The Nordic Cookbookoffers an unprecedented look at the rich culinary offerings of the Nordic region with 700 recipes collected by the acclaimed Swedish chef Magnus Nilsson. The Nordic Cookbook, richly illustrated with the personal photography of internationally acclaimed chef Magnus Nilsson, unravels the mysteries of Nordic ingredients and introduces the region's culinary history and cooking techniques. Included in this beautiful book are more than 700 authentic recipes Magnus collected while travelling extensively throughout the Nordic countries - Denmark, the Faroe Islands, Finland, Greenland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden - enhanced by atmospheric photographs of its landscapes and people. His beautiful photographs feature in the book alongside images of the finished dishes by Erik Olsson, the photographer behind Fäviken. With Magnus as a guide, everyone can prepare classic Nordic dishes and also explore new ones.

These recipes are achievable for home cooks of all abilities and are accompanied by narrative texts on Nordic culinary history, ingredients and techniques including smoking and home preserving. Additional essays explore classic dishes made for special occasions and key seasonal events, such as the Midsummer feast. The Nordic Cookbookjoins Phaidon's national cuisine series, which includes Mexico, India, Thailand, Peruand others, and is the most comprehensive source on home cooking from the Nordic countries.… (more)

I love this cookbook! It was a holiday gift to me, and so thoughtful and perfect!

I've only started browsing through it as it deserves, but have already- in less than a week!- made 2 recipes from it. Both the julekaka (a Norwegian Christmas bread that's a holiday tradition around here), and the red cabbage with apples which we just has with our Yuletide roast goose, turned out perfectly. And since our local Scandinavian store closed, I am eager to try making rye crispbread, lefse, and other things!

And, someday, I will even make lutefisk from scratch...

Anyway- if you have a Scandinavian heritage, or it's a part of your family- this is a thorough look at what the historic foods of the Nordic countries are, and most are quite accessible and look delicious.

I am completely thrilled by it, and I haven't even started to browse the pastry recipes!

Very recommended for people who have an interest, including in historic foods. ( )
