Do you often end up with leftovers of root vegetables like carrots, celeriac, potatoes etc.? We often do, and we hate to throw away food. In Norway people throw away one fifth of all the food they purchase. One fifth that would have been completely edible. What a shame. To help prevent this we give you this recipe you can make of common leftover vegetables.
If Germans would be able to settle on one national dish, it could easily be argued to be currywurst. Unfortunately they can't agree due to regional differences in that vast country. However, we were not in doubt of what to make when we invited over the guys from #KulTour for a German evening. New readers might want to check this post and this about the summer adventure Andrea is having with the TV2 film production team along the Tour de France route.
Two weeks ago we had some smashing friends over for dinner and we made them an almost complete Peruvian meal. We say almost because the first dish was a Croque Monsieur. We simply could not resist to use the Handwerk sourdough bread for something. The dessert , mango pie, we already posted a while back, and now we give you the recipe for the main dish of the evening; Lomo Saltado.
Today is "Steak & BJ day" and we're giving all you girls out there the perfect steak recipe for a successful celebration. The BJ you will have to sort out yourself, but check out VICE's 101 guide if you need some "hands-on" tips.
We got our meat from Anni's Pølsemakeri as usual. A premium entrecôte. By now our kitchen closets are filled to the rafters with spices from Il Buongustaio. We decided to make Hasselback potatoes and a ramson mayo to go with it. Simple. Perfect.
Bugs Bunny was screaming to us from the meat counter at Anni's Pølsemakeri in Mathallen. "What's Cookin' Doc!? This ain't wabbit huntin' season." And so it was that we ended up with a rabbit in our bag. Then, as we walked outside of Mathallen we discovered a brand new spice shop that had opened; Il Buongustaio. The wonderfully enthusiastic Janni made us a special spice blend perfect for the small jumping creature.
In one of our many trips to Mathallen in Oslo we came across this new brand of Danish products called Nordisk Køkken. We immediately fell in love with many of the oils and condiments they were selling. However, we also had to try their "kartoffel" soup, or potato soup. We usually like to make stuff like that from scratch, but this looked very tempting and the brand seemed to be very focused on quality ingredients. It is all organic and natural without gluten, preservatives or artificial additives.
Since we wouldn't be making the soup ourselves we decided to pimp it! With lobster!
A very special occasion before Christmas called for a very special meal. Our friends Glen and Ingrid returned to Norway from their current home in Sydney, and we invited them along with Mathias and Kine (heavy lifters, heavy eaters) to dine in Nydalen. What better opportunity to whip out some of those exclusive products from Matbazaren.no again? The following recipes are somewhat complex and need to be explained in detail to ensure a good results.

Last weekend Anders' parents were in town and we took them to Gutta på Haugen to secure the Saturday night dinner. Anders wanted to cook with his dad. Ever since Anders was a kid his favorite meal if he can choose is a juicy piece of meat with Béarnaise sauce. Gutta's Entrecôte is a perfect choice, and we also got some French unsalted butter and goose fat for the potatoes.
This creamy butternut squash soup with shredded chicken is perfect for cold winter evenings and rainy Sundays. As always, good ingredients are key. We bought Røros milk, butternut squash and the other vegetables at Gutta på Haugen. Our favorite gourmet shop in Oslo.http://www.twofoodieseating.com/uploads/4/2/5/9/42590049/2425523_orig.jpg
Ají de Gallina - "The chili of the hen". Traditionally this Peruvian dish is made with hen, which gives a different taste, but our recipe is with chicken. We used chicken because it is more available, and you are actually just supposed to use the breast fillets. Good quality hen can be hard to find.
