lyngørPreviously a popular home for sea captains, the village is accessible only by boat, has no cars, and is known for its scenic harbour and charming wooden houses. It is recognized as one of the best-preserved communities in Europe. Most of the buildings are now summer homes, but there are about 70 permanent, year-round residents. A hugely popular destination in the summer months, it has in later years struggled to maintain a stable permanent population. The community has a sail-making factory, a few restaurants that are open during the tourist season, and a famous general store.

A delicious vegetable lunch dish full of Mediterranean goodies. Serve it with fresh ciabattas og en Ruffino Classico and close your eyes and imagine yourself seated at a sidewalk table in Palermo. Sounds nice doesn’t it, particularly here in Oslo, where the winter’s first snow fell yesterday – Ted  😉
