What should have been a 14 month cruise from Norway to the Caribbean and back again turned out quite differently thanks to Covid. Now firmly on the right side of 2021, it was time to wrap up our journey!
What a better way to showcase our wonderful Norwegian winter vegetables than this warming, rustic soup? Deeply charred and seared means deeply satisfying, and packed with flavors!
One of the things I found really challenges when introducing more and more vegetarian and vegan food to our diets was how the hell do I make a great, satisfying stock? Turns out it is FAR easier than a meat based!
I have never in my life seen so many misconceptions about a Norwegian dish as I have with Rømmegrøt. Some place in time, some place in North America, a seed was planted, and it developed to THE BIG NORTH AMERICAN LIE.
I’ve always liked the Norwegian Riskrem, which basically means creamed rice. But when I met Lea, I was introduced to the – ahem – superior Danish Risalamande. Here’s how you make yours!
Ribbe, or juleribbe is one of the most iconic dishes in the traditional Norwegian kitchen. Made from pork belly, the goal is the juiciest meat with the crispiest rind. This method is by far the easiest way of getting the most spectacularly crispy rind and mouth watering meat.
This recipe for rødkål is from my Danish mother in law. Of all the variations I’ve tried, I think this is the absolute best. And it’s super easy too!

Truth been told, she always made poppy seed horns, not bread or buns, but her grandson (that would be me) is a lazy SOB. Regardless, and however you shape them, this is super soft and fluffy bread, and perfect for a great sandwich!
Norway has never produced wine, so Gløgg with wine came from further south. Apples on the other hand…made with hard cider, apple brandy, vanilla, cardamom and citrus, this is a fantastic treat that warms the soul!
