Overview

Recipes for savory and authentic morsels from the north country, now in paperback!Food is the heart of a Scandinavian home: scrumptious pies, delicate pastries, millions of cookies, and, of course, savory breads. Each country—Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Iceland—has its specialty and no one goes hungry. In this mouthwatering collection, Beatrice Ojakangas calls on her own Scandinavian heritage and wide-ranging knowledge of baking to produce the definitive cookbook for this rich cultural heritage.Because Ojakangas stresses ease of preparation, even novice bakers will be able to make filled Danish pastries, Christmas buttermilk rye bread, or a few dozen pepparkakor, better known as gingersnaps. This handy reference highlights Scandinavian traditions too. There are recipes for sweet breads to be served with morning, afternoon, and evening coffee; for trays upon trays of cookies to serve as holiday or everyday treats; and for savory meat-and-vegetable pies.The Great Scandinavian Baking Book will warm your heart and fill your stomach.Beatrice Ojakangas is the author of more than a dozen cookbooks, including Great Whole Grain Breads (1993) and The Finnish Cookbook (1989). Her articles have appeared in Bon Appétit, Gourmet, Cooking Light, Cuisine, and Redbook, and she has appeared on television’s Baking with Julia Child. She lives in Duluth, Minnesota.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Scandinavian cookbooks tend to focus on Finland, Sweden, and Denmark; Ojakangas, author of several previous books on the subject, here includes recipes from Iceland as well. There are hearty ``breads for meals,'' rich and delicate cookies, cakes and pies, and breads for ``coffeetime,'' which can be a formal, three-course occasion. A diverse selection of national specialties, for larger collections. JS
