Many years ago when I first arrived to this cold corner of the world only made livable by the warm Gulf Stream waters, finding an avocado gave me so much joy. Vegetables were expensive and with little variety. Cucumbers were sliced almost see though thin and placed sparsely on open bread slices with a tin layer of some spread. Once I saw a women cut a cucumber in half. Yes it was possible to buy half a cucumber and the store kindly provided the knife. Maybe she could not think of what to do with a whole cucumber, I thought. Chinese cabbage was the lettuce on hamburgers.Even though iceberg salad was available, it was only available in larger cities.

Traditional Norwegian cooking seems to have been forgotten. There are very few places to enjoy traditional food. I do not think I exaggerate when I say that about 80 % of what is served in Norway if factory precooked food. I have found that even restaurant claiming to be of high standard serve vaccumpacked precooked potatos.

I am happy to say that things are  changing.  Oslo has become a very diverse city. With quite a divers and interesting variety of ingredients. I wish to not only share with you what I discover in different shops around Oslo but also to explore the traditional dishes that the four season bring.
