Trysil’s Winter Wonderland

Tareq’s visit Trysil in central Norway marks the third winter episode we have shot in this wonderful country – and next season we’re going to aim for the a summer shoot. Trysil is best known for it’s amazing mountains and ski resorts, where life was hard thanks to hard nature and months of cold weather. But spirited Norwegians tend to make the best out of whatever they are given, which Tareq discovered in this episode. Enccounters with a cheesemaker still using traditional methods, a new bakery who works ecologically and a taste of the local delicacy, fermented lamb.

Time to cook down the copper mine

We’ve hit up some amazing locations as part of Nordic Cookery – preparing food on snowy mountains, going out to remote islands, taking helicopter tours over the North Atlantic… but the episode we have shot in Røros, Norway was a first for Nordic Cookery. Røros is a Norwegian town built on the back of the rich copper mines in the area, mined since the mid-17th century. Although they are not being mined anymore, Tareq and our crew managed to go down, meters below, and cook a recipe as part of this new episode. Røros has got it figured out when it comes to local, organic food – a collective of food producers are renowned across Norway, with Michelin-starred chefs in Oslo swearing by products from this area.
