A clamb recipe found in “Gryteretter” (Casseroles) by Jennie Reekie published in Norwegian in 1977
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
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
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
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.
An Asian inspired casserole recipe found in “Gryteretter” (Casseroles) published by Hjemmets Kokebokklubb in 1979
As the seventies neared its end the interest for Asian food grew in Europe, particularly Indian and Chinese. This dish is a good example of that, although chopsticks were obviously not in style yet even though the ingredients were perfectly cut for that purpose,but the rice was suggested cooked like you would it you intended to eat it with a fork – Ted 😉
This classic, spicy Thai massaman curry recipe is packed full of delicious flavour. This traditional Thai curry is made with coconut milk, massaman curry paste and tamarind, and has potatoes cooked with the beef to make this a hearty warming supper. Chopped peanuts give a nice crunch too.
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.
Lise Finckenhagen started working at Bagatelle (The only Norwegian restaurant with two stars in the Michelin Guide) under master chef Eyvind Hellstrom at age 16, and is today a popular cook both in Norway’s largest newspaper and in radio and television. She is a self-proclaimed cake monster and she thought of Dad and Father’s Day when she made meat stew with beer in in a popular radio show “Nitimen” (The Ninth Hour) in the second week in November.
A Swedish classics from the commercial navy and fishing fleet found at Matprat.no
Even made in a cramped galley far out to sea the food should taste good. Then it was nice with a dish that more or less made itself in the oven, so bench space could be used for something else. Seaman’s steak originates from Sweden, but there has certainly also been served similar dishes on board Norwegian ships and fishing boats. Beer gives the dish its distinctive flavour.
