Lyngør is a village area on a group of small islands in the municipality of Tvedestrand in Aust-Agder county, off the southeast coast of Norway. The village is about 12 kilometres (7.5 miles) northeast of Tvedestrand city center and also 12 kilometres (7.5 miles) south of the city of Risør.
Previously a popular home for sea captains, the village is accessible only by boat, has no cars, and is known for its scenic harbour and charming wooden houses. It is recognized as one of the best-preserved communities in Europe. Most of the buildings are now summer homes, but there are about 70 permanent, year-round residents. A hugely popular destination in the summer months, it has in later years struggled to maintain a stable permanent population. The community has a sail-making factory, a few restaurants that are open during the tourist season, and a famous general store.
A French toast variation found on picturebritain.com
Last Saturday I posted about the French toast, a snack/dessert called “arme riddere” (poor knights) here in Norway. Now I’ve found that there are poor knights coming from Windsor too because the girl who runs PictureBritain writes:
I have it on relatively good authority (how good is the authority of a random website purporting to have traditional English recipes?) that this is an authentic English recipe. According to Wikipedia, “Poor Knights of Windsor” is the name applied to this dish, colloquially known in Britain as eggy bread or gypsy toast. So it’s French Toast with an English twist! It sounds delicious and pretty simple. It might not work well with all your weight-loss resolutions, but maybe you should give it a try, for Wednesday’s sake.
