A snack recipe found in “Thrifty New Tips on a Grand Old Favorite” published by H J Heinz Co in 1932
The English author and singer/songwriter Michael Harding say on an intro to one of the songs on one of his records “Beans are bad at the best of times”. Although I’m a big fan I can’t quite agree with him there, I’m actually quite fond of beans – Ted
A classic soup recipe found in “Ganske Enkelt -Italiensk Kokebok” (Quite Simply – Italian Cook Book) published by Notabene Forlag in 1995
I love working with cookbooks with thumbnails like in this one, but I really shouldn’t because it means a lot more work. I have build the final image out of one large, four small ones and add the numbers on top. Takes about three times as long as preparing a single picture for posting. But I’m a designer and our minds don’t work like normal people’s does
A real classic British breakfast recipe found in a booklet published by gilde.no
It was somewhat strange to find such an utter British dish in a booklet from a Norwegian meat supplier, but so what. I’m a real sucker for a solid breakfast and always go for the full english when in Britiain. Continental is for sissies – Ted 😉
The guy who runs The Medieval Vegan writes: Lent is a great opportunity for the The Medieval Vegan since it was a time of fasting and so the foods eaten are a lot closer to what I’ve been cooking. Of course the medieval Christian would still count fish (and sometimes any meat that they made to look like fish) but even so there are a number of recipes that are truly vegan.

Eden Rock, St Barths is a luxury resort in Saint Barthélemy in the Caribbean, jutting out on a craggy quartzite bluff overlooking the Baie de Saint Jean on the central north coast. The resort is very popular with the rich and famous.
The resort was established in the 1950s by St Barth’s politician Rémy de Haenen (d.2008) who sold it to the Matthews family in 1995. It was reportedly frequented by Greta Garbo and Howard Hughes; Garbo once checked in for three days under the alias of Suzy Schmidt, but loved it so much that she stayed for three weeks.
A snack recipe from an ad for Kraft published in 1967
The recipe says to grill the sandwiches till the cheese has melted, but the cheese on the pictures looks only slightly out of shape to me. Melted cheddar tastes great, lukewarm cheddar on the other hand… – Ted
