For lovers of all things scandinavian!,
This review is from: Scandinavian Christmas (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I wasn't sure what to expect as this book initially looked to be a cross between recipe book and arts/crafts book but it is definitely a recipe book with some beautiful arty/crafty pictures included. I loved the puffy feel to the hard covering and the pictures, although quite dark, are absolutely beautiful and fit the Christmas theme perfectly.
There are a lot of recipes to choose from all sorts from cakes, biscuits and breads to a lot of fish-based dishes. Although I love scandinavian style cooking this may not appeal to a wide audience and certainly some of the less mainstream ingredients such as the pickled herrings did not always fare well with my diners. That aside if you love scandinavian style living and would like to include a scandy flavour to your cooking and your Christmas, this is the perfect book and it's the perfect time to get it as you will have plenty of time to practice the recipes so you can be flawless by Christmas. All in all a great buy and definitely one for the collection.
