The Nordic Cookbook offers an unprecedented look at the rich culinary offerings of the Nordic region with 700 recipes collected by the acclaimed Swedish chef Magnus Nilsson. While traveling extensively throughout the Nordic countries – Denmark, the Faroe Islands, Finland, Greenland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden, Magnus collected recipes and photographed the finished dishes, as well as the landscape and its people. This beautiful volume, richly illustrated with Magnus Nilsson’s personal photography, unravels the mysteries of Nordic ingredients and introduces Nordic culinary history and cooking techniques. With Magnus as a guide, everyone can cook their favorite Nordic dishes and explore new ones, introducing you to the familiar (smoked salmon, meatballs and lingonberry jam) and less familiar (rose-hip soup, pork roasted with prunes, and juniper and honey beer) aspects of Nordic cuisine. The Nordic Cookbook joins Phaidon’s Mexico the Cookbook, India, Thailand, and others as the definitive cookbook on home cooking from the Nordic countries, including Denmark, the Faroe Islands, Finland, Greenland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden.

A catalogue not a cook book A beautiful book and really enjoyed looking at it and kind of enjoy owning it too.Practically it’s more like a catalogue of my sock drawer than a compendium of what is unique from Nordic cuisine.

Beautiful cookbook One of the most beautifully written and detailed cookbooks I have ever seen. Phaidon is a good publisher of cookbooks so I wasn’t surprised but it’s definitely my favourite cookbook. It tells you a lot about the context of why dishes are eaten in those countries, something that’s extremely important when considering Nordic cuisine and eating habits both now and in the past. Some of the recipes are obviously impractical (I’m not gonna go ferment some shark for my dinner for example) but the…
