    More about Man tager 20 egg* (One takes 20 eggs)

    At the website of Teater Innlandet the following, among other things, is written about Man tager 20 egg* (One takes 20 eggs):

    "Have you heard of Hanna Winsnes?

    The vicar's wife who with her cookbook from 1845 taught the Norwegian people butchering, cooking, husbandry, soap-cooking and the correct way to treat a maid. She was admired and ridiculed, and Arne Garborg mocked her: 'One takes...takes...takes...and is not bothered by the question of where to take it all from'.

    She also was Norway's first female novel writer, and her writing included romantic novel feuilletons in weeklies, in which there are both love and murder. Using a male pseudonym, though. She was a vicar's wife.Her husband's calling sent them to Trysil and Valdres, among other places, before they ended at Vang vicarage outside of Hamar.

    Do come along into the kitchen of Hanna Winsnes! Here, she tells stories from her exciting life, while cooking vegetable soup for her guests. The soup is served during the interval!"
