A recipe for the Welch national dish Cawl found at
was then called about.com
Cawl is the national dish of Wales. Welsh Cawl is a stew and made from bacon, Welsh lamb or beef, cabbage and leeks. Though more traditionally cheaper cuts of lamb are used, be warned Welsh recipes for Cawl vary from region to region and sometimes even season to season.There is no hard and fast rule.
Cawl can be eaten in one bowl, though often the broth will be served first followed by the meat and vegetables.
The flavors in Welsh Cawl do improve by keeping for a day or two, so don’t be afraid to make it in advance or save any leftovers for reheating.
A classic Swedish dinner recipe found on godmat.org
A real autumn dish that is both cheap and easy to prepare. Very simple to convert to cabbage soup by increasing the spice, broth and water volume. If you have the time, shape the minced meat into small meatballs.
Fish gratin is a classic Norwegian dinner dish. It’s a simple, fast and child-friendly way to cook fish. It has always been one of my favorites, whether made with potatoes, macaroni or shellfish like here.
I love finding a decent recipe on an ad because building posts like this one chalenge both the foodlover and the designer in me. And old ads are always more fun to work with because the illustrations usually are drawings like this superb watercolour and not photos – Ted

Bring out the goodness – with wine
This chicken fricassee can start you on a test of some pleasurable eating. You serve the chicken steaming hot. Then pour a glass of California Sauterne or an other good white wine, well chilled – and taste the wine and food together.
A traditional Norweginan lamb roast recipe from dinmat.no
The autumn’s fresh lamb with fresh herbs is a great combination. And potatoes that cook in the oven with the roast get a lovely taste that definitely will be a delight for the palate.
A Scandinavian dinner classic found on rema.no
We associate these delicious, small frikadelles first and foremost with the Danes, but they are popular all over Scandinavia. The name, on the other hand, came via Germany, probably from Italian fritto, and refers to the frikadelles being cooked in a frying pan.
This dish can be made in two different ways, either with thin slices of veal or with ground veal. The recipe calls for no boiled potaoes which must have been considered both daring and chic in Norway back in the early sixties when potatoes still was an absolute dinner staple.
The amount of sauce is generous in this recipe because it is nice to have some for the pork when it is served. To get a little smokey flavor, a handful of wet hickory chips can sprinkled on the coals.
