Simply Scandinavian: Travelling In Time with Finnish Cuisine and Natureby Tero Kallio, Kimmo Saira
Simply Scandinavian presents modern takes on traditional Scandinavian recipes, combining time-tested Finnish food preparation with twenty-first century taste. The recipes are organized by time of year appetizers, main courses, and desserts for Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter. The authors have arranged the book to take the reader through a year of Scandinavian recipes, pairing gorgeous four-color photographs of Finlands landscapefrom the archipelago in the south to the harsh wilderness of Laplandwith mouthwatering food photography.
Many of the recipes open-mindedly integrate the past and the present, such as the recipe for rye cannelloni served in consomme; it contains a pinch of hard times in Finland, a dash of modern universal cooking, and a smidgeon of national romanticism. The shape comes from Italy, the filling from a Finnish meat pie, and the dough from the Karelian pastry from eastern Finland. Simply Scandinavian is a treat for adventuresome home cooks or anyone looking to escape into the beautiful landscapes and delectable flavors of Scandinavia.
