Dinner time

In the town of Asker, just outside Oslo, a family of four – Hanne and Cato Gjertsen and their children Zakarias (13) and Anniken (8) – has just come home after a long day at work and school. In just a couple of hours, the kids are off to football and ice hockey practice, leaving precious little time to prepare and enjoy a long-cooked meal.

"Preparing a tasty and nutritious dinner with high-quality ingredients doesn’t have to take long. Today, for instance, we are having fish soup with frozen prawns," says Cato.

The kitchen smells of freshly cut herbs and vegetables. The creamy fish soup is ready, and Cato adds the frozen prawns to the soup, just a couple of minutes before serving.

"With so much going on, we rarely spend much time together during the day. A good and tasty dinner is part of our daily routine. It is when we get to have some family time," Cato says.
