One of the joys of the holidays and new year season is the memory of food and places from family gatherings of years ago.
I had a home-and-food memory on a recent Sunday. I was riding through the North Carolina woods under brilliant blue skies and surprisingly moderate temperatures for the first of January. I was struck with the landscape’s similarity to Northern Wisconsin during family trips of my youth (which I usually found to be crashingly boring).
At that moment, I heard a great food story on Weekend Morning Edition, and I want to share it with you.
According to the NPR story, one of the hot food trends in 2012 will be Nordic food.
Not the lutefisk (whitefish soaked in lye) and lefse (potato flatbread) that I remember from church suppers of my youth. We will be hearing about moss flavors….maybe the tempting tastes of hay!
Take a listen.
Did you grow up with the influence of Nordic cooking? We at WFAEats would love to hear your stories, recipies…..coping strategies when faced with plate of lutefisk. Just post to us, and we’ll share!
