Product Description

From Library Journal

Scandinavian cookbooks tend to focus on Finland, Sweden, and Denmark; Ojakangas, author of several previous books on the subject, here includes recipes from Iceland as well. There are hearty "breads for meals," rich and delicate cookies, cakes and pies, and breads for "coffeetime," which can be a formal, three-course occasion. A diverse selection of national specialties, for larger collections. JS

I am part Swedish and Norwegian and this book is absolutely an essential part of my holiday baking. She serves up the most authentic and traditional recipes available for Scandinavian baking. Her other books are great, too. My grandmother was impressed by my browned butter cookies and from another book, lefse. Highly recommended for all Scandinavians, or those who just love the food and culture!

This book is loaded with recipes for all kinds of baking, from hardtack to fancy layer cakes. It covers all the classics recipes from Finland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Iceland. Anyone familiar with baking from those countries will find thier favorites, and for those who are new to this region's baking plenty of delectable new discoveries are in store.Many recipes come with little stories and explanations about the traitions. The only thing I miss are photos, which make any cookbook even more tempting.

I bought the older hardcover version of this cookbook that was issued in 1988 and there probably is not a lot of difference between the two versions. I highly recommend this cookbook for two reasons.
First of all, it is written by Beatrice Ojakangas who, in my opinion, is the queen of all recipe book writers:) I own a number of her cookbooks and she writes in a very clear, concise way. All of her recipes are accompanied by a cultural anecdote or an informative note or two about the recipe so that you feel that you own more than a cookbook - you gain an insight into the Scandinavian culture and way of life.
Secondly, and just as important, the recipes in this book are simply delicious. They run the gamut from breads and rolls to mouth watering pastries, both sweet and savoury. I had seen the many shapes that Danish pastry came in and they looked somewhat daunting to prepare but, in her book, Ms Ojakangas provides easy to follow diagrams that made them a breeze to shape. Being a chocoholic, I never thought that desserts could be tasty unless they were loaded down with the stuff. I stand corrected!:)
Again, I highly recommend this book. The recipes are delicious and it is an excellent book for anyone who has ever felt daunted by baking. Well done!

This book is a fantastic compilation of recipes. It brought back heart-warming memories of my Great Grandmother in the kitchen. I absolutely recommend this to those who enjoy staying in touch with their ancestory, and those curious about scandinavian cooking.
Enjoy!
