West African Meat and Spinach Stew / Vestafrikanske Kjøtt- og Spinatstuing

An African recipe found in “The Best of International Cooking”
published by Hamlyn in 1984

West African Meat and Spinach Stew / Vestafrikanske Kjøtt- og Spinatstuing

West African cuisine encompasses a diverse range of foods that are split between its 16 countries. In West Africa, many families grow and raise their own food, and within each there is a division of labor. Indigenous foods consist of a number of plant species and animals, and are important to those whose lifestyle depends on farming and hunting.

The history of West Africa also plays a large role in their cuisine and recipes, as interactions with different cultures (particularly the Arab world and later Europeans) over the centuries have introduced many ingredients that would go on to become key components of the various national cuisines today.

Pork Marengo / Svinekjøtt Marengo

A dinner recipe from a card in “Better Homes
and Gardens Recipe Card Library” published in 1979Pork Marengo / Svinekjøtt Marengo

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.

Traditional Norwegian Smoked Lamb with Onion Sauce / Røkt Lammekjøtt med Løksaus

Smoking is an old cooking and preserving method for meat and fish. Smoked foods get a distinctive smoked flavor that many people like. While smoking was previously used as a preservation method in the old days, the preservative effect is limited, so smoking is currently used mainly to give taste and aroma to the food here in Norway.
