    How to Cook dishes from Norway

    Norway Much of Norway's land is either mountaineous or wilderness. Additionally, the country has a very long coastline and a long tradition of seafaring. As a result, traditional Norwegian cuisine tends to emphasize game and fish. Modern Norwegian cuisine has continued these traditions, but also introduced dishes brought into the country from abroad.

    Some popular Norwegian recipes and dishes include:
    • Fårikål - Mutton stew with cabbage. It is traditionally served with potatoes boiled in their skins.

    • Gravlaks - Salmon cured in sugar and salt, and seasoned with dill. Sometimes herbs and spices are used to flavor the dish.

    • Pinnekjøtt - Salted and dried smoked lamb's ribs. The ribs are rehydrated then steamed, and served with potato and mashed rutabaga. It is traditionally eaten at Christmas in western Norway.

    • Rakfish - Trout or char (another type of fish) fermented for two or three months, and eaten without cooking. It is usually served sliced with lefse (Norwegian flatbread made from potato, flour, and milk or cream), almond potato and raw red onion. Rakfish is not recommended for pregnant women, or people with a reduced immune defense.

    • Reinsdyrsteik - Reindeer steak.

    Selected as one of the New York Times best cookbooks of Fall 2018

Berg is a self-taught cook, and her simple and charming approach focuses on seasonal food prepared without a lot of fuss.

Each chapter focuses on a different aspect of Norwegian food culture--foraging, fishing, and farming; hunting, harvesting, and camping; baking, grilling, and frying. Along the way, Berg comments on the unique pleasures of Nordic life as she tends to her chickens, explores the outdoors, or sets a welcoming table. Berg is both inviting and entertaining as she weaves her own experiences into each recipe, delivering a beautiful collection of good food and great living from the heart of Norway.
