Grain for Food
new scandinavian cooking

Cereals are a staple food in Scandinavia, so Andreas visits Sokna in Eastern Norway - one of the few places in the country where farmers are able to grow wheat, barley and rye. Andreas makes sourdough bread with homemade butter and baked pigeon. Like most Scandinavians, he uses cereals to make a porridge that, like risotto, is cooked with vegetable stock and duck breast.

Episode Duration: 26 minutes and 10 seconds
