Michela Chiappa is on Gower to meet and eat with a little-known community of incomers enjoying life on one of the country’s most beautiful coastlines. At the heart of the community are the Blytt-Jordens - three generations of Welsh-Norwegians. They are among several Welsh-Norwegian families settled in the area, who have only recently discovered each other.\n\nThey now regularly gather to chat in their first language and cook up traditional Norwegian delicacies from national pudding tilsorte bondepiker to hot waffles and brown cheese, and fermented fish. Michela’s keen to try and taste them all. \n\nHer guide is grandmother Sol Blytt-Jorden, who was born in Bergen but came to the UK when she was 20. Sol’s son Scott was born and bred in the UK, but now he has children of his own he’s keen to adopt some of his mother’s Norwegian traditions to pass down the next generation. The problem for Scott, a wood craftsman by trade, is that he’s better with a bandsaw than with a whisk. Can Michela and Sol transform him into a star turn in the kitchen by teaching him some delicious Scandinavian dishes?
