This is a very good, authentic Swedish cookbook from an era when Scandinavian foods seemed quite obscure. The author provides a cross-section of traditional recipes as well as some which seemingly are unavailable elsewhere. For example, "Punsch" (a celebratory beverage that is very potent and tricky) - not to be confused with Glogg - is now primarily commercially made, rendering recipes unnecessary. However, Norberg provides an authentic and superior recipe. All the recipes are well written and easy to follow. Indeed, Norberg is so conscientious that it sometimes seems that her instructions go a bit too far in their precision and detail. Great little book, though, highly recommended for anyone looking for the culinary secrets from days gone by, which still affect the cuisine of today.
Being from Sweden myself, I did not care for this recipe book. I already have 2 others books on Swedish food, but thought that I would like another. I was unhappy with most of the recipes. Most of them are not even completely Swedish in origin. So far the best book that I owned is a 30 year old that even has Swedish words and metric systems. Our Beloved Sweden. If you are a beginner in doing Swedish cooking, then don't buy this book.
It was a big success. The recipient has already started cooking. Highly readable and recipes easy to follow. Thank you.
