In 1940 Anne Sofie Ostvedt was a 20-year-old student at the University of Oslo when German forces invaded Norway. She wasted no time in becoming involved in the Norwegian resistance and quickly rose through the ranks to become the deputy commander of the underground intelligence-gathering resistance group XU. As a resistance leader Østvedt is among a small group of women who were top commanders of the various resistance movements throughout Europe during World War II.
Norwegian fish patties. 1lb raw skinless boneless codfish 2 1/2 cups flour 1/2 cup milk or cream 2 eggs 1 tsp cloves 1 tsp dry dill 1 tsp nutmeg 2 tsp salt 2tsp pepper 1 tsp ginger paste. Mix in blender or food processor. It will be runny:) Sautee in pan in butter until golden. Serve with potatoes and green peas. I also make a cold saus with 1 tsp Dijon mustard and 1cup 1/2 & 1/2. Salt and pepper to taste. Drizzle over warm patties. Yummy!
Norwegian Cucumber Salad (Agurksalat) from Food.com: My DBIL was born in Norway. He will only eat Cucumber Salad that is made the Norwegian way which has with sugar added. It sort of gives it a sweet/sour flavor and is very good! I've eaten it many times at my sister's home. Posted for ZWT 2010. Cooking time is refrigeration time.
