a cook book with international equivalents

Some years ago some folks I know got together via email and created a text cook book. Someone in Germany made it into a html version.

Besides various foods, it also has a page of food/recipe equivalents so this could be useful for authors as well.

what a good idea! I have hosted a bunch of different exchange students over the years, and the frustration that ensues when a kid cannot tell you what a certain food is...welll... you can imagine. there were several stumbling blocks, but when a Dutch girl I had wanted a stew with "swedes" in it, I about went nuts trying to figure out what they were!

Swedes? Perfectly normal name around these parts. What do you call them?

In the U.S. they are called rutabagas, but I have to say that "swedes" (or Swedish turnips) is a more pleasant sounding name. "Rutabaga" is derived from the Swedish word, rotabagge.

Oh, that's what a "rutabaga" is, is it? I've come across the word in books, but never known what it was. Thanks .

and now you can imagine my consternation when I had an exchange student hungry for swedes, and I was pretty darn sure she hadn't gone all Alferd Packer on me!

Indeed! Just like American tourists to Britain view the old favourite, "Spotted Dick" with some consternation .

I hate to say this... but I thought rutabagas were a myth or a joke my relatives played on me as a kid... until I saw them in large cans in a supermarket 'Diced Rutabagas'. Evidently very little food value, mostly used to fill you up so you don't realize you are hungry.

@kindlekitten, many out there seldom have the backbone to complain directly. They just want to make you miserable by 'being concerned' over nothing.

The only thing I've ever had swedes (rutabagas) with, I think, is mixed with mashed potato. I'm not aware of having eaten them in any other form.

I've had them diced and roasted (not too bad), and mashed with whisky and butter (very nice)

I've never seen them canned! (thank goodness my Mom probably would have gotten them) she used to serve them at Thanksgiving and no one like them but we were obliged to have our "no thank you" helping of 3 bites. *shudder*

baked potatos for me.

How large of cans for the diced rutabagas ?

The large restaurant type cans. Called 'number 10' in the US. No idea what the equivalent would be elsewhere.
