Additional Details

Description: Scandinavia forms the northernmost region of Europe and includes the countries of Sweden, Norway, Denmark, and Finland. Their shared history, traditio. ns, and customs can be traced back to the days of the Vikings and naturally the cooking also has elements in common. However, once you explore the different cuisines you will find that each country has retained its own unique and unmistakable flavor. 

The key to Nordic cuisine is climate. For the long, cold winters people traditionally had to store supplies and this led to an unparalleled selection of delicious dried, smoked and cured meat and fish. In winter the emphasis is on game and wild mushrooms, simmering hot stews, and home-baked bread. In summer and fall, by contrast, recipes make the most of the abundance of fresh meat and fish, vegetables, fruits, and berries. 

Scandinavian Cooking contains a well-chosen selection of recipes from all four countries, bringing together the best and most distinctive tastes from each one. There is useful information on how to serve the food as well as fascinating insights into the traditions and customs associated with particular dishes.
