Gulyás-Soup / Gulyás-Suppe

A classic Hungarian soup recipe found in “Berømte Retter”
(Famoud Dishes) published by Ernst G Mortensens Forlag in 1970
Gulyás-Soup / Gulyás-Suppe

Goulash (Hungarian: gulyás [ˈɡujaːʃ]) is a soup or stew of meat and vegetables, seasoned with paprika and other spices. Originating from the medieval Kingdom of Hungary, goulash is also a popular meal in Central Europe, Eastern Europe, the Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland, Scandinavia and Southern Europe.

Its origin traces back to the 9th century to stews eaten by Hungarian shepherds. Back then, the cooked and flavored meat was dried with the help of the sun and packed into bags produced from sheep’s stomachs, needing only water to make it into a meal. It is one of the national dishes of Hungary and a symbol of the country.

French Pot Roast / Fransk Grytestek

In the early sixties spaghetti started to turn up at Norwegian grocers. Some had heard of it before, a very few had tasted it, but most people hadn’t a clue about what to do with it. But did that stop them from buying it, far from. This new thing had to be tried. The result was as you can see from the picture, for years spaghetti was served in Norway as you would potatoes – Ted  😉
