Splendid Swedish Recipes, in the popular recipe-card file size Stocking Stuffer format, is chock-full of the best recipes and notes on Swedish cuisine. Compiled by Kerstin Olsson Van Gilder, who came to America from Sweden in 1961, and refers to Swedish foods as "cooking the naturally delicious way." The Swedish diet consists mainly of fish (herring) and potatoes, making the food lighter than traditional American cuisine. This cookbook is inspired by the Swedish love of wholesome, natural foods. The cover shows a little girl in a Swedish folk-style outfit.
In addition to recipes, Splendid Swedish Recipes contains information on The Smorgasbord (a long table buffet Scandinavian tradition), Foods for Special Holidays and Seasons, Notable Sites and Events as well as historical information on the Swedish-American Experience. The book offers you plenty to choose from to make a Swedish feast for family and friends. Try the Swedish Kale Soup or the Swedish Meatballs. Stuffed Cabbage and Rye Bread will suit almost any table! And desserts are the Swedish specialty! Try the Coffee Bread or the Cocoa Balls to end the perfect meal! This is just a sampling of what is offered!
This book is excellent for personal collections and as a gift for anyone interested in Swedish cooking and heritage.

I got this cookbook as a Christmas give for my Swedish wife. She loves the dessert recipies, especially the Cocoa Balls and the Coffee Bread. If you combine this book with "Good Food from Sweden" by Inga Norberg, you'll never lack for recipies to remind you of your Swedish roots.

You might lose friends with this "stocking stuffer"

This book is not uniquely or traditionally Swedish in any way. The amount of sugar, white flour, corn starch, etc. typical of grandma's conventional recipes is huge.

These recipes are just a lot of the same old, same old junk food recipes of all countries - only with a Swedish title.

This is old stuff, and nothing new or unique. Moldy leftovers from the 20th century, it is industrial-era empty calorie stuff. It was written in the 1980s but was even obsolete then. The people who gave it five stars must be new to cooking and/or never heard of healthy food, much less organic or natural food.

Can't imagine the shapely healthy progressive Swedish culture eating this stuff (though I am sure there is a subculture there that does eat it.) They would have a much higher obesity rate, maybe even higher than ours in the fat ole U.S.A. if most Swedes ate this, and their kids would all be hyperactive.
