Format: Paperback
This book is filled with great recipes. One of our favorites is the spice rye bread recipe that takes rye bread and infuses it with essence of orange and molasses.

The book is not laid out traditionally with one section for beverages, one for appetizers, one for main dishes etc. That means if you are seeking inspiration for what dessert to bring to a gathering you need to have an idea of what you are looking for and consult the index.

If you are interested in learning more about the cooking in Scandinavia as part of their culture and celebrations this is a great resource. For each season there are several menus revolving around specific celebrations. Most of the menus include drinks, appetizers, main dishes, and dessert.

So far we have enjoyed every recipe we've made!

I have started to really appreciate Scandinavian cooking as a great culinary tradition, and this book brings this to life in a way that few other cookbooks do, by focusing on celebratory meals. Unlike other cookbooks, this is organized by celebration rather than by category. In other words, one gets complete meal plans rather than the normal organization by category approach. This is then a great resource for what one might serve for a specific occasion or seasonal festival.

However, what this book could really use is a second index organized by category. Currently it's very difficult to locate a recipe unless you have a pretty good idea what it's called.

As a whole, this is an outstanding work all things considered. I would highly recommend it as a Scandinavian cookbook.
