My Grandmother introduced me to this book years ago by her use of it to make her annual batches of Swedish Pepparkakkor and Swedish Spritz cookies. She would (and still does) make them every December to those who are lucky enough to receive these yummy cookies! She uses this recipe, but instead of rolling out the Pepparkakkor cookies, she spreads them out in flat layers using a cookie press. The cookies are easy to make and lots of fun to decorate for kids and adults.
She also uses this book to make Swedish meatballs that are always a favorite of all who come to her annual holiday party! Everyone who tries them looks forward to her making them again next year!!
I now make the two cookie recipes every year (as they are my particular favorites), and I am also little by little trying out the other recipes. I am finding each one to be consistently great! I think that if you would like a few Swedish recipes that are tried and true terrific ones then this is the recipe book for you!!!!

Everything from this book taste like it just came out of Mormor's (Grandma) kitchen. I've had my copy for over 25 years and it still is the first cook book to go for something special to make. The Apple Cake recipe is to die for and is a number one favorite in our household, especially with tart apples like Greenings. The Lingonberry Cookie and Pepparkakor recipes are faithful used every Christmas, but also get used the rest of the year as well. The Fillet of Sole with White Sauce, Shrimp and Mushrooms recipe is popular in our family. The Almond Paste Twirl tea ring is a must have on a regular bases, but double the filling part for a sweet treat. I make this bread several times a month for family and friends. It is a favorite request of friends. The recipes for Jansson's Temptation and Marinated Salmon are easy to make and taste great. I often use these for smorgasbords. The Roasted Potatoes turn out perfectly every time and impress dinner guests. We dry our own fruit from local orchards and use these fruits in Fruit Soup. A must have for anytime of the year. The Kringlor is easy to prepare and looks so elegant at tea time. I use the St. Lucia Bun recipe the entire year, but only use Cardamom. It is an easy recipe to make pecan rolls as well.

Format: Paperback
"Superbly Swedish" is more than a Swedish cookbook. It is also offers a brief overview of Swedish history as well as a description of Swedish traditions and celebrations (e.g., Midsommar, Lucia Festival), and a brief description of Swedish-American institutions (such as Gustavus Adolphus College, Upsala College, etc.) and well-known Swedish Americans (Carl Sandberg, Edgar Bergen, etc.).

And then there are the genuine Swedish recipes. Having grown up in a Swedish-American home, this is a real treasure for me. From fruit soup to pickled herring, from rusks to Swedish rye bread, from Santa Lucia Buns to Swedish pancakes, from lutfisk to Swedish meatballs, from Kroppkakor to rice pudding, it's all there.

The middle pages of this book contain color photos of many of the recipes as well as Swedish institutions and celebrations. This is a neat addition to the rest of the book.

This book is great to have whether you're a Swede or are just interested in learning more about Swedish culture and cooking.
