Overview

The Nordic Cookbook offers 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 Faviken.

With Magnus as a guide, everyone can prepare classic Nordic dishes and also explore new ones. The Nordic Cookbook introduces readers to the familiar (gravlax, meatballs and lingonberry jam) and the lesser-known aspects of Nordic cuisine (rose-hip soup, pork roasted with prunes, and juniper beer).

Organized by food type, The Nordic Cookbook covers every type of Nordic dish including meat, fish, vegetables, breads, pastries and desserts. 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 Cookbook joins Phaidon's national cuisine series, which includes Mexico, India, Thailand, Peru and others, and is the most comprehensive source on home cooking from the Nordic countries.

This magnum opus by Nilsson (Fäviken), head chef of Swedens Fäviken Magasinet restaurant, offers more than 700 recipes full of Scandinavian flavor. Nilsson hedges his bets in the introduction, warning that ingredients behave differently in different parts of the world, so even if his instructions are followed precisely, sometimes its not going to work anyhow. But thats okay, since he posits that recipes are a technical base on which you can then build and adjust. The book consists of 22 chapters, organized by food type, interweaving recipes from Norway, Finland, Denmark, and neighboring countries. The book is amazingly comprehensive: the opening chapter, for example, is composed of six egg recipes. This is the perfect tome to simply crack open to a random page and have at it. In the game chapter, one finds puffin stuffed with cake, and a couple of pages later, stew of shaved reindeer meat. Flip back to the section on saltwater fish and discover what could be the worlds most comprehensive guide to herring, with instructions on curing and nearly three dozen variations including fried herring in vinegar. Or, for courage, start at the end, where drinks such as salty licorice vodka await discovery. (Oct.)
