They all had dinner – fourteen of them round the immense three-pedestal table extended to its uttermost and even then they were crammed round it. They ate four roast chickens, bread sauce, mashed potato and runner beans followed by plum tart and what the Duchy called Shape – blancmange.

From “The Light Years” by Elizabeth Jane Howard

Ricotta (pronounced [riˈkɔtta] in Italian) is an Italian whey cheese made from sheep, cow, goat, or Italian water buffalo milk whey left over from the production of cheese. Like other whey cheeses, it is made by coagulating the proteins that remain after the casein has been used to make cheese, notably albumin and globulin.

A traditional Swedish vegetable soup recipe

It is so nice when the first beets are harvested and you can eat them lightly cooked with a dollop of butter. When they have lost their news value it’s time for soup. This recipe is traditional, but if you want to add an extra spark, serve it with freshly grated horseradish, this lovely gastronomic booster.

Most of us come across recipes for stuffed avocado from time to time, but it is usually as appetizers stuffed with shrimp salad or similar fillings. But I must say this variant was at least new to me, I even find it a little hard to see if it is a starter or a dessert – Ted

The lamb yogurt combination is known from a lot of different

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.
