5.0 out of 5 stars THE BEST BOOK ON SCANDI COOKING, 10 Sep 2011
By

This review is from: The Scandinavian Kitchen (Hardcover)
I have quite a few books on Scandinavian cookery and have travelled there a lot too and this is - by a very long way - the best book on the subject. Not only is it full of great recipes - including the obvious dishes such as cured herring and many other things that are less well known - it has fantastic background on ingredients, techniques and Nordic culture. There isn't much you would want to know about Nordic food that you couldn't find in these pages. Things that puzzled me for years (like the various different kinds of herring) were made clear once I had this.
The book also has lovely photographs and is designed with a clean freshness too.
The author is a farmer, cook and gardener and it is clear that she thoroughly understands the food she handles.
I honestly can't sing this book's praises highly enough. I am working my way through it and finding unexpected pleasures at every turn.

I agree with another reviewer that this is the best book on Scandinavian cooking so far available. There are some really interesting recipes, many traditional and others with a slightly modern twist. I love the beetroot terrine and the roasted root vegetables with elderflower cordial; both use conventional ingredients but in ways I'd never thought of before. However, what makes this book really stand out from the pack is the detailed description of ingredients and where their place lies in Nordic cooking. For the first time I've felt the beginning of a deeper understanding of Scandinavian food culture, which means that the recipes in this book (wonderful as they are!) are a steppping point towards being able to experiment with ingredients and flavours. Top notch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect and Unique, 26 Nov 2013

Whilst visiting Copenhagen I tried to buy a Scandinavian cookery book in a local bookshop. Not a great deal in English and terribly expensive. This is the real thing and a good price on Amazon. Beautifully presented as if a friend is showing you all the secrets of cooking from friends and family. Love it.

If you like Scandinavian cuisine you will love this. Yes there is herring and salmon and open sandwiches but oh so much more!

We have Danish blood in our veins so bought this for our son who is a very competent cook. Our son has found several recipes he wants to try out, but was rather amused to find one dealing with roast elk! Not many of those around in Yorkshire despite the cold winter this year.
