    Default Traditional Suppers

    The season is finally here!
    Norway's national dish is on the menu for us this weekend.
    (the national Fårikål day was this Thursday)
    Up here we call it Fårikal, but I guess Mutton and Cabbage stew works as a translation to English.

    This dish is simple as a brick, and can be made by anyone.
    Mutton, seared lightly for that wonderful Maillard effect, and Cabbage in equal amounts are layered in a big casserole, sprinkled generously with whole black peppers and a tiny sprinkling of wheat flour. Water is added until it almost covers the ingredients.

    This then simmers for a few hours on the stove.
    Served with boiled new-potatoes and the feast can begin
    A few glasses of Aquavit is a natural drink for this divine dish!

    Here is a pic of it just as it goes on the stove.

    Looks nice, but I thought lutefisk (spelling?)was the national dish.

    Thanks
    Yeah, lutefisk is also concidered to be a national dish of sorts, the problem is, not that many can stand the taste and texture of it
    The Fårikål was voted our national dish by a very popular radio show back in the seventees.


    Personally, I love both fårikål and lutefisk.

    You know it's funny that when you even try to Google "Traditional American Food" you get a ton and ambiguity and no true answers

    The only one that even comes to my mind is the "Traditional" Thanksgiving Dinner...


    That looks really good B, of course I am a pushover for Lamb or Mutton..

    as far as traditional dishes go, the main one i try to adhere to, is the dish of pork and saurkraut, with mashed potatoes, served on new years day. somewhat of a traditional PA dutch meal, i say try cause i can eat that dish just about any time. and its becoming time again for a good old batch of sausage gravy and biscuts.

    Yep, the trick is to always make twice the amount
    Fårikål is an all-weekend experience!

    Traditional suppers take on a whole new meaning if you live in a country populated by immigrants like Canada is. One good thing there is never a lack of choice with something for everyone's palate.

    Oh yes. I love fårikål. And lutefisk too.
    I had a huge plate of fårikål Thursday.
