|Suovas with Mushroom Sauce|
Suovas is the Sami word for "smoked". And Sami’s are people who live in the Artic region, in northern Norway, Sweden, Finland and Russia.
Souvas also refers to salted smoked reindeer meat. It is one of the most delicious meats I have eaten. The flavor is intense, gamey and smoky. Reindeer meat is quite lean but extremely tender when thinly sliced and cooked quickly. The recipe is available here.

Demand for egg yolk-free omelettes, sandwiches and shakes has resulted in a shortage of egg-whites in the US. To me this sounds strange since the egg york is tasty and healthy.
According to the US food price information service Urner Barry, the cost of liquid egg whites increased by 80% in the 12 months to December 2013. As a result egg whites are now significantly more expensive than the yolks.
I was even surprised to read that McDonald's has products that only use egg whites, such as Scrambled Egg Whites and Egg White Delight McMuffin. These products are supposedly healthy because they only use egg whites. But it also contains liquid margarine. And the Egg White Delight McMuffin contains processed cheddar cheese. To me it seems strange to remove remove egg yolk but use liquid margarine and processed cheese. The American consumer thinks otherwise.
