You can easily make this delicious casserole with pork and vegetables. The sauce is nice and spicy, and some roasted nuts – peanuts or cashews – adds the final touch to the dish.

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  😉

Peking Casserole / Pekinggryte

As the seventies neared its end the interest for Asian food grew in Europe, particularly Indian and Chinese. This dish is a good example of that, although chopsticks were obviously not in style yet even though the ingredients were perfectly cut for that purpose,but the rice was suggested cooked like you would it you intended to eat it with a fork – Ted  😉

Carl Butler writes: I love to cook and eat chicken. This is a variation which occurs frequently in my kitchen. In Greece they often prepares these all-in-one dishes in large baking ovens. But I know from experience that a most ordinary kitchen oven gives an equally delicious result.
