Timme” (Nice Food in Half an Hour) published by

A classic Norwegian fish recipe found on matprat.no
Fried Mackerel with Sour Cream Sauce / Stekt Makrell med Rømmesaus

This is a serving method that has been used in the eastern part of Norway for time immemorial. One can of course cook the whole fish, but here it is chosen to use fillets. Slightly simpler considering that the super delicious sauce traditionally steals a lot of attention on the plate both from fish, cucumber salad and lemon.

Apple Waffles With Ice Cream And Raspberries / Eplevafler Med Is Og Bringebær

A classic Scndinavian waffle recipe found on aperitif.no
Apple Waffles With Ice Cream And Raspberries / Eplevafler Med Is Og Bringebær

Waffle Day on 25 March is a Swedish invention, and why it is celebrated rests on a misunderstanding. The day is the same as “Vårfruedag” – the day Virgin Mary learns that she is with child. “Vårfruedag” turned over time into “Vaffeldag” (Waffle Day) in Sweden but also here in Norway, it was customary to celebrate “Vårfruedag” with cakes.

Although we feel an ownership to waffles here in Scandinavia, similar cakes are eaten most places in the world. They can be round or square, thick or thin – the heart-shaped waffles is however typical of Scandinavia. The first electric waffle iron was designed by General Electric and entered the market in 1911.
