It’s commonly made with a combination of pork and beef but other proteins, like lamb, can be used. Finnish hot pot is typically seasoned with black peppercorns, allspice and bay leaves.

This Finnish stew is made in one large pot over low heat, once everything is chopped, it’s a real hands-off recipe. Serve Karelian Hot Pot as the Finns do, with mashed potatoes and cranberry or lingonberry preserves on the side.

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.

Verden” (Great Food from All Over The World)
published by Schibsted in 1971

A shallow hole was dug in the ground making a primitive barbecue fired with wood found around picnic spot. The meat was stuck on wooden sticks and fried over the fire. Initially, the heat should be strong, forming a good brown crust on the meat. The heat was then dampened by covering the flames with ashes and the meat was cooked till done. The meat was repeatedly brushed with oil, but was first seasoned after it was done.

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.
