Forikol Traditional Norwegian Meal

(love the plate :-))
This traditional Norwegian Meal is from one of my fellow Postcrossing Postcard enthusiasts. Radek is from Norway (now living in Manchester, England) and was nice enough to share this delicious picture on his Facebook Pictures.

"Fårikål is a traditional Norwegian dish, consisting of pieces of mutton with bone, cabbage, whole black pepper and a little wheat flour, cooked for several hours in a casserole, traditionally served with potatoes boiled in their jackets. The dish is typically prepared in early autumn. Fårikål is originally a dish from the Western part of Norway, but is now enjoyed in all parts of the country. On 24 September 2009 is Fårikål Feast. Fårikål Feast Day is celebrated on the last Thursday in September each year." from Wikipedia.

Norwegian cuisine in its traditional form is based largely on the raw materials readily available in Norway and its mountains, wilderness and coast. It differs in many respects from its continental counterparts with a stronger focus on game and fish. from Wikipedia

I'm always fascinated by the different cultures, especially our vastness of food! Yum~
