Customer Review

on 16 January 2010
When you buy this book and read through the recipes, you might find some of the quantities very small - please do not let this put you off and do not increase the quantities when you first cook one of the recipes featured in this book. When you try the recipes for yourself you will see that everything will come out just right. I've so far cooked Lacey Potato Pancakes, Stuffed Cabbage Rolls, Lamb Burgers, and the obligatory Jansson's frestelse from this book, and each of the dishes was as tasty and charming as the other - and home-made Swedish meatballs are just so much tastier than IKEA's version (leaner too, but probably not surprising). Give it a try, it's so easy.

Most of the ingredients used should be easy to obtain in the UK, with the possible exception of some of the game meats. What I like about this book is that Anna doesn't leave out recipes with harder to find ingredients, or simply give them with substitutes - the latter are mentioned in the notes, for us to have a choice. Anna's style of writing is very warm, and it's easy to feel her love for her county and people reading through the sections on Sweden the country, its customs and traditions, and - most importantly - it's cuisine.

I can but warmly recommend this book to everyone with an interest in international cuisine, or more specifically, Scandinavian food.
