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

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.

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.
