Becoming a Chef Part 01 : The Story So Far

Becoming a Chef Part 01 : The Story So Far

My love for cooking has always been fueled by the love for the produce. If I hadn’t grown up where I did, in northern Norway, I don’t know if I would be on the path I am today. From a very young age, my parents […]

Norwegian Fish Gratin

Norwegian Fish Gratin

Norwegian fish gratin is kind of our weird take on mac and cheese. Originally potatoes were used, but sometime after macaroni was introduced to Norwegians in the early 1900’s, we switched over. Another weird thing is the use of curry powder, which isn’t always used […]

Fried Wolf Fish with Tempura Kale, Cauliflower Puree & Mulled Wine Sauce

Fried Wolf Fish with Tempura Kale, Cauliflower Puree & Mulled Wine Sauce

Wolf fish might not be the most common salt water fish to eat, but it is among my all-time favorites. The meat is full of great texture while still being tender. It also caramelizes beatifully when pan-fried in butter. They are also great on the grill.

Smoked Salmon Tartare with Fennel Ice Cream

Norwegian salmon is some of the best in the world, and it is our biggest export to the rest of the world. But farm-raised salmon is one thing and wild salmon is a whole other thing. Even here in Norway, a lot of the farmed […]

Crispy Pork Belly, Apple Puree & Honey Mustard Vinaigrette

Crispy Pork Belly, Apple Puree & Honey Mustard Vinaigrette

Pork and apples go well together, I’ve known that ever since I was a kid. I learned it from from the French comic “Asterix”, that I was an avid reader of in my younger years. I still remember reading it in bed at night, the very last page was always a feast, usually celebrating the Gauls defeating the Romans.

Even if it was just an artists rendering, the food and especially the grease dripping roast boar would make my mouth water, and it would often prompt me to get out of bed and get a snack. 20 years later I still use that knowledge I learned on the last page of an old comic, Pork and apples go well together.

My take on Fårikål, lamb with cabbage.

My take on Fårikål, lamb with cabbage.

I thought for a while what the first recipe here on Nordic Provisions should be, but I realized pretty quickly that it had to be fårikål. Autumn has finally come, which is my favorite time of year. It’s also the time of year when we […]
