The Danes are fabulous when it comes to breading whether we’re talking breakfast, lunches or dinners. Breaded veal, plaise, other types of fish or chicken breast on a sandwich, bed of noodles or with remoulade, cucumber salad and mealy potatoes. Have your pick, the Danes will make it a meal to remember –Ted
From“Soup Beautiful Soup” by Ursel Norman with illustrations by Derek Norman – Published by William Morrow & Company in New York in 1978
This is an old German soup that has been a hot favourite with countless generations of children. Since its ingredients consist of simple country fare, this recipe or a variation would almost certainly have been popular when Dr. Hoffmann wrote his classic children’s story, Struwwelpeter in 1844, from which “The Story of Augustus who would not have any soup” is taken. It is a poem that testifies to the importance soup played in a child’s diet. Though it is difficult to imagine that this particular soup would have been rejected by Augustus. Ever! This old recipe remains very easy to prepare, is full of nutrition and is a firm favourite with children.

Chinese food is not, as many believe, strong and spicy. It is mild, tasty and light. Typically Chinese dishes can be otherwise characterized in that all the ingredients are small and finely cut and mixed with a sense of what goes well together what flavour and colour are concerned. Incidentally texture also plays a big role, there is always something to “chew” on Chinese food. The vegetables are never too much cooked and thick sauces does not exist. Sauces are thickened lightly with potato starch to provide a smooth and light sauce. The Chinese always use oil for frying, preferably peanut oil or sesame oil. Chinese or Japanese soy, which is black and salt, are an indispensable seasoning, as is ginger. Chinese food should never be left to simmer long, but be cooked quickly and served fresh.
