Fårikål (Norwegian pronunciation: [fo:r?k?l]) is a traditional Norwegian dish and also considered the national dish of the country. Consisting of pieces of mutton with bone, cabbage, whole black pepper and often a little wheat flour, cooked for several hours in a casserole, traditionally served with potatoes boiled in their skins. The dish is typically prepared in early autumn.
Fårikål is a compounded word that literally means "mutton in cabbage". The name was amended from Danish "gaas i hvidkaal" (goose in white cabbage).
September 29, 2012, Guinness World Records approved the World Record of making the largest portion of Fårikål ever. The result was 594.2 kg Fårikål, prepared to be finished at the same time, consisting of 60% lamb and 40% cabbage. The event happened in Spikersuppa, Oslo, Norway, and there were 10,000 guests present.
In the 1970s, fårikål was elected national dish of Norway by the popular radio programme Nitimen. In 2014, after the controversial decision by the food and agriculture minister Sylvi Listhaug to hold a new competition, it was reconfirmed as the national dish.
