The Nordic Cookbook
The saying “we are what we eat” is more than a children’s idiom, as food is an undeniable indicator of culture and society. Inspired by his travels through the Nordic countries, internationally acclaimed Chef Magnus Nilsson writes, The Nordic Cookbook. Nilsson, a Sweden native, made it his personal mission to bring Nordic cuisine out from behind the shadows, sharing how all regional cuisines within the broader Nordic cuisine category are related through mutual history and culture. Nilsson impressively encompasses all aspects of Nordic food in over 700 recipes in 22 comprehensive chapters, sharing familiar recipes, such as gravlax and meatballs, and less familiar recipes, such as rosehip soup and pork roasted with prunes. Using his own photography to showcase the beauty of the striking Nordic lands, Nilsson takes us on very personal journey. For $50, The Nordic Cookbook is a brilliant buy for all your serious foodie friends.
