A delightful dish for people with a herb garden, a henhouse and hippie tendencies. I’ve had my share of dishes like this back in the late seventies early eighties when the smallholding dream hit my generation in full force. It did not last, they soon missed the latte and the sushi and headed back for the bright lights and the big city and became yuppies instead. Typical of the Scandinavian baby boom generation born in the fifties and early sixties, always searching for something else – Ted 😉
Note: My rambling comments are no critic of the dish itself, it is absolutely delicious. Besides, who am I to talk, I’m part of that baby boom generation myself 😀
Beef Salad Parisienne. A hearty salad with juicy steak, tender potatoes, sliced onions, and a zesty vinaigrette that could also doubles as a marinade.
In context: Cattelin’s is one of the best and most reasonably priced restaurants in Stockholm. It has survived wars, disasters, and changing tastes, and still manages to pack ‘em in, so they must be doing something right. Read more here and here.
A nice fish patties recipe found on godt.no
I know I’ve posted about fish patties earlier, but fish patties are staple food in Norway. Any decent grocer will have at least 6 or 8 different types in stock. Almost any type of fish can be used, my mother made great patties from pike and perch I used to catch in my youth.
There are a multitude of recipes for fish patties around the country so I’ll be sure to post more recipes in the future – Ted
