Marengo dishes – According to a popular myth, the dish was first made after Napoleon defeated the Austrian army at the Battle of Marengo at Marengo south of Turin, Italy, when his chef Dunand foraged in the town for ingredients (because the supply wagons were too distant) and created the dish from what he could gather. According to this legend, Napoleon enjoyed the dish so much he had it served to him after every battle, and when Durand was later better-supplied and substituted mushrooms for crayfish and added wine to the recipe, Napoleon refused to accept it, believing that a change would bring him bad luck. Marengo dishes are loosely based on the dish Dunand created at Marengo.

Lapskaus is a traditional Norwegian warm dinner dish made of (originally cheap) fried or cooked meat (usually beef or pork), potatoes and various vegetables and spices. The ingredients are cut into cubes, tasted with salt and pepper and boiled to a soup or stew. The dish usually contains vegetables such as carrots, rutabaga and onion and is usually served with flat bread or other types of bread. Lapskaus probably comes from the English word lobscouse; Lob’s course (of lob and course) meaning that the course have crossed the North Sea at one point in time.

you live you really should try this recipe

Pan-fried potato cakes (maakouda batata) are a much-loved street food in Morocco, but you’ll also find them prepared at home. This is a traditional version of the patties, made from a mixture of mashed potatoes, garlic, spices and herbs. Zesty seasoning makes all the difference, so don’t be afraid to taste as you go and add some cayenne pepper or notch up the garlic a bit.
Once the patties are shaped, they’re given a dip in egg and flour before heading for the oil. Some Moroccans will dip them in a fritter batter instead.
