A stroganoff variation with chicken found in “A Sampler of Modern Sour Cream Recipes” published by the American Dairy Association in 1970
Beef Stroganoff (Russian: бефстроганов befstróganov) is a Russian dish of sautéed pieces of beef or served in a sauce with smetana (sour cream). From its origins in mid-19th-century Russia, it has become popular around the world, with considerable variation from the original recipe such as this one.
Various explanations are given for the name, presumably derived from some member of the large and important Stroganov family, perhaps Alexander Grigorievich Stroganoff of Odessa or a diplomat, Count Pavel Stroganov.

Crisco is a brand of shortening produced by The J.M. Smucker Company popular in the United States. Introduced in June 1911 by Procter & Gamble, it was the first shortening to be made entirely of vegetable oil. Additional products marketed by Smucker under the Crisco brand include a cooking spray, various olive oils, and other cooking oils, including canola, corn, peanut, olive, sunflower, vegetable and blended oils.
If you’re living outside the US you can get hold of Crisco at My American Market if you want to try it in a typical American recipe – Ted
A dinner recipe found in “Bogen om Kyllinger” (The Book About Chicken) published by Lademann in 1972
A schnitzel is meat, usually thinned by pounding with a meat tenderizer, that is fried in some kind of oil or fat. The term is most commonly used to refer to meats coated with flour, beaten eggs and bread crumbs, and then fried, but some variants such as Walliser Schnitzel are not breaded. Originating in Austria, the breaded schnitzel is popular in many countries and made using either veal, mutton, chicken, beef, turkey, reindeer, or pork. It is very similar to the French dish escalope.
A classic soup recipe found in “Ganske Enkelt -Italiensk Kokebok” (Quite Simply – Italian Cook Book) published by Notabene Forlag in 1995
I love working with cookbooks with thumbnails like in this one, but I really shouldn’t because it means a lot more work. I have build the final image out of one large, four small ones and add the numbers on top. Takes about three times as long as preparing a single picture for posting. But I’m a designer and our minds don’t work like normal people’s does

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.
A recipe from “God Mat Fra Hele Verden” (Delicious Food From The Whole World) published bySchibsted in 1971
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.
