I am sharing a food memory tonight to honor my Aunt Martha who passed away. Today was her funeral. I could not be there since the funeral was in Norway and due to Covid-19 it is not possible for me to partake. So to honor my aunts memory and life I have baked and eaten this Anise Pretzel that she used to bake. Any time I want I can in my mind smell it and remember the taste of her “Aniskringle.” I loved it and it was only when visiting her as a child I got this particular pretzel. My aunt had just turned 90 years old before Christmas. Peace and love to her memory.
It is quick and easy to make this luxurious sandwich yourself at home. Last week I suddenly felt like eating sandwiches. I started out with Norwegian Sandwiches and than continued to Club Sandwich. I had sliced meat in the freezer from my Christmas ham and even the other ingredients I needed at home. So I was exited to both make and eat my creation.
Focaccia, known and loved in Italy and abroad, is yeasted flat bread which belongs essentially to the northern shores of the Mediterranean and has its origin in classical antiquity. I love to decorate the Foccacia bread and this time I was inspired by Christmas ahead of me.
One of the first festive dishes I remember my mom making and even me helping with is Norwegian Smørbrød. Smørbrød is a traditional Norwegian treat at many festive occations. My mom would make them for homeparties, celebrations of various kinds. I recreated them like she used to make them.
As a tribute to my Mom today I am also giving attention to World Bread Day. I have baked Moms special Wheat Flour Croissants, Restaurant Style. My mothers Wheat Flower Croissants are the best. They are served with ham and cheese and heated for some seconds so the cheese melts. One Croissant is like a whole meal.
Conchas are a soft and sweet Mexican bread with a topping that resembles the surface of a seashell. This is where the Concha gets its name, since “Concha” means “shell” in Spanish.
