Scandi Kitchen: Simple, delicious Scandinavian dishes for any occasion

We rated this book:


For a nice selection of a variety of good, imaginative Scandinavian recipes ScandiKitchen is an excellent choice. Author Brontë Aurell presents true Scandinavian cuisine in a very pretty, high-end cookbook produced on heavy paper stock, and artistically illustrated by wonderful food photography, including many photos of Scandinavian landscapes. The recipes are not easy but not very involved—you will need to work on most of them, including preparing one or more additional preparations. For some the list of ingredients is long and for many you need to have a specialty food store stocking Scandinavian recipes for items like cloudberry jam or Kalles Kaviar. Typical of Scandinavian cooking, Aurell’s cookbook is rich in sweets, sweet rolls and whole-grain breads, even crispbread (Swedish crackers). Recipe instructions are very good though not for beginner cooks. Interspersed with recipes we find short descriptions and photos of Scandinavian food traditions. The book was written for European cooks but American equivalents are given, slightly distracting; also many ingredients are named by European and American usage: castor sugar/granulated sugar; beetroot/beet; plain/all-purpose flour. Many of the recipes are illustrated with photos of the finished products. The index is nicely cross-referenced.
