Could be (much) better,
This review is from: Scandinavian Christmas (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I had rather hoped for more. This hardback book, with it's curious padded cover, does have some nice reciopes here but I had expected better photographic reproduction and vetter printing. This basically a coffee table boom rather than a recipe book and as such I was looking for a more plush and classy finish.
As regards the text, well, yes the recipes are good but I would have like to have seen more background information and supporting articles to put the recipes in context. As foreigners few of us have much knowledge of Scandinavian history and culture.
There are good things here but it could have been so much better.
