The Little European Fish Book – Norwegian Breakfast

http://pictures.seafood.noOnce upon a time travellers on Norwegian Railways sleeper trains were handed special tickets by the train chief.

‘These are for your breakfast, go to the hotel across from the station,’ the chief would explain to bemused travellers.

The sight on arrival in the grand hall of the grand hotel was a grand breakfast, an assortment of hot and cold foods that had no rival anywhere in the world. Sadly this tradition has lapsed.

On the sleeper trains between Oslo, the capital of Norway, and Bergen, Stavanger and Trondheim and between Trondheim and Bodø in the far north, a modest breakfast is served onboard.

The grandiose buffet breakfasts are becoming a thing of the past, but some hotels are clinging to tradition by presenting modest grand buffets. Think of every possible breakfast food that is served across Europe, add the Norwegian love for loaves and fishes, cheeses and crispbreads, bacon and eggs, pickles and potatoes, and then something you never imagined.
