Book Description

June 1983
Beatrice Ojakangas brings to life the cuisines and customs of Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Denmark, countries that share borders and bounty. Danes lead with smørrebrød (an open-faced sandwich), which may be topped with cheese, green pepper, and sliced fresh strawberries. Finns specialize in earthy, chewy whole grain bread. Norwegians have wonderfully fresh fish and seafood, and the Swedes gave the world smörgåsbord!

Ojakangas offers us true Scandinavian home cooking that features the best of what is in season. Scandinavian Cooking provides traditional menus for different occasions and seasons-from a Farmhouse Brunch with Buttered Potato Soup to an Old-Fashioned Christmas Smörgåsbord with Dip-in-the-Kettle Soup and Norwegian Cream Pudding, to a sumptuous Midsummer's Day Buffet with Salmon-in-a-Crust and Fruit-Juice Glögg.

A good Scandinavian cook has a flair for color, texture, shape, and simplicity in creating the food that these menus show off to perfection. Beatrice Ojakangas describes her experiences gathering recipes at the tables of friends on her visits to Scandinavia and the beautifully crafted tools and tableware that will help to make the Scandinavian dishes you prepare authentic.

Beatrice Ojakangas is the author of more than twenty cookbooks, including The Great Scandinavian Baking Book (1999), Scandinavian Feasts (2001), The Great Holiday Baking Book (2001), and Quick Breads (2003)-all available in paperback from the University of Minnesota Press. Her articles have been published in Bon Appetit, Cooking Light, Cuisine, and Redbook. She has appeared on television's Baking with Julia Child and Martha Stewart's Living, and lives in Duluth, Minnesota.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well loved and used cookbook April 15 2004
Format:Paperback
After I was first married, I purchased the HP version of Scandinavian Cooking. Wore the cookbook out from almost daily use. Am so glad Scandinavian Cooking was reprinted, because all the recipes are keepers. Every cook should have a copy, especially if they are married to someone from Scandinavian descent.

My favorites were the Swedish Meatballs and Finnish Egg Cheese. Have yet to try them all but have not found one that I didn't like.

3.0 out of 5 stars good book, but no pictures and confusing layout Jan. 14 2011
By ScrappyDew - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The recipies are great, as is the history and culture information. However, this book has zero pictures of the finished product. For a person of Scandinavian heritage this may not be a problem, but for somone who has never experience many of these dishes a picture of what i'm trying to create would be helpful. Additonally, the layout is non-traditional. I didn't think this would bother me when i ordered the book, but it is annoying when looking for a specific recipe. One needs to know which feast the recipie is associated with to locate the chapter it will be found. Both of these do not detract from the quality of the book or authenticity of the recipies, but they do impact my ability to enjoy the book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just try it! Jan. 7 2008
By D. Demrest - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
A wonderful book that combines a little trivia, a little history, and a little understanding into a culture that is widely ignored yet offers some amazing flavors in the culinary experience. If you are going to purchase this book, buy it with the Scandinavian Baking companion, as the two go well together and will assist amazingly in the creation of your own smorgasbord! I have used the recipes as additions to traditional American favorites for the Christmas holiday season and have gotten rave reviews (from children AND adults!). If you are bold enough to try some interesting combinations (oranges and garlic, anyone?), you won't be disappointed.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disapointed by reprint Oct. 29 2012
By Daniel L. Osborne - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am very disappointed by the reprinting of Scandinavian Cooking, we have had the previous printing and loved the photographs of the foods. We wore out the old copy with love and use, and ordered this edition, the colorful cover is misleading there are no photographs inside. Very disappointing.
