by Brontë Aurell
There's so much more to Nordic food than
pickled herring and meatballs. Stretching from the midnight sun of
northern Norway to the flat, fertile fields of Denmark, Scandinavian
food culture is a lot more varied than you might think. Scandinavian
food is simple. Natives call it 'husmanskost' (farmer's fare). Its
appeal lies in the fact that it is healthy, wholesome, flavorsome,
simple to make and beautiful to look at. This book features recipes for
all occasions and times of the day, ranging from morning buns, lunchtime
savories, hearty dinners and indulgent desserts, to bakes and other
foods for special celebrations. Enjoy fresh and simple open sandwiches,
healthy Nordic salads, delicious traditional hot dishes, and indulgent
cakes. Discover new flavors and textures from mustard pickled herring
and gravlax to sticky Kladdkaka cake.
Alongside the recipes, the book includes enlightening features
on traditional events throughout the Nordic calendar: find out what
happens at an Easter crayfish party, why Swedes love a 'fika' (literally
translates as 'to meet up, have a coffee and a chat'), be inspired by
the joyful Midsummer day celebrations, host a traditional Christmas
glögg party, and get an insight into the tradition of the Smorgasbord.
It's all here to discover and enjoy. Size: 7.9" x 9.5", 175 pages. Hardcover.
