Mashed swedes for Christmas is standard Christmas fare here, and it’s good, but why not try this for lunch:
a piece of bread,
liver paste (Norwegian & Danish brands are available here in Oslo, for
6-7 pieces of raw swedes (julienne, for those familiar with
a few rings of raw onion
a drop of good balsamico
a drop of Tabasco
a good hand of ground pepper
If you need energy, this is it!
Balsamico: You need the real sweet stuff, which costs a little more. If you have to cheat, try something cheaper and add some brown sugar.
A glass of whisky and also a sip of armagnac that was left went fine with the
pepper and all, but what I had in the way of leverpostei today was not
quite the thing together with a glass of Talisker. It was too cheap, I think, too
little taste to match the smoked moors of Scotland. Homemade or some more elaborate stuff would probably cooperate better with the liquor.
