Book Description

17 Mar 2009
Scandinavia has much to offer in the way of food and lifestyle, and the cuisine of the three main countries, Denmark, Sweden and Norway, is fast becoming of international interest. Here, leading Danish chef and food writer, Trina Hahnemann presents a collection of 100 delicious recipes representing the essence of Scandinavian cooking. Structured around the distinctive seasons,which have inevitably made their impact on cooking and dining, this book also gives a feel for life in Scandinavia with photographs and special features.Divided by months, each chapter contains 10 recipes which highlight the very best seasonal recipes from January's Danish Pastries and Citrus Marinated Salmon, through to April's Rack of Lamb Stuffed with Mint and Dried Apricot, September's Swedish Meatballs with 'Cowberry Compote' and all the December delights of Christmas with traditions and recipes from all three countries. The recipes in the book all have an emphasis on simple, healthy ingredients which reflect today's desire to eat lighter food without sacrificing look or flavour.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful book, lovely food! 24 Aug 2009
By Trinny
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I've now had this book for one week and I've made the fiske frikadeller with remoulade and dill potatoes, the brunsviger, cucumber salad and rye foccacia - love this cookbook already! I started out as I normally do when I get a new cook book by putting post it notes on every page where there is a recipe that i want to try, but gave up when it turned out to be literally every other page. Lovely pics and background stories too. Also - all the ingredients are readily available in British supermarkets, which also gets a big thumbs up from me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Utterly nostalgic, great book 18 Nov 2009
My mother is Danish but lives in the UK so this book was just a trip down nostalgic memory lane for us! The recipes are so authentic; my Danish family would approve. The photography is amazing and the sense of Scandinavia that it suggests is just lovely. A great cookbook - for me its as if the recipes were handed down from my Danish grandmother, especially the Christmas meal!

4.0 out of 5 stars Discovering Scandinavian food 17 Nov 2010
In Stieg Larsson' Millenium Trilogy everyone dines on 'open sandwich'. This book has clarified to me what an open sandwich means! In Trina's words, not many people are familiar with the Nordic culinary tradition, and she does a good job of explaining what each dish is and what it represents. The book has a very personal feeling and a huge amount of recipes. While fish features prominently of course, there's a good amount of meat and vegetarian dishes. Some, probably more difficult to recreate (reindeer or moose!) but most are absolutely fine. I cooked the oxtail ragout which was rich in flavours and aromas and delicious. Some recipes are a little basic (hot chocolate) but overall there is a wide selection of starters, mains and sweet dishes which I can't wait to try (such as cardamom buns and medaljier). The book is divided by calendar months and each month is described by what happens to nature and people in the Nordics...which I personally find very interesting as it really creates an atmosphere. The food photos are side by side to some stunning scenery photography which also sets the mood. A pleasant read with some great recipes and a fantastic insight in the Scandinavian cuisine.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am a big fan of Scandinavian cuisine and have already got a few other books by Trine Hahnemann. This book does not disappoint and contains a variety of easily achievable recipes. I use it frequently and the results not only look great but taste divine. I recommend this book and others by Trine Hahnemann thoroughly.
