Cock-a-Leekie Soup / Kyllingsuppe med Purre

While it is called “Scotland’s National Soup,” it probably originated as a chicken and onion soup in France. By the 16th century, it had made its way to Scotland, where the onions were replaced with leeks. The first recipe was printed in 1598, though the name “cock-a-leekie” did not come into use until the 18th century.

West African Chicken in Peanut Sauce / Vestafrikansk Kylling i Peanøttsaus

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.

Frankfurters are very popular in Norway, both among children and grownups, but they are not often served as fancy as in this recipe. It will take a little time, but it will be worth it, believe me – Ted
