A classic Finish dinner recipe found on
what was then called
 
about.co.uk
Karjalan Paisti - Karelian Hot Pot / Karelsk Gryterett

Karelian Hot Pot or Karjalan Paisti in Finnish is a traditional meat stew from the region of Karelia (now split between Finland and Russia). It’s commonly made with a combination of pork and beef but other proteins, like lamb, can be used. Finnish hot pot is typically seasoned with black peppercorns, allspice and bay leaves.

This Finnish stew is made in one large pot over low heat, once everything is chopped, it’s a real hands-off recipe. Serve Karelian Hot Pot as the Finns do, with mashed potatoes and cranberry or lingonberry preserves on the side.

Veal Stew with Oranges / Kalvegryde med Appelsin

It’s not very often you see Scandinavian dinner recipes using fruit to the to the extent that Mona Giersing is using here. It almost gives this veal stew a touch of the Caribbean and that certainly works for me – Ted

I’m not quite sure why the authors of the book has chosen to call this dish English Casserole, it could just as easily has been from any of the Scandinavian countries. Not that this matter much, recipes have traveled to and fro over the North Sea for more than a 1000 years so who care where it came from initially, it looks delicious – Ted

Lamb in Yogurt Sauce / Lam i Yoghurtsaus

The lamb yogurt combination is known from a lot of different
cousins. We know it from Greece, North Africa the Indian subcontinent
and several other places. The book gives no clue to where this recipe comes from but an educated guess might place it in Northern Africa

Youth Parties Anno 1969 / Ungdomsselskaper Anno 1969

A youth party suggestion with menu and recipes found in
“Vi Skal Ha Gjester” (We’re Having Guests)
published by Johan Grundt Tanum Forlag in 1969

Youth Parties Anno 1969 / Ungdomsselskaper Anno 1969

I found working with the last post so entertaining that I just had to do another post from the same book although both are more more work than most posts. Because if you think arranging a party for your young ones would provide less problems than serving crabs to a couple of friends you are absolutely mistaken.

The set of worries maybe different, but the chance of ending with egg on your face was indeed present. And all the worries about what would happen to your furniture and floors came on top of that.


I was sixteen in 1969 and I must admit that the parties I went to back then were home-alone-parties that didn’t have the slightest likeness to the parties described in this book. If not totally Sex Drugs & Rock’n’Roll we were close enough.
