Had a peek in the book before I bought it, really loved the fact that they included history and dishes that are actually eaten in Norway today and not just obscure dishes most of the young inhabitants of Norway (or Scandinavia) never even have tasted. I think it is great! My friend loves it =)

This is the recipes of my grandmother's sister Gudrun, and I recognize so much food and recipes I am grown up with. I love this book, it is the real thing! (A rare treat for me is to find a picture of my father, visiting his aunt during the war, p.19).
My grandparents owned and run a glorious hotel, for several decades, and I actually remember some of Gudrun's visits there. I am sure some of her recipe's mirrors some of the everyday food in the hotel, since my grandmother was head of the kitchen. Well done, and thanks to family authors.. ABS.

Lovely book, interesting and authentic recipes. Only reason I've given it three stars is that it has no photographs which spoils it for me. It would have been lovely to see Gudrun's kitchen/family/garden in pictorial format to make the book more interesting. Shame, but I shall keep and cook from it nonetheless.

Some lovely recipes in this book, great for if you're starting out and looking for some comforting family favourites. It does seem very Americanised in many parts, and quite a few of the recipes can be found for free on the internet, but I still feel this was a worthwhile purchase
