Table is a online magazine about Norwegian food. Past, present and
The first issue starts out with a rather unlikely dish-porridge, an
almost forgotten food. In Norway however it's alive and kicking, in
its many forms. It's a traditional food that still warms the insides
on a windy autumn day or sweetens a holiday gathering.
Besides recipes and articles about food there will also be articles
about cooking utensils, cookbooks and the dishes the food is served
For those visiting Norway there will be tips on where to eat, for
the busy business person as well as the adventurous tourist.
One common thread that goes throughout Norwegian cuisine past and
present is the use of nature itself as an active ingredient. It is
not uncommon for a city dweller to be out picking mushrooms an autumn
day or nettles in the spring for a favorite soup.
As your host I would like to welcome you to our magazine and thank
you for coming. We hope you will enjoy yourself.
