Spain has Jamon Iberico, Italy has Parma ham, and Norway has Fenalår; one of my absolute favorite kinds of cured meats. It’s incredibly flavorful, and actually pretty easy to make yourself too!
Another staple in the traditional Norwegian kitchen, the Flatbrød, an unleavened, wafer thin and crispy bread that was the sustenance for centuries. We still love it to this day!
Fiskegrateng is proper Norwegian comfort food, on par with mac and cheese, and was one of my absolute favorite dinners as a kid. This recipe is for both the classic version, and my own little twist, so read on!
Here’s a pizza recipe with the dark, rustic flavors of the North! Packed with umami and layers of smoke, this is anything but a boring vegetarian pizza!
Tex Mex inspired pizzas, especially here up in Norway, tend to be really weird, and with “taco spice” and burnt tortilla chips, they’re more like a parody than an actual representation of the Mexican flavors. I’m neither Tex nor Mex, but this hits the right spots for me!
We LOVE pizza bianca. They are super quick and easy to make since there’s no tomato sauce involved, and they are so, so tasty! Here’s one of our potato pizza recipes with robust flavors of the North!
This summery pizza is one of the simplest that I make. But with its mild flavors from the fresh mozzarella paired with the charred zucchini , the fresh tarragon and zing from the pink peppercorns it’s incredibly flavorful.
One of my absolute favorite things to make is pizza. This sauce is a improved and simplified version of the one I came in 3rd place with in the Norwegian Pizza Championship in 2009.
Very few things are as American as a fat burger. First created in America in 1900 by Louis Lassen, a Danish immigrant, it is only fitting that a Norwegian with a Danish wife does his own take on the gastronomic classic!
For me, this is one of the ultimate Norwegian summer classics. Fresh caught mackerel with crispy seared skin, creamy, tangy sauce, lovely butter steamed in-season green cabbage – and a metric shitload of dill.
