A
  • A culinary shopping bag (March 14th 2010)
    This weekend my sister is traveling to Copenhagen, without me! We've had a tradition these last years, that is to have at least one trip to Copenhagen during spring. When in Copenhagen, I love to do some serious food shopping.

  • A delicious pork and chicken dinner (October 21st 2010)
    You have been to work, and you're tired, in fact so tired that you have no energy to prepare your dinner. If you're lucky you have a well stocked supermarket close to where you live.

  • A great dinner party - menu (April 5th 2010)
    Here is the menu to a meal I'll arrange in the recent future. Recipes will come here on Enjoy Food & Travel
  • A seafood still-life at Jake's (March 7th 2010)
    Look at this selection of delicious seafood for sale at Jake's Seafood in Hull MA. No wonder why New England is a Mecca for lovers of fresh fish and shellfood

  • A Tunisian feast (April 1st 2010)
    My good friend and Enjoy Food & Travel food-writer loves the Maghreb. Tunisian cuisine was on the menu, as we enjoyed a great food party in his downtown studio the other day, and he certainly did not let his guests down.

  • Al Fez couscous - instant Moroccan flavours (April 12th 2010)
    I am not fond of fast solution, but was tempted when I saw a packet marked Authentic Moroccan spiced couscous" in the shelf at one of the better stocked supermarkets in Oslo.
B
  • Baklava and other Turkish pastries (February 13th 2010)
    If you have a sweet tooth, Turkey is certainly the place to go! Here you can get pastry and cakes that surpass anything you may have tasted in sweetness.
  • Bridgewater MA: More grub for hockey mams (January 15th 2010)
    September 25th 2009, I, my cousin, and her kids went to Bridgewater MA for a game of hockey and American footie! That meant sports and grub, hockey mum style, ringside. - chicken and American chop suey made by a Russian cook. Only in America!
C
  • Cold gazpacho - ideal for a hot summer (June 28th 2010)
    Gazpacho comes from Andalusia in southern Spain and the recipe is said to have been brought here by the Arabs. Originally it was made without the tomato, consisting of stale bread, garlic, olive oil, salt and vinegar.

  • Common purslane (July 23rd 2010)
    Common purslane originates from Asia, but is now cultivated around the world. It is regarded as an invasive species in the US after it was taken there by the settlers. In Norway it was widely cultivated, but is hardly used or even known now.

  • La Cucina Calabrese (July 28th 2010)
    I am a real fan of Italy and its food, but until now I didn’t know the southern parts of the boot-shaped country too well. That changed this year when I spent two heavenly weeks in the charming Calabrian town of Tropea (situated on the knuckle of the big toe if we stick to the boot analogy).
E
  • English "bangers" for breakfast (May 28th 2010)
    Every Sunday I have a decent Norwegian breakfast. Bacon, eggs, and if available, canned tomato beans. A real truckers breakfast that will leave you satisfied well beyond lunch. My friend Dagfinn prepared another treat for breakfast a few weeks ago - English sausages.
F
  • Feskekörka, Göteborg (August 13th 2010)
    Feskekörka is the impressive fish market in Göteborg, Sweden. It means the Fish Church, referring to its unusual architectural features. A visit here is a joy for lovers of fish and other seafood.

    Many years ago, when I was a student and constantly low on cash, I once ruined six perfectly good eggs in a late night attempt to master the art of poaching.
I

  • Italian Pancetta: (January 22nd 2010)
    As I left after a day in Copenhagen last spring, I had done my fair share of grocery shopping. Among delicacies I placed in my trolley, were two packages of pancetta, high quality Italian bacon.
M
  • Mmmm - Currywurst (January 8th 2010)
    My friend Dagfinn Koch introduced me to Currywurst, when I visited him in Lübeck some years ago.

  • Moroccan cuisine (February 14th 2010)
    I loved the Moroccan cuisine. I found a cooking based on a fascinating, eclectic mix of ingredients. Meats prepared with dried fruits, cinnamon, and fiery spices long roasted in rustic tagines.
P
  • Perennial herbs in my country garden (May 5th 2010)
    A hard winter is over, and I have found that all my perennial herbs have survived the harsh conditions and have started to sprout.

  • Pytt i panna! (October 7th 2010)
    Pyttipanna is a Swedish/Norwegian classic. This leftover dish is by no means unique.
S

    At Milorad Zagorka at Saluhallen you find yourself in sausage heaven - in an Eastern European sausage heaven!

    I went to Centra Majorstuen, my favourite supermarket yesterday. It was obvious that white asparagus were in season, as you could choose from fresh white Belgian sprouts in abundance for only NOK 19 per kilo (2,50 EUR).
