I have never seen Tina Nordstom's cooking show, but when I was offered this book to review I jumped at the chance. I love cookbooks from around the world, and haven't had the opportunity to check out many from Scandinavia. The book is large, beautiful and full of color photos and scrumptious recipes. I recommend the Chanterelle and Ground Beef Pie, Chanterelle Topped Veal Patties (yes, I love mushrooms!), White Wine Poached Mussels with Fennel and Garlic, and the Flounder Fish 'n Chips is sure to be a hit with the kids! My almost-12-year-old daughter is actually a huge mussel and fennel fan, so the mussel recipe was about as perfect for her as you could get! The recipes are clear and typically easy to follow. On the down side, when I pick up a book that touts itself as cooking from a specific place, I'm looking for their specific ethnic recipes. Even though this book is called "Scandinavian Cooking", there is recipes from all over the world. Greek Lamb Balls, French Chicken Stew, Tomato & Buffalo Mozzarella Salad and--the one that made me laugh out loud--American Pancakes! I wish she had stayed with Scandinavian cooking or named it something different so there wasn't the disappointment of finding an international cookbook instead, but that is my only issue with this book. I received a copy of this book from Skyhorse Publishing for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
I am Swedish, and not only is Tina my new favorite Chef, but my new favorite TV personality.Her recipes have a wide range, from Swedish to American, and retain the classic elements, with her twist.The story of her and her family is enough to buy this book alone, but I love the recipes, as well. I am a Caesar Salad devotee, and her recipe is classic with a few little things that make it better...adding lemon ZEST, and tearing the bread for the croutons. Little things that make a big difference in the end result.And, her TV simple Smoked Trout is my all time favorite fish!By the way...this is a beautiful, large, hardcover book.I will get this for Holiday gifts!
Half (at least) of recipes were not Scandinavian but international - Indian, Korean, Italian etc.
Tina's book is delightful, fresh food prepared in an interesting and elegant manner. I have been watching PBS' program concerning Scandinavian Cooking for year's. Tina's style of cooking is fresh and wonderful. I love it.
Not very Scandinavian! There's everything from French, Lebanese and Asian recipes in this book. I'm very disappointed .
I received an ARC of this cookbook - my opinions remain my own and honest.I'll be honest, I've never had Scandinavian food - well, at least that I am aware of! If this book is representative of their food culture, I definitely want to eat more of it! This colorful cookbook from PBS TV cooking personality, TIna Nordstrom, features more than 200 recipes that will have you drooling over photos (kudos to her photographer!) and ready to try new things! I never realized how much comfort food you could find in Scandinavian recipes! Potatoes au gratin, chocolate mousse, stews and more - oh my goodness these are amazing! With the weather turning cold, hubby loves to flip through this cookbook and pick a meal based on what looks like it would "warm his bones". So far, the recipes have not disappointed! Well-written and easy to understand directions - this is a great gift for the homecook in your life looking to expand their repertoire!
Very interesting book. Much more global in its recipes but with a Norse twist that will leave you wanting to try every dish in the book! I especially liked the seafood recipes and the interspersed stories made this book fun to read.
I LOVE this cookbook! Tina Nordstrom has filled this book with so many delicious looking recipes, it's going to really be many months of fantastic cuisine at my house. I grew up with European parents in the Boston area, I've been searching for a cookbook that brings together my nostalgic memories of visiting my family abroad and eating with them. The recipes are all pretty much using ingredients I can find here, I've just substituted a few and they have come out great. My favorite recipes so far? Mashed Potatoes with Lemon (yum!), Chanterelle and Ground Beef Pie, and the Chocolate and Ginger Mousse. All seem really complicated, but really easy! If you want a cookbook filled with recipes for all abilities AND great photos to compliment the recipes, you're in luck!
