To kick-start the month, until September 6 the Stuttgarter Weindorf festival in Germany will offer up pretzels galore, or you'll find more than 200 stalls serving dishes that range from pancakes to rakfisk
If you'd believed some of the stories printed about Wolves a fortnight ago, they were a team in crisis with a manager on the brink - who had to borrow a motor off the secretary to get his weekly Rakfisk
, Torsk, Sursild, svinekoteletter, kjotboller and tins of Fiskesuppe.
Try reindeer, which tastes like a slightly gamey steak and Rakfisk
, a traditional eastern Norwegian dish made from trout which is salted and fermented for two to three months, then eaten without cooking (better than it sounds).
