Cod is perfect for everyday life when time is scarce, the family is hungry and you need a healthy, quick and tasty dinner.

But cod is also great as party food. Put cod on the table when family or friends get together for a nice meal and a good mood is guaranteed. With its firm white fish meat and its delicate flavor, the cod fits just perfectly both for everydays and parties.

Faggots and Mushy Peas / Faggots og Mushy Peas

A classic pub-grub recipe found on Picture Britain
Faggots and Mushy Peas / Faggots og Mushy Peas

Abigail Rogers Young who runs Picture Britain writes: This would be one of those snigger-behind-your-hand British/American language differences. I’m sure that you Brits simply live for the look on your American friends’ faces when you say, “Oh yes, we’re having faggots and mushy peas for lunch. Oh, some mash as well, and we’ll cover the whole thing in gravy!”

This traditional British dish (also known as “savoury ducks”) seems to have been concocted for the purpose of using up absolutely every part of a pig that you would never eat otherwise, and was especially popular with the rationing of World War II. The “good old-fashioned way” to make faggots is with a pig’s heart, liver and fatty belly meat or bacon minced together, with herbs added for flavoring, and sometimes bread crumbs. The mixture is shaped into balls, wrapped with caul fat (the omentum membrane from the pig’s abdomen), and baked. Tasty, innnit?

So, my non-British friends, if you want to impress your dinner guests with your expertise in international cuisine, really make them wonder, or just want to gross them out, here is the recipe for British faggots (and please don’t forget the marrowfat peas!).

I have eaten this dish for lunch at countless pubs all over the UK and
can assure you that it’s infinitely more tasty than it sounds like. But I’m
Norwegian and we eat a lot of strange things here as well

Islander Treat Salad / Karibisk Salattraktering

A salad recipe found in “Swappin’ Good Recipes Feat. Cottage Cheese” published by American Dairy Association in 1970Islander Treat Salad / Karibisk Salattraktering

Unless you were stinking rich I guess this was a salad you might have served rather seldom. Four servings of salad made from 8 freshly cooked lobster tail served with fresh pineapple was not cheap ingredients back in 1970, neither are they today.
But man, it looks absolutely delicious.

Baked Potato Variations / Bakt Potet Variasjoner

Baked Potato Variations / Bakt Potet Variasjoner

Baking is a great way to cook potatoes. They can be eaten as regular boiled potatoes, but can also be served as an appetizer or main course together with suitable accessories. You should choose quite large potatoes, but it is also possible to bake smaller ones. Mealy varieties are best suited. Note that it is not a good idea to wrap the potatoes in aluminum foil. They get a much better taste and texture without.

Medieval Monday – Hanoney

A historic egg dish recipe found on
One Year and Thousand Eggs
Hanoney_page_thumb2_thumb

Take eggs, and draw the yolks and white through a strainer, And take onions, And Shred them small. And take fair butter or grease, and scarcely cover over the pan therewith. And fry the onions together, then let them fry together a little while. And take them up, And serve them forth so, all broken in a dish.

From Harleian MS. 4016, I Volume
