A great camping snack recipe found on homemaderecipes.com
These delicious snacks can be made ready at home before you head for the hike and grilled on a campfire grill grid when you have set up camp, dinner is over and the tea water is boiling. If you don’t bother to bring a grid a few stick will work just as well.
You could make these snacks at home too of course, but we all know they will taste much, much better by the campfire – Ted 😉
I haven’t the faintest idea about what grand duchess it is who has given name to this dish, but it is at least reasonable to assume that she was fond of chicken. Neither do I know if grande duchess salad, grand duchess cocktail and grand duchess consomme is credited to the same lady or if it is common among great chefs to dedicate dishes to grand duchesses without bothering to tell us which grand duchess. Whatever, the chicken dish in question does look absolutely delicious – Ted 🙂

Original 18. Century Recipe
“Put a bit of butter into a stew-pan, throw in large oysters and some mushrooms, with pepper, salt, pounded cloves, parsley, and sweet herbs chopped, a dust of flour; stir these about half a minute, then put the oysters on silver skewers, a mushroom between each; roll them in crumbs of bread; broil them; put into the stew-pan a little good gravy, let it be thick and palatable; a little lemon-juice. Serve the oysters on the skewers; the sauce on the dish.”
—From “The lady’s assistant for regulating and supplying the table: being a complete system of cookery… including the fullest and choicest receipts of various kinds.”
by Charlotte Mason (1787)
I bought this book in a used book shop here in Oslo the other day. I didn’t check it very thoroughly, just made sure there was lots of colour phictures. When I got home and started to scan the book I realised that the recipes and the pictures were not on the same page at all. Irritating of course, it makes scanning a lot more time consuming.
Well, my mistake, but I’m a stubborn sod, so I scanned it anyway – Ted 😉
A real classic British breakfast recipe found in a booklet published by gilde.no
It was somewhat strange to find such an utter British dish in a booklet from a Norwegian meat supplier, but so what. I’m a real sucker for a solid breakfast and always go for the full english when in Britiain. Continental is for sissies – Ted 😉

A quick breakfast recipe found on BBCgoodfood
This combines all the best ingredients of a traditional English breakfast in one frying pan, with no need to chop anything.
This is a convenient little dish that lends itself well both as a club snack or a Saturday evening meal. You may add a layer of cooked rice in the bottom of the mould if you want to make a more filling dish. Instead of the wine you can pour a little light cream over rolles before gratinating.
Gratinated ham rolls is a dish you can resort to when time is short. put the mould in the microwave and it takes only a minute or two before you can seve the dish.
An exiting recipe found on ‘World Turn’d Upside Down‘

Stephanie Ann Farra who runs ‘World Turn’d Upside Down‘ writes: Mushroom ketchup was something I’ve been wanting to make for a long time. I love the fact that this was a common sauce so different from the ketchup we use today. In the early 1700s, ketchup was introduced to English explorers by the people of Singapore and Malaysia. Originally a sauce for fish, ketchup was made out of walnuts, oysters or mushrooms and was similar to soy sauce. The English expanded the use of the sauce and it became popular for fish and meat dishes.
