Mormor's recipies: Tartelette with chicken and asparagus


 Mormor means Mum's Mum.  Literally.  As in Grandmother.   You can also say Farmor, which means Dad's Mum.  Sweet.

Bronte's Mormor was called Erna and she had very white curly hair (sometimes a bit purple-hue).  She was about 5 foot 2 and liked to bang her fist on the table at family gatherings in order to get the entire table to listen - so forcefully that the china and cutlery would jump along with it.  She was rather stubborn and determined.  She also made great Tarteletter.

If you are Danish, chances are you had a Mormor who used to make Tarteletter - little lovely pastry cases filled with a creamy sauce with chicken and asparagus.   A staple of any Danish smorgasbord table in the eighties and nineties and still making guest appearances now and then across Denmark, these delightful pastries are a greast starter or addition to any smorgasbord.
