Kitchen of Light: New Scandinavian Cooking with Andreas Viestad Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Andreas Viestad is Norway's premier food columnist, a gifted cook, and a charming ambassador from the "Land of the Midnight Sun." In Kitchen of Light he introduces us to his Norway — taking us fishing for cod, halibut, and salmon; gathering chanterelles, porcini, and wild berries; offering recipes that emphasize simple, fresh, and natural ingredients, whose flavors need little embellishment to create elegant and impressive dishes.

Through a variety of personal anecdotes and flavorful recipes, Viestad shares this philosophy of nature as he shows us the best way to cure gravlaks, make our own butter, prepare a midsummer night's feast of poached salmon, even how to flambé a pork tenderloin with Scandinavia's favorite spirit — Aquavit.

This inspired cookbook companion to the public television series New Scandinavian Cooking with Andreas Viestad will transport home cooks and armchair travelers alike.

Review:

"[A] perfect marriage of fresh recipes, most of which aren't too difficult, and clean layout and design. Author Viestad finds a nice balance between seriousness and fun in his brief texts..." Publishers Weekly
