A recipe from 1420 found on Inn At The Crossroads
Chelsea at “Inn At The Crossroads” writes: The leeks and salt pork cook until they are so soft that they almost melt, leaving the slivered almonds to make a textural statement. Each bite transitions from the saltiness of the broth, to the soft flavors of the leeks and pork, then ends with a strong nutty, crunchy finish. I’ve made it as in the original, but if I were to make it again, I might include a sprig or two of herbs for some added nutrients and complexity. It would also be tasty paired with a nice toasted slice of dark rye bread.
Fresh salmon is so cheap and plentyful in our shops here in Norway that eating canned ones seems strange to us. But a quick check showed that the net is crammed full of recipes for canned salmon so it obviously doesn’t seem that strange elsewhere. Besides, transporting fresh fish over larger distances back in 1900 was close to impossible so back then eating canned salmon probably seemed more sensible –Ted
A pâté (from French pâté; dough or mass) is a solid paste, preferably with embedded strips or pieces of, for example ham, fish or chicken liver. Pates can be served both hot and cold, but is considered to be the most tasty after a few days of cooling.
Patés are mostly made of minced fish, shellfish, meat or poultry, especially liver and blubber. The paste of one or more types of meat, fish or shellfish are mixed in the raw state with spices and eggs or other binders. A bird which is filled with pate is called a galantine. Fruit can also be baked into a pâté.
Paté is usually served cold, often with sweet and sour accessories such as cumberlands sauce and cucumber salad. It can form part of the first or main dishes or be used as sandwich topping.
This is a classic version of the popular Mexican soup. The meatballs provide protein, while rice adds whole grains to this healthful dish. If desired, you can use all beef instead of half beef and half pork.

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

This pea soup that originates from Stryn was widely served during harvesting and threshing back in the old days. All vegetables that was available was generally used, as well as the meat or flesh that could be used. The beef, mutton or pork was usually smoked, dried or salted. It was standard to serve the soup with flatbread and always with boiled potatoes. The flatbread was usually dipped in the broth during the meal.
Small, crispy fried pancakes made of ground mung beans with diced ham and kim chee is a tasty appetizer served with flavorings such as chilisauce and soy sauce. They can be eaten both hot and cold.
There is something homely and nice about pork chops. In all the changing food fashions that I’ve seen up through my life pork chops have been just like denims, impossible to kill by the people who like to tell us what we should eat or wear – Ted 😉

Just to clearify: Faggots are a traditional dish in the UK, especially South and Mid Wales and the Midlands of England. It is made from meat off-cuts and offal, especially pork. A faggot is traditionally made from pig’s heart, liver and fatty belly meat or bacon minced together, with herbs added for flavouring and sometimes bread crumbs.
Faggots originated as a traditional cheap food of ordinary country people in Western England, particularly west Wiltshire and the West Midlands. Their popularity spread from there, especially to South Wales in the mid-nineteenth century, when many agricultural workers left the land to work in the rapidly expanding industry and mines of that area.
Faggots are also known as “ducks” in the Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and Lancashire, often as “Savoury Ducks”. The first use of the term in print was in the Manchester Courier and Lancashire General Advertiser on Saturday June 3 1843, a news report of a gluttonous man who ate twenty of them.
