    I knew that would get your interest! Just watching Rick Stein in Iceland , have been there myself to see the midnight sun, and the geezers!

    well you take a sheep head and marinate it in wild blueberries and dried herbs, oil and leave for four days!  Stick in the oven for two hours at 175 degs! Enjoy !  :yahoo:

    apparently after 2 hours it’s lovely, with quite a game flavour !

    Yep, they’re strange geezers in Iceland, but they really know how to do synchronised clapping.

    I tried both – the sheep’s head in Norway and the fermented shark in Iceland. Thank goodness the hosts were caring enough to offer plenty of Aquavit (in Scandinavia!) to wash down the taste as quickly as possible assuming that non-Scandinavians might not have the stomach for it.

    Exactly , that’s what Rick Stein had a large glassful of Aquivat, it looked pretty strong stuff, it needed to be!  They did seem to have some strange evil tasting stuff! I loved the Swedish Smorgasbord , that is fabulous, the last one I was at had loads of different breads too! A delight  :yahoo:

    In Norway the eyeball was eaten too except for the small black pupil. So were the ear and tongue. Everything was served with potatoes and mashed  turnip cabbage. Still, the evening was brilliant thanks to the phantastic hosts. Remembering that I have to quickly get a shot of Monkey Shoulder. To you, Erling and Liv.

    Specially, when they are paying one, lots of dosh BV, the delight was difficult to synthesize, but a Real Man, has to do what a Real Man has to do, with hungry mouths to feed at home :cry:

    Now then, Bollox, there’s a treat!!!!!!!!!!!! :-(

    I suppose every nation has a number of dishes that are considered inedible by visitors. Even though I love to try unkown food, I haven’t had the guts to order a full Scottish breakfast …

    Can’t judge it, Bill. I didn’t want to appear impolite to my Scottish hosts by ordering a full plate and then sending back half of it. So I stuck with the things I knew I would eat.

    What I shied away from were, I am sure you guessed it, black pudding and haggis. As we have similar dishes where I come from I didn’t use any excuses as I was almost certain I would not eat it. I love trying different dishes, but I normally have reservations against food made from entrails.

    Just ‘rediscovered’ the thread :-)

    My local favourite ‘eatery’ in Questembrt 56, does some interesting things, the ones we have tried, have been really good.

    So, next time he is doing ‘Tete de Veau’, we are going to give it a ‘bash’, really popular round here, hope it’s not like me auld Mams ‘sheep heeds’ ;-)

    Apparently sheep can remember a human face for up to two years, shame people have to eat the poor creatures.
