I’m visiting parents over Christmas. They’ve started working already so I’m heating dinner
and cooking rice. I’m used to having a rice cooker do that last job for me, so I glanced
at the instructions at the back. Despite Norwegian, Danish and Swedish being mutually
intelligible, particularly so in the written form, there are instructions in all three
I do not mind that, particularly, except that they are all different. The Swedish
instructions lists a different amount of water than the other two, and the Danish lists
different cooking times. I’m confident that all three recipes produce edible rice, but is
a bit of consistency too much to ask?
