The chickpea or chick pea (Cicer arietinum) is a legume of the family Fabaceae, subfamily Faboideae. Its different types are variously known as gram, or Bengal gram, garbanzo or garbanzo bean, Egyptian pea. Its seeds are high in protein. It is one of the earliest cultivated legumes: 7,500-year-old remains have been found in the Middle East.
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.
I haven’t the faintest idea about what grand duchess it is who has given name to this dish, but it is at least reasonable to assume that she was fond of chicken. Neither do I know if grande duchess salad, grand duchess cocktail and grand duchess consomme is credited to the same lady or if it is common among great chefs to dedicate dishes to grand duchesses without bothering to tell us which grand duchess. Whatever, the chicken dish in question does look absolutely delicious – Ted 🙂
It is not correct to use the term “cuisine” of French farmhouse cooking. It is more a natural part of life. There is no Machiavellian refined elements or superfluous embellishments. Good, simple ingredients in tasty dishes to suit the season, climate and work.

A classic Swedish dinner recipe found on receptfavoriter.se
The baked cod fillet is served with seafood sauce with shrimp, boiled potatoes and spinach. The dish can also be made with other fish fillets like pike perch, floundre or salmon.
There is quite a lot of work with this dish, but it is worth the while. If you want to make it a little easier, you can serve the eggs on toast and use spinach fried in butter instead of the spinach sauce.

You get home late, nothing is prepared and everyone is complaining about being hungry. This is one of those recipes that in a pinch you can have on the table in no time, and yet, it is delicious. It is very versatile too, just coddle some oysters on top for a quick first course of a casual dinner. A good caraway rye goes very well with this.
