Scandinavia has much to offer in the way of food and lifestyle, and the cuisine of the three main countries, Denmark, Sweden and Norway, is fast becoming of international interest. Here, leading Danish chef and food writer, Trina Hahnemann presents a collection of 100 delicious recipes representing the essence of Scandinavian cooking. Structured around the distinctive seasons,which have inevitably made their impact on cooking and dining, this book also gives a feel for life in Scandinavia with photographs and special features.
Divided by months, each chapter contains 10 recipes which highlight the very best seasonal recipes from January's Danish Pastries and Citrus Marinated Salmon, through to April's Rack of Lamb Stuffed with Mint and Dried Apricot, September's Swedish Meatballs with 'Cowberry Compote' and all the December delights of Christmas with traditions and recipes from all three countries. The recipes in the book all have an emphasis on simple, healthy ingredients which reflect today's desire to eat lighter food without sacrificing look or flavour.
