish meat and its delicate flavor, the cod fits just perfectly both for everydays and parties.

I’ve heard of both angels on horseback and devils on horseback, even posted a recipe for the angels way back in 2014. But chicken on horseback was new to me. Looks nice enough to give a try though, chicken thighs, prunes and bacon sounds like a delicious combo – Ted
Traditional food with an asumed origin from Western Norway. These days, this dish is eaten all over the country, and every “stewed fish family” have their own recipe. Some people use plain cod or stock fish instead of lightly salted cod. Some families may swear to pollock, but there is one thing they all have in common. A really tasty meal.
A dinner recipe found in “What’s New in Cookery” published by Aluminum Goods Manufacturing Co in 1928
This dish was very popular among the people of the upper echelon in Norway in the seventies. As I’m in no way part of that crowd I’m not sure if they still serve it or if other dishes with similar confusing names are more in vogue in those circles to day
