Grandma's Recipes

Recipes from my Grandmother, Liv Hammervold Engelschiøn, recipe books.

COMING SOON: A page dedicated to my grandmothers recipes! I’ve recently discovered her beautiful hand written recipe books and I’ve been spending my evenings diving into them. I’ve tested and tried some of the recipes and they are exactly how I remember them when she cooked and baked. Why change something that works? Stay tuned for a whole new category!

This is a dish that has been with me through my whole life, and I’ve always loved it. This dish is widely known in the Nordic region, but normally served with a ‘normal’ mayonaise and a slice of lemon.

I want to share my grandmothers recipe for her wonderful rye bread. Dark and slightly sweet, making it the perfect open sandwhich bread. I love topping it with caviar, eggs, salt and pepper.

Our cuisine and traditional recipes are known to be simple and humble – as this recpe; blueberries in cream. A simple recipe that honors years of tradition and a dish our ancestors have eaten for many years before me.
