I posted a recipe for potato dumpings the other day. This is a more extensive recipe for a similar dish. I know this one well as my x-mother-in-law often made it – Ted
Ceviche is a fun way to cook food. It is a method of preparing raw fish and shellfish. You marinate raw fish or shellfish in lime or lemon juice and the citrus acid causes the proteins to coagulate, so the seafood is actually cooked. You can add any kind of tastes to a ceviche.
Beef and lamb liver is well suited for this dish. Lamb liver may have a slightly drier texture than beef’s, but many people still like lamb liver the best. Do not fry the liver slices for too long. They should be pink and soft in the center. If you’re fond of onions you can cut an onion in slices and fry them in butter or margarine before placing them on top of the liver slices.
Contrary to most Western European shellfish soups this Russian style lobster soup is thick, filling and served with a couple of thin toasts (Toast Melba) with each serving it is hardly an appatizer but a a full meal.
Melba toast is a dry, crisp and thinly sliced toast, often served with soup and salad or topped with either melted cheese or pâté. It is named after Dame Nellie Melba, the stage name of Australian opera singer Helen Porter Mitchell. Its name is thought to date from 1897, when the singer was very ill and it became a staple of her diet. The toast was created for her by chef and fan Auguste Escoffier, who also created the Peach Melba dessert for her. The hotel proprietor César Ritz supposedly named it in a conversation with Escoffier.
Melba toast is made by lightly toasting slices of bread under a grill, on both sides. The resulting toast is then sliced laterally. The thin slices are then returned to the grill with the untoasted sides towards the heat source, resulting in toast half the normal thickness.Thus, it can be described as a twice-baked food (see rusk).
Melba toast is also available commercially, and was at one time given to infants who were teething as a hard food substance on which to chew.
In France, it is referred to as croûtes en dentelle.
Finnan haddie (also known as Finnan haddock, Finnan, Finny Haddock or Findrum speldings) is cold-smoked haddock, representative of a regional method of smoking with green wood and peat in north-east Scotland. Its origin is the subject of a debate, as some sources attribute the origin to the hamlet of Findon, Aberdeenshire, (also sometimes called Finnan) near Aberdeen, while others insist that the name is a corruption of the village name of Findhorn at the mouth of the River Findhorn in Moray.

Wasabi (ワサビ or わさび（山葵), earlier 和佐比; Eutrema japonicum or Wasabia japonica) is a plant of the Brassicaceae family, which includes cabbages, horseradish, and mustard. It is also called Japanese horseradish, although horseradish is a different plant (which is generally used as a substitute for wasabi, due to the scarcity of the wasabi plant). Its stem is used as a condiment and has an extremely strong pungency more akin to hot mustard than the capsaicin in a chili pepper, producing vapours that stimulate the nasal passages more than the tongue. The plant grows naturally along stream beds in mountain river valleys in Japan. The two main cultivars in the marketplace are E. japonicum ‘Daruma’ and ‘Mazuma’, but there are many others. The origin of wasabi cuisine has been clarified from the oldest historical records; it takes its rise in Nara prefecture, and more recently has seen a surge in popularity from the early 1990s to mid 2000s.
I hope you don’t get too disappointed when you find out that these
steakes are made of minced beef. Norwegians have a tendency to call
large thick patties for steaks. My apologies visitors
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
This dish was very popular among the people of the upper echelon
in Norway in the seventies. As I’m in no way part of that crowd I’m
not sure if they still serve it or if other dishes with similar confusing
names are more in vogue in those circles to day
Fish soup with vegetables is a delicacy. And it is inexpensive food because the basic broth is made from fish heads, skin and bones.
Here you got a basic recipe, which can be varied with different species of fish. For example, choose cod, haddock, pollock or whiting.
If this dish was old-fashioned back in 1932 it sure is today. An unfamiliar way to serve cod for a Scandinavian, but it does sound delicious. Apart from the beets and onion it sound a little like what we call “Plukkfisk” in Norway – Ted
