Format: Hardcover
Lindstrom's baking book is very enjoyable but, if you're in the UK, go for 'A Piece of Cake' as it's the same book as this but with UK measures (I was caught out). Recipes both imaginative and simple, everything's achievable and all enhanced by tempting photography.

"a piece of cake" 9 Nov 2009
By severina margarita - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
the english title is very misleading- i own the swedish version, which is called "a piece of cake" and is much more fitting.
this cookbook does have a lot of american, british, and italian recipes, but contains some of the best recipes for the foods i loved so much during my year in sweden: chokladbollar (chocolate coconut bombs), kardemummaknutar (those cardamom rolls), prinsesstårta (princess cake), kladdkaka (that sticky toffee cake), and two very swedish breads: knäckebröd and dalabröd. i like that she included so many varieties of sugarcakes, as they are extremely common in sweden, and the texture of the muffin recipes are consistent with swedish muffins, not american ones. other recipes have a swedish twist: the chocolate chip cookies call for lime zest, and many use cardamom... a spice i was hardly aware of until being inundated with it in every swedish pastry i tried! and all the different elderflower/berry items! love it. you can watch her make some of the recipes on her show, "leila bakar", on the website [...].

Mistitled but still original and inspiring 18 Dec 2010
By Jessica Weissman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Yes, this book is radically mistitled. If you want a book full of traditional Scandinavian (not just Swedish) baked goods get yourself Beatrice Ojakangas' Scandinavian Baking, or track down some of those really great Lutheran church cookbooks.

BUT if you want some really interesting and unusual recipes, many of which have a Swedish twist to them, look into this book. I've made a few of the crackers and rolls to great effect. And it's rare to get so many interesting recipes for non-sweet baked goods.

Know what you're getting, and appreciate the special treat this is. Skyhorse Publishing is bad at titles - Jan Hedh's Swedish Breads and Pastries which they also publish is only a little bit more Swedish than this book.

Four stars rather than five because some of the recipes need a bit of editing. But if you're an experienced and confident baker you'll do just fine.

not swedish 27 April 2010
By EB of akron - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I bought this book for a friend with Swedish Heritage. I am glad that I looked at it before giving. A Swedish author writing about French and Italian recipes is not what I was looking for and not what the title implied!

Not Swedish by a long shot 15 Oct 2009
By Q. Olson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The title of this book might as well be "Sweet and Savory Baking on the Moon" because it has just as much to do with Swedish baking. Yes, the author is part Swedish and that's apparently where she lives and is on TV, but that's about it from what I can tell. Most of the recipes are French, English, and tons of Italian with a few Swedish sprinkled in. If I wasn't expecting Swedish recipes, I'd probably like this book better. It has lots of color pictures and the recipes look good. On the technical side, this book is printed on matte paper, so you don't get those great glossy pictures that are so much fun to look at. It feels kind of cheap -- like one of those Food Network books.

Recipes Off 14 Dec 2011
By KChristina - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The pictures look amazing, but I have had to modify each recipe I've tried so far because the measurements/ingredients are off. Disappointing.
