Traditional food with an asumed origin from Western Norway. These days, this dish is eaten all over the country, and every “stewed fish family” have their own recipe. Some people use plain cod or stock fish instead of lightly salted cod. Some families may swear to pollock, but there is one thing they all have in common. A really tasty meal.

A delicious snack recipe found in “Lær Mer om Sopp” (Learn More About Mushrooms ) published by BAMA gruppen in 1982
Edible mushrooms are the fleshy and edible fruit bodies of several species of macrofungi (fungi which bear fruiting structures that are large enough to be seen with the naked eye). They can appear either below ground (hypogeous) or above ground (epigeous) where they may be picked by hand. Edibility may be defined by criteria that include absence of poisonous effects on humans and desirable taste and aroma.
Edible mushrooms are consumed for their nutritional value and they are occasionally consumed for their supposed medicinal value. Mushrooms consumed by those practicing folk medicine are known as medicinal mushrooms. While hallucinogenic mushrooms (e.g. psilocybin mushrooms) are occasionally consumed for recreational or religious purposes, they can produce severe nausea and disorientation, and are therefore not commonly considered edible mushrooms.
A pork stew recipe in holiday mood found in “52 Søndagsmiddager” (52 Sunday Dinners) published by Hjemmets Kokebokklubb in 1983
The easter holiday is getting close and those who haven’t had enough of snow and skiing yet here in Norway head for the mountains. The more sensible of us stay at home and enjoy the budding spring. What ever we choose, labouring over the pots and pans is a thing to avoid when in the holiday mood, so here’s a quick and easy stew for you
Classic Swedish beef stew flavored with allspice. Here with carrots but they can be excluded. Most taste and real flavour is obtained with meat on the bone. Regular stew meat will do as well but then you may need to add stock cube for more flavour.
A recipe from the Elizabethian Era found on CookIt
Meat stews formed part of the diet of many households. This rich, meaty version reflects an upper class dish, both due to the quantity of meat and the inclusion of mace. Note the French title, reflecting the Norman influence over England. Poorer households would not use any imported spices and would bulk out a small amount of meat with plenty of vegetables and grains.
Some people suggest the dish’s original name ‘Hericot de Mouton’ comes from the word halicoter, to cut up. On the other hand, some versions of this dish use a type of turnips called haricot. Lamb will not need parboiling but mutton would require parboiling to tenderise the meat.

This dish comes from Bergen but it is very similar to Irish Stew and it is not quite unlikely that the stew has found its way across the North Sea to the Norwegian west coast at one time. The strong bonds between The British Isles and Norway runs all the way back to the Viking era.
