Welcome to long summer days, sharing food with friends and making the most of the season. This month we are visiting Scandinavia in our Local Town Cookbook Club.
The Scandinavians excel at comfort family, friends, a good atmosphere, long meals, relaxation, and an emphasis on the simple pleasures. They even have a word for this kind of coziness that comes with spending quality time in hearth and home when the days are short: “hygge.”
Trine Hahnemann is the doyenne of Scandinavian cooking, and loves nothing more than spending time in her kitchen cooking up comforting food in good company. This is her collection of recipes that will warm you up and teach you to embrace the art of hygge, no matter where you live.
“This is a very good book of Scandinavian food. The photos and words in here are inspiring for me to make these meatballs of a different culture. Other cultures have meatballs too! These Scandinavian Frikadeller are delicious! The recipes are written with measurements and easy to use.”
