Recipe - Ropa Vieja - ish

I don't think that we use enough cinnamon in savoury cooking in 'our' cuisine here in northern Europe. Other cuisines quite merrily uses it so I think we should at least try to add it a bit more often. You might have guessed it by now - today's recipe contains cinnamon.

Recipe - Cabbage and Pork Mince bake

Yet another Swedish dish, this one is known as kålpudding in Swedish. This one is also from the array of dishes known as husmanskost in Sweden.

Recipe - Oven Raggmunk

This is a classic Swedish recipe, something we would put into the husmanskost category. Husmanskost is basically what we'd call your classic day to day dishes, what you'd expect to get at school or at one of the many lunch restaurants that are around.

Quick Tip - Fransk Hotdog

Fransk is Danish, as well as Swedish and Norwegian, for French. For me this little meal is very closely associated with Denmark and I guess the lesser Swedes as I call them called it French Hotdog due to the fact that it is served in a baguette.

Recipe - Chicken Rice Bake

This dish didn't really have an recipe when I started. It was cooked from distant memories, we're talking 30 years or so since I last had it. In the end it didn't end up too far from being how I remembered it.

Recipe - Steak Tartare

Steak Tartare is one of my all time favourite dishes, if I see it on the menu there will have to be another very good reason on the menu for me not to order it.
