Nice book, but not that inspiring. I had hoped for some more local dishes, and more detailed about bread making, stocks etc. most of the book contains easy recipies, that you could have figured out yourself. I might be good for the less trained chef.

HASH(0x937799cc) out of 5 stars Thank you, Nanna! 5 Jan. 2005
By Julia Rampke - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Nanna has shared with us the fruits of her cooking and research labors of many years - thank you so much! This book is stuffed full of good information about Icelandic culture, the recipes explained in context and detailed well, that even those who've not been to Iceland can get a "taste" of the land. Wonderful!

HASH(0x93779a44) out of 5 stars Lo and behold, there's a new, less expensive edition! 10 Jan. 2015
By lbj - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I recently became aware of this book, wanted it badly, but was horrified at the marketplace price listings: Some in the hundreds of $$$! Lo and behold, there is a new edition (about which Amazon apparently is unaware) which is currently only available from ShopIcelandic, directly from Iceland. Of course, the shipping doubles the price, but still is less than $50.00 US! I just received the book, which is awesome, especially the history and its personal tales with all recipes. Both traditional and modern recipes and little known idiosyncrasies are included: Such as only a mature, native of Iceland could provide, i.e., "Sarah Bernhardt Cookies" being a "must" for Icelandic Christmas baking to be complete! The recipes are stunning and authentic Scandinavian, also: Nanna is an award winning journalist and the author of 15 cookbooks in Iceland! I highly recommend this cookbook for obsessional foodies, like myself, who also are interested in the historical development of cuisines. I also highly recommend to Amazon to explore carrying this new edition, because it's a great marketing opportunity!

HASH(0x93a766a8) out of 5 stars Native cookery at it's best 21 Mar. 2010
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is incredibly refreshing. Here are actual regional recipes accompanied with true accounts of the uses of whey and why whey was used for preserving instead of salt.

I think this book would soar if it were grouped into the health arena. Nanna's work fits nicely with the grassfed, sally fallon, primitive diets.

I had been waiting for this book to be published after reading a thread of hers online many years ago. I purchased it immediately. I am here once again, in hopes that it would be available for my kindle. ( I have been waiting over 3 years...hint, hint)

HASH(0x9383ce10) out of 5 stars Nice Collection of Traditional Foods 17 Oct. 2008
By DynomiteWins - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I wasn't born and raised in Iceland - but my dad was and all of his side of the family still lives in Iceland. Because he didn't cook, much of my food growing up was not traditional Icelandic foods and he had no recipes from his mother or sisters to have my mom cook, so I was thrilled to be able to find a collection of recipes that were specific to Icelandic cooking because while some dishes are very similar to other Scandinavian dishes, there are some that are totally Icelandic and you can't find anywhere else. I looked through this book with my dad and he recalled foods and tastes and holidays.

The recipes themselves are relatively simple to follow although there are occasionally difficult ingredients to find. I particularly enjoyed the history provided with the dishes and that the names of the foods were written in both Icelandic and English. Overall, my only complaint is that I wish there were photos of the finished products, but I can live without it. The book is smaller than most my other cookbooks (about 6x8in?) and hard cover - I had no problems getting it to sit open on the pages I wanted to follow.
HASH(0x93747ed0) out of 5 stars I love this book 13 Sept. 2014
By Shawna E Olsen - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I love this book. The Ice cream recipe alone was worth purchasing it for. There are really amazing recipes in this book. My mother in law found a recipe that her mom used to make when she was a child. She had always wanted the recipe. When she saw the recipe in the book she almost started crying. Gift idea for mother in law? I think so!
