Greetings from Norway.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hello.
I'm a norwegian linguistics student, but when I'm not hovering over scientific papers I like to cook. I especially enjoy everything that involves chicken, seafood and meat with honey; but I must admit I'm generally fairly unrefined in my tastes.
I'm hoping that this is a good place to find some recipies for special occations, as well as for everyday meals.
Looking foreward to learning from you all.

Hello WickedD and welcome to Chef Talk. There's a lot here for home cooks like you and me to learn and enjoy.

Although I've never been to Norway, my husband has. He visited Horten for business a couple of times. Unfortunately, both times he had no time to enjoy the seaside down much, especialy the second time, which was in winter.

What do you enjoy cooking? Are there traditional dishes you make, or do you prefer to be more adventurous in the kitchen?

We hope you visit often to read the articles, etc. and to take part in the discussions.

├śnskevelkommen til Kokk Samtale ! (I cheated and used a translation site. :D)

As a student I'm forced to live out the stereotype of having an adventurous cousine, mostly focusing on norweginized (read: less spiced) south asian foods and some american dishes. I even had a month of purely vegetarian cooking, which left me hungry and fatigued.
I did however grow up with my grandma and learned a lot from her, so when nobody is looking I make sure that I make traditional Norwegian meals with fish and lamb.

Last april I had four girls visiting from china, korea and thailand. It was fun having such exotic guests, and finally I was rewarded for being able to cook the national dish. My flat mates managed to compaired my cooking with that of their grandmothers (:blush:), and even the asian girls agreed that it was tasty, and that I probably was a better cook than them (:blush: but also :D). Now, they were probably (mostly) just being polite, but flattery works on me like; well mostly like it works on everybody else :p

Cool, Levi McDaniel, I hope you'll have a great time.
Just remember, it's polite to take off your shoes when you come inside a private house :)
And remember, swedish food can be very good but try the Kurdish/swedish cousine. Especially the Durum Kebab can be awsome :smoking:

Sry :blush:, didn't mean to imply I thought you were rude.
It's just from what I've seen on american TV (my only source of information on american houses) it seems like it's common practice to walk around inside with shoes on. Thought it could just be different customs.

So, you don't walk around inside with shoes on? :suprise:
