Just put on-line is the latest edition of Gastropod from New England in which I’m interviewed about the book. We talk about the original Norwegian roof top gardens, megasalads inspired by Mediterranean multispecies dishes and the origin of borscht! One of my salads is shown towards the bottom of the page! An interesting match with the other interview featured about potato diversity, particularly as the salad on the front of the book features chunks of the heirloom Norwegian/Swedish blue potato Blå Kongo (Blue Congo).
Nicolas Twilley is the one of the interviewees. You might know her from her Edible Geography blog and as a writer at the New Yorker! http://www.ediblegeography.com/
Here are some pictures of those ancient Norwegian roof top gardens:
