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

Ginger Chicken /Ingefærkylling

A spicy chicken recipe found in “Fjærfe” (Poultry)
published by Hjemmets Kokebokklubb in 1982ingefærkylling_post_thumb[2]_thumb

Edible rootsThe history of Ginger goes back over 5000 years when the Indians and ancient Chinese considered it a tonic root for all ailments. While Ginger originated in Southeast Asia, it has a long history of being cultivated in other countries. At an early date it was exported to Ancient Rome from India. It was used extensively by the Romans, but almost disappeared from the pantry when the Roman Empire fell. After the end of the Roman Empire, the Arabs took control of the spice trade from the east. Ginger became quite costly like many other spices. In medieval times it was commonly imported in a preserved form and used to make sweets.

Filled Avocado with Strawberry Dressing / Fylt Avocado med Jordbærdressing

Most of us come across recipes for stuffed avocado from time to time, but it is usually as appetizers stuffed with shrimp salad or similar fillings. But I must say this variant was at least new to me, I even find it a little hard to see if it is a starter or a dessert – Ted

Chicken Grand Duchesse / Kylling Grand Duchesse

A delicious chicken recipe found in “Fjærfe På Menyen” (Poultry On The Menu) published by Den Norske Bokklubben in 1984Chicken Grand Duchesse / Kylling Grand Duchesse

I haven’t the faintest idea about what grand duchess it is who has given name to this dish, but it is at least reasonable to assume that she was fond of chicken. Neither do I know if grande duchess salad, grand duchess cocktail and grand duchess consomme is credited to the same lady or if it is common among great chefs to dedicate dishes to grand duchesses without bothering to tell us which grand duchess. Whatever, the chicken dish in question does look absolutely delicious – Ted 🙂
