The photography in this book is stunning and there are a host of unusal recipes (I have almost 300 cookbooks so was attracted to this because it was a bit different).

There were several recipes that caught my eye, winter vegetable crumble, pigeon with red wine and cabbage risotto and honey glazed ham in pretzels not to mention the glorious looking puddings that would warm you up on the dreary winter nights to come.

However, the back jacket claims that we will be taken on a culinary journey throughout northern Europe and into Russia, which I am sure we were - but none of the recipes had ANY commentary whatsoever, so I have no idea where the crumble or the risotto originate and I think a couple of lines to introduce each recipe would have made a very good book, perfect and one that I would have wanted to take to bed and read cover to cover rather than just flick through the photography. From the unusual titles of some of the dishes too it is hard to imagine what they actually contain and taste like (although the stranger ingredients are commented on it foot notes) so again some description of what it tastes like or when it was cooked or some other personal insights would help to tempt me to make some of the quirky dishes and would draw the average cook into the book more readily.

The Winter Vegetable Crumble has been much praised and I agree, it is worth the price on it's own, all of my guests keep asking me to make it again!
I have tried the steak with fois gras and spiced cocoa sauce which was a delight to make and went down so very well, and the Goulash Soup was lushous
I am cooking a receipe each week and am looking forward to the choice.
It's not often that I get so excited about a cookery book though it is a delight to expand my skills and knowledge as I haven't looked at Eastern European or Scandinanian cookery before now.
If anything the book has wonderful photography and is well thought out and constructed. Treat yourself and buy yourself a copy

This book is a treasure trove of unusual and delicious recipes. I am an avid collector of cookery books (200+ at the last count) and this one tends to be one i reach for every time i have guests over for dinner. The venison stroganoff is an absolute triumph, as is the warm apple toddy. I have come to like the the clumsy layout, every time i flick through its pages i seem to stumble across a new dish. The design of the book is just as mouth watering as the recipes; Stark crisp white pages, hidden glossy snowflakes and photography that wouldn't look out of place in a gallery.

This is my favourite cookbook and i am slowly working my way through it. I have made around 10 recipes so far, The caraway and fennel pork with mustard onion mash is just divine, as are the black forest molten puddings. In fact everything has been delicious. I do miss the little descriptions you can get at the beginning of the recipe but other than that it does not let you down. This is the book that i turn to when entertaining or feel in a mood to try something new.
I have a diary allergy and i have been able to, and will be able to substitute the dairy in most recipes in the book. I reckon 100 of the 110 recipes available, Ofcourse i will never be able to have the cheese fondue :((.

If you're looking for a cookery book that conjures up Winter goodness and festivities, you could do far worse than turn to Jane Lawson's book. The author really evokes the pleasures of cooking inspired by a chilly climate.

As noted by other reviewers, the book's main downfall is it's lack of description regarding each recipe. I had read this criticism before purchasing and didn't think much of it, but now I see how it does affect the book. Though there are some beautiful pictures, you sometimes find yourself scanning the ingredients to work out exactly either what the recipe is, or what it tastes like.

Given that Jane opens with a lovely, creative introduction, it's clear she certainly doesn't lack the writing prowess so it does seem odd for the recipes to omit any description about their origin or explanation as to why readers should try them and for what occasion.

The recipes themselves look tasty and inspiring, even if as the book goes on the technical ability and time required seems to increase. Those just looking for a cosy stew may balk at the mention of a carrot jus.

Personally this book is an expensive purchase at £16 for recipes I suspect I won't cook from, but a marketplace purchase of a fiver was a great deal and certainly worth it.

I don't just use a Cookery Book to obtain Recipe's.I like a book that tells a story.This book gives a little in-sight into another country's food's and the beautiful way to serve "crisp& clean" looking dishes. It's beautifully presented and will be useful for summer cooking as well as winter. Nothing is too difficult for a simple cook to handle. (At least that how it looks to me!)Great for a Gift.

This is a beautiful book and a great one for the coffee table. I also like the recipes in terms of taste, in particular the vegetable crumble is delicious and now a staple in our house. My main gripe is that the book is supposed to be about Nordic food, but I get the impression that the recipes are more "inspired by" Nordic food rather than traditional recipes. There is no information on where the individual recipes come from and I think this is a shame.
