I love this book. Had to buy it after I borrowed it because it had so many recipes for absolutely everything. A wonderful read as well.

Underline authentic! Anyone for some Boiled Seal Intestines with Blubber and Crowberries? Having said that, this is stunning in terms of visuals - landscape and food - and tells fascinating stories of history and culture through food. This is a cookbook to read, not just pull recipes from.

This is a very neat book, there is some cultural reference given, some of the recipes would be hard to cook here in the states because of lack of being able to obtain ingredients, but there are many that could be cooked here. I can't wait to try the Danish Ryebread so I can make some smorrebread. This book is a great way to get to know Scandinavia through its culinary traditions.

There are many recipes that don't require specialized ingredients or have easy substitutes. Every recipe I've made so far has been good. Especially the potato and almond cake.
The text and photographs accompanying the recipes also ground them in the land and local culture.

You will not cook anything from this book. But, oh man!, is Magnus Nilsson a master of the Nordic cuisine. His stories, his anecdotes, the photographs: All very very beautiful. The recipes? Yeah, good luck with that. The techniques are some of the most advanced and the ingredients are gonna be really really tough to come by here in Tucson. But...whatever. Just admire the man's work and intentions and love what he does in a little converted hut in the middle of the Swedish tundra. Amazing...
