Hakkasteik is a very old dish from Hardanger in Norway, traditionally reserved for big feasts, weddings and so on; one of its three names, Brurasteik, translates to “Bride’s roast” and reflects how highly regarded this dish is.

Having a good plan is a great thing. Tossing them out the window is often even better. Join us on the second leg of our sail up along the magnificent Norwegian coast, and experience the brutal and dramatic scenery of Langøy!
Plans are nothing; planning is everything, said Dwight D Eisenhower back in the day. Nothing has rung quite as true the past year. Here’s how our plans for the second year in a row went to shit, but turned out magnificently regardless.
Fårikål, mutton in cabbage, is the national dish of Norway, and a true reflection of our past; piss poor farmers who made do with what we had. And we found a way to make meager magnificent with dish. Here’s the 100% authentic, traditional way, plus my own twist to the dish.
Pinnekjøtt is my favorite thing to eat in the whole world. While the Norwegian west coast is known for its Pinnekjøtt, this modern take on the classic will make the traditionalists scream for blood. Screw them.
Every spring my grandma would don her apron, yellow dishwashing gloves and take to the woods to pick stinging nettles. If you’ve never had stinging nettles before, think of it as spinach, but free, and with its incredible herbal notes, way tastier!
This is one of my favorite styles of bread for meat sandwiches. On the rare occasion that I smoke a brisket, I always make sure to also make this bread, but it is also very delicious with aged cheese for example.
We are huge fans of hand held food, be it burgers, or steambuns, or tacos. But one of those simple pleasures we keep getting back to are the sandwich. This is our “Mouthgasm BBQ smoked brisket sandwich”, so check it out!
We like to enjoy this cake with our afternoon coffee in the cockpit. A dash of crème fraiche adds a creamy freshness to it. But adding a spoonful quality vanilla ice cream certainly won’t be a disappointment either 😉
This dinner is so stupid easy it hardly constitutes for a recipe of its own, but here we go. We just love this kind of leftover dinners, and I think you will too!
