Swedes • Swedes are a hybrid resulting From cross- breeding a turnip and a cabbage. They were developed in the 1600s in Sweden but have found their way around the world. Swedes have a delicate flavour and can be eaten raw if fresh and very young. Older swedes can be mashed, stir-fried, roasted, steamed or baked. They also make a great addition to soups or stews because they absorb surrounding flavours so well. As a warm winter treat, swedes go really well when combined with butternut pumpkin or sweet potato, mashed with butter and topped off with nutmeg and black pepper.
Karjalanpiirakka • Karjalanpiirakka is a popular Finnish food that originated in the region of Karelia. It is made using a pastry that is a mixture of rye and spelt flours. The fillings were barley and talkkuna (a mixture of roasted barley, oats, rye and pea flour) however in the 1800s the mixture began to be played with and other ingredients were brought to the dish. Today karjalanpiirakka consists of the rye pastry crust filled with rice pudding and then topped with egg butter. It can be eaten as breakfast, as a snack, or as a perfect accompaniment to a spicy soup.

Grog • Although “grog” has become a generic term for alcohol in modern Australia, it is in fact a specific drink that originated in north Germany during medieval times. In the 18th century, grog became a favoured drink on board ships of the English Royal Navy and today it is still popular in mountain skiing regions of Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Essentially, today grog is made with boiling water and then an alcoholic base of perhaps apple Cider or cognac. The water is added to the cider and then mixed with lemon juice, cloves and cinnamon. Some recipes also include sugar, but that is a matter of taste (and health).

SPICY SOUPS • It's a guess, but it is believed that the first soup was made around 20,000 years ago. This date is assumed because we think that as soon as humans made mud vessels or clay pots, they started boiling their food in water to make a delicious and simultaneously warming dish. Written evidence tells us that soups were being made at least 6000 years ago and that a variety of ingredients were being used. If you want to add to the warm temperature of a soup, there is nothing nicer than adding a little culinary spice, so here are some delicious spicy soup ideas including: creamy jalapeňo popper soup; Thai chicken and coconut soup; cauliflower soup with parmesan croutons; beef pho; chicken enchilada soup; Mexican corn soup; and mushroom and pepperberry soup.
