奧斯陸 食好嘢!

Oslo, Good Food! 

這是「甜奶飯」,是Oksana拿手好菜之一。

Oksana是我在挪威首都「奧斯陸」(Oslo)的CS Host,她來自烏克蘭,剛被公司調至奧斯陸上班,當我遇見Oksana時,她在挪威的工作簽證還未發下來,未能上工的她處於赤貧狀態,而我又立心窮遊歐洲,我倆處境非常相似,於是我們幾乎日日買餸煮飯。

Oksana其中一樣拿手好菜是「甜奶飯」,煮法與煮飯一樣,只是以奶代水,最後加糖,是烏克蘭傳統早餐。這個「甜奶飯」又再一次顛覆了我對米飯的想像,米飯在我的經驗中,一直都是正餐主食,佐飯進膳的各式餸菜都以鹹辣為主,頂多酸甜,從未試過仿如甜品似的全甜飯,但其實細味白米飯,裏頭的澱粉質的確是略略帶甜,烏克蘭人就將澱粉質的甜發揚光大,乾脆加奶加糖,變成甜膩如蜜的「甜奶飯」(我自己再加了香蕉:)。

這份甜奶飯又是旅遊帶給我的意外驚喜,以味蕾衝擊慣常預期,開啓無限可能性,最搞笑的是,雖然我身在挪威,但烏克蘭文化卻啓發了我不少,旅行真是連串奇緣呀!

 

 

This is ‘Sweet Rice Muesli’, one of Oksana’s good recipes.

Oksana is my CS Host in Oslo, capital of Norway. Oksana is a girl from Ukraine and just transferred to Oslo by her company recently. She has got a job but hasn’t got her working visa yet when I meet her. She is in a poor condition because she doesn’t have any salary yet. I was determined to use the least money to travel in Europe so we are both in a poor situation. It give us a good reason to go to the market and cook at home every day.

 

‘Sweet Rice Muesli’ is one of Oksana recipes. The cooking method is just like cooking rice but using milk instead of water and add sugar for the last step. It is a traditional breakfast in Ukraine.

My concept of rice turns totally upside-down by this ‘Sweet Rice Muesli’. Rice is a main meal and serve with salty or spicy dishes (at most sweet-sour dishes) in my past experience. I have never tasted rice sweet like dessert. The starch in the rice actually has a little sweet if tasted carefully. Ukrainians put a great emphasises on the starch sweetness and add milk and sugar in it to make a honey-sweet ‘Sweet Rice Muesli’(and I add banana too :)

 

Sweet Rice Muesli has brought me a sweet surprise and crashing my usual expectation. The funniest thing is that I am in Norway but mostly inspired by Ukrainian culture. Traveling is really a journey expect the unexpected!
