Today I went to the Norwegian Cookbook Museum together with a friend who is a very good cook.
We had a very interesting guided tour, not only to see the new and old cook books, old menus (written in French) from famous old hotels in Christiania (the name used for Oslo long time ago), but also to see the beginning of wine production.
They have already more than 6000 books, with more to come.
They also have a very professional kitchen, a restaurant as well as a auditorium for lectures etc.
The museum is part of the university here in Stavanger, and the university also provides hotel management courses for people who want to work in that branch.
Our guide was Mr. Helge Jørgensen, a gentleman and an Associate Professor, who has many years in the branch, and who for years have been a real enthusiast in getting the museum up to running!
Great to be there!
So which chef is your favorite, or what cookbook is your favorite??
