Youth Parties Anno 1969 / Ungdomsselskaper Anno 1969

A youth party suggestion with menu and recipes found in

Youth Parties Anno 1969 / Ungdomsselskaper Anno 1969

I found working with the last post so entertaining that I just had to do another post from the same book although both are more more work than most posts. Because if you think arranging a party for your young ones would provide less problems than serving crabs to a couple of friends you are absolutely mistaken.

The set of worries maybe different, but the chance of ending with egg on your face was indeed present. And all the worries about what would happen to your furniture and floors came on top of that.


I was sixteen in 1969 and I must admit that the parties I went to back then were home-alone-parties that didn’t have the slightest likeness to the parties described in this book. If not totally Sex Drugs & Rock’n’Roll we were close enough.

Matelote Alsacienne – Fish Casserole from Alsace / Fiskegryte fra Alsace

It is not correct to use the term “cousine” of French farmhouse cooking. It is more a natural part of life. There is no Machiavellian refinements or superfluous embellishments. Wholesome, tasty, simple ingredients in dishes to suit season, climate and workload.

Peking Casserole / Pekinggryte

An Asian inspired casserole recipe found in “Gryteretter”
(Casseroles) published by Hjemmets Kokebokklubb in 1979

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  😉

Chicken is very suitable for casseroles. The meat is lean and mild and lends itself greatly for a large diversity of flavorings.

lammegryte med røtter_post

This is a traditional Norwegian autumn dish. Together with “Mutton in Cabbage” it was served after the lambs were slaughtered in the autumn.

Around this time of the year the grocers here in Norway fill up with lambs meat particularly suite for these two dishes so, yes, the tradition is fortunately still alive – Ted

As this is a recipe card printed in Canada and the dish was Australian it was nice to see the dish served in a serving dish made by Figgjo Flint here in Norway. The dinnerware came in this blue design and a reddish/green one that I’ve got myself.

Polish Bigosch / Polsk Bigosch

The Polish national dish found in “God Mat Fra Hele Verden”
(Delicious Food From All The World) published in 1971
590_bigosch_post

There is no real recipe for this Polish national dish. It is varied from region to region and from house to house. It is a typical example of a “one takes what one has” kind of dish. Most common is the use of pork, but it is made with chicken and game too.

In this recipe cabbage is used as the main ingredient beside meat, but you can also add potatoes and apples to the dish.

For modern people this is a hearty main course, but in older times when the demands for a heavy meal was much larger than we know them, the dish was also served as an appetizer. They did not eat from plates, but everyone helped themselves directly from the pot.
