Welcome to Arctic Grub!

This is my site of recipes, travel tips, and stories about the cuisine, history, and culture of Norway, my home country.

New York is where I call home now, but my Norwegian roots are strong and Arctic Grub is where I share my love for ‘Norge’.

Explore the blog, try out a new recipe or two, and leave me a comment to let me know how it goes. 

With love,

Norwegian Food

I write about classic Norwegian food, but I recreate traditional recipes and turn them all plant-based. None of the taste, experience, or uniqueness of Norwegian cuisine is lost, and in many cases, the dishes are improved!

Having grown up with a masterful cook as a mother and being a trained chef has its advantages—dive in to discover the flavors of the fjords!

Scandinavian Drinks

Norway has so much to offer on the drink scene: From being leaders in the craft beer industry to artisan aquavit producers, to the history of Norwegian families present in the Cognac region of France, there is a lot to explore and tell here.

Culture & History

The main reason I started this blog over seven years ago, was my hunger for learning more about the history and culture behind the Norwegian dishes I was making and had eaten over the years. I am equally passionate about sharing stories as I am about providing you with recipes. Why? Food is representative of people and learning the ‘why’ behind your meal may enrich your experience and connection to the food even further.

Travel

Dreaming of traveling to Norway to see the fjords, the midnight sun, and the northern lights? In this section, I give you insider tips and recommendations beyond the usual touristy suggestions you find everywhere. Norway is as beautiful in the winter as it is in the summer, you just need to know where to go and what to do. If you want authentic information from someone who keeps a tab on what’s happening in Norway today, check back here regularly!
