Northern Sea Passage

In this episode, Andreas investigates what the sea and land can offer while travelling north on the Norwegian Coastal Express. Andreas uses food produce he finds along the way, an apple-stuffed roast of lamb in the lush fjords of western Norway, and in the bacalao capital of the north he makes a dish with the dry and salted cod. When everybody is asleep Andreas serves artic char, a late bite to the crew onboard the ship. On the fields of Troms the day after, he makes a plain potato dish with the taste of autumn and as main dish before arriving in Kirkenes. Andreas makes luxurious dumplings with reindeer meat inspired by the Sami people and the Russian influences of the north east of the country.
