An excellent cookbook. As a native of Norway I can honestly say that the recipes are truly Scandinavian. However, I have two criticisms. The first is that there are not enough colour pictures - I personally like a well-illustrated cook book. Secondly, I found the American measurements frustrating and I found myself having to order a set of American measuring cups. Despite these criticisms I would recommend this book to anyone wanting a truly authentic taste of Scandinavia.

Perhaps if one is familiar with the cakes/bakes from Scandinavia this book may be suitable for them. However I am not, so I am disappointed that there are no pictures of any of the cakes/recipes; the only picture is on the book's front cover.

Some recipes provide sketches that help visualise stages of making of the recipe but I prefer to see the final result, even more so when dealing with unknown national cakes from other countries. Presentation is as important in my view, and with such a huge range of books available in the market, I am not sure I will keep this book.

I bought the older hardcover version of this cookbook that was issued in 1988 and there probably is not a lot of difference between the two versions. I highly recommend this cookbook for two reasons.
First of all, it is written by Beatrice Ojakangas who, in my opinion, is the queen of all recipe book writers:) I own a number of her cookbooks and she writes in a very clear, concise way. All of her recipes are accompanied by a cultural anecdote or an informative note or two about the recipe so that you feel that you own more than a cookbook - you gain an insight into the Scandinavian culture and way of life.
Secondly, and just as important, the recipes in this book are simply delicious. They run the gamut from breads and rolls to mouth watering pastries, both sweet and savoury. I had seen the many shapes that Danish pastry came in and they looked somewhat daunting to prepare but, in her book, Ms Ojakangas provides easy to follow diagrams that made them a breeze to shape. Being a chocoholic, I never thought that desserts could be tasty unless they were loaded down with the stuff. I stand corrected!:)
Again, I highly recommend this book. The recipes are delicious and it is an excellent book for anyone who has ever felt daunted by baking. Well done!

If you love your gastroporn and love a good read of a cook book then this will not disappoint. True, i have not yet made anything but i have only had the book a couple of weeks. I bought after Nigella reccommends it in her book. I love Scandanvian cookery. It is a good mix of Icelandic, Norwegian, Danish, Finnish and Swedish rather than the typical Danish and Swedish. The little anecdotes and stories transport you somewhere else and make you feel all Christmassy. Chocca with almonds, marzipan, cream, butter, cardamon and cinnamon - not for dieters. Lovely cook book, just could be improved with afew photos.

No the book for me. As this has recipes that are not well known good pictures would have helped. Very challenging to make something when you do not know what it looks like.
