In today's episode, Andreas investigates the great variety of inland Norway, the most productive farmland in the country. The episode starts in the mountains, where he makes a dish flavored by the mountains: veal liver with mushrooms, heather honey and heather oil. In the local town bakery he uses yesterday's bread to make a toast-infused ice cream. For main course he serves a Norwegian pork roll, with apples, dill and fennel.

In today's episode Andreas visits one of them, Hovelsrud, where he combines innovation, tradition and world class vegetables. He uses fresh herbs to make an egg-free mayonnaise, combines baked rutabaga and local vendace roe, and makes scones with yellow and red beets.
