Andreas visits a local farm that cultivates the earth according to ecological principles. This may be unconventional today, but more and more young farmers are adopting this farming philosophy.
Liquor and Beer, or Mead, represent Norway’s only drinking traditions. The climate is too cold for growing wine grapes. Andreas starts off this episode by making his special Home Made Schnapps. The basis for this drink is pure alcohol, but blended with some of the locally grown spices and herbs, it tastes great.
Dill is one of Andreas’ favorite herbs. He never misses an opportunity to use dill in his creations. For the Dill Scented Chicken, the main course in this episode, he uses dill in several different ways and gives the chicken a real treatment. An assortment of root vegetables accompanies the chicken. And with the promise of Home-made Ice Cream with Thyme and Honey, based on products from the local farm, everything is set for a perfect dinner in the heartland of Norway.
