Swedish to English translations [PRO] Cooking / Culinary / canteen menu
Swedish term or phrase:Cheddar korv
lamm och Cheddar korv med potatis gratäng
Context: a canteen menu with more or less normal dishes, e.g. Pytt i panna, Biff Lindström, or Lax med purjolöksås och färskpotatis on different days of the week.
And on Thursday, I think, lamm och Cheddar korv med potatis gratäng.
Could it be a misprint for lamm och korv med potatis och Cheddar gratäng?
If anyone can explain what it is, I'll be very grateful!
I'd hate to spoil Cheddar and the sausage by mixing them. (I too miss real Cheddar; my father's from Somerset...) But there's no accounting for tastes, and some things do taste far better than they sound! 4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
Thanks for the comments. No, spelling is not always this cook's strong point. He's obviously trying this time, with the capitalised Cheddar (and "särskrivning" would be correct in English... You can't win :-D )
There is always a salad bar. I think it varies acording to season and the cook's humour, or what he thinks will go well with the main course. They just don't bother mentioning the salad on the menu.
Don't think it's a misprint. Just imaging, a plate with: lamm OCH korv OCH cheddar- och potatisgratäng. Probably just some poor waiter/chef who didn't know what to do when faced with the capitalized Cheddar. And "särskrivning" is endemic in Sweden today.

Explanation: Det är ju vanligt med särskrivning på svenska, så jag gissar att de menar lamm- och cheddarkorv, alltså lammkorv med cheddarost i. Eller på kanske?
Kanske inte precis den vanligaste korven, men korv med ost i förekommer ju lite då och då i butikerna.
