Traditional food

Traditional food

It is not only the rich artistic and cultural life of the Valley of Artists which has been conscientiously preserved for generations to come. The people of the valley are also keenly aware of their cooking traditions.

In this area, villagers have inquired into old cookery books and recipes from the turn of the century and up until today, finding many a titbit. Maybe you can be tempted by meat and soup with potato dumplings, cured meats, minced moosemeat steaklets, sour cream porridge, brown Betty with whipped cream, or waffles made of barley flour? "Rakfisk" (half-fermented trout), "kling" (a kind of griddle cake) and Sigdal's own syrup gingersnap are considered the jewel in the crown of Sigdal Cooking.

Home Made has become a phrase with a positive ring to it. Should the fancy come upon you to make some of these dishes in your own kitchen, there is a cookery book with recipes and cultural samples, and dishes that are easy to make even for the amateur.

More and more companies are now concentrating on their own production of good, home-made local food, and many of the tourist companies in the Valley of Artists have traditional fare on their menu, and it is served in a homely atmosphere.
