Can anyone recommend a Norwegian cookbook in English translation? I'm looking for something that covers 'home cooking' rather than any specialized area - perhaps an updated equivalent of my mother's forbidding-looking Stor Kokebok. So far I have only mastered the Norwegian for milk and sugar which won't get me very far in the kitchen. What I really want to tackle is 'Kylling med tomater' which sounds as if it involves murderous tomatoes but probably doesn't.

Thanks for the laugh, simon. Wink

"Kylling med tomater" appears to translate as Chicken with tomatoes according to this translation utility: http://www.tranexp.com:2000/InterTran?url=http%3A%2F%2F&type=text&text=Kylling+med+tomater&from=eng&to=nor If you can't find a cookbook, perhaps it will be helpful and, to the extent that it's not, I'm guessing it will provide a laugh or two as well.

I don't know a thing about Norwegian cooking or Norwegian cookbooks, however, I did find a Norwegian section in my beloved and ancient Womans' Day Encyclopedia of Cookery. It has a few dozen recipes including Appetizers & Soups; Fish; Meat; Vegetables & Salads; Sauces; Breads & Pancakes; and Desserts, Cakes & Cookies.

Meat, I'm sorry to say, includes Reinsdyrsteik (Saddle of Reindeer) but not a single recipe for chicken.

I got my WDEofC at a used cookbook store. If you're interested in looking for it, Vol. 8 has the Norwegian food. Or, if you're exceedingly patient and want, I could pass along some of these recipes. Got a fax # you'd care to PM me?

I'm sorry and surprised to say that the sections on Danish, Finnish and Swedish cooking also lacked a single recipe for chicken! Shocked
