The last Thursday in September every year is celebrated in Norway as Fårikål Day. This is the day when this very traditional dish (and what some call the national dish of Norway) is eaten in masse all over the country.
Fårikål is a one-pot dish comprised of skinned potatoes, cabbage, whole black peppercorns and mutton (aka meat from an older sheep). The aforementioned items are stacked in a single pot with the addition of salt, then boiled until cooked. Although maybe not the prettiest of dishes, fårikål is Norwegain soul food at its cosiest.
