The Great Scandinavian Baking Book by Beatrice Ojakangas
The Great Scandinavian Baking Book by Beatrice Ojakangas
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.

Having grown up not far away i can strongly relate to his descriptions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nigel delivers again, 2 Oct 2013
Great book. Fantastic photography again and atmospheric writing that whisks you off to both preparing and eating meals with Nigel. His calm, earthy, style and unpretentious titles are the perfect antidote to in your face celebrity chefs.
This is a huge piece of work like Tender and reads like a diary interspersed with recipes. As a vegetarian there are plenty of veggies recipes in this book. I was very happy with my purchase.
