If you want a book on Scandinavian ingredients and cooking, this is a great book. If you want a comprehensive cookbook or anything more advanced than a primer this book is not for you. The book would make a perfect gift to somebody that is food interested (nice print, good binding and paper, in addition to its content). It is vastly superior to The Scandinavian Cookbook.
Included are eggs and dairy, fresh fish and shellfish, preserved fish, poultry, meat, game and offal, vegetables, mushrooms, herbs, fruit, berries, breads and grains and festive food.
Be aware that there is not much variety in vegetables or fruit. Pictures are not always clear on which recipe they are illustrating and some recipes have the ingredients listed within the recipe instead of listed , as is usually done before the recipe directions.
You can learn how to smoke your own fish and have some adventurous cooking experiences. However, even with a family that has broad tastes, there were few recipes that mine would tolerate since so many have chervil or rye included. Lutefisk was a failure but the sun eggs were a hit.
This would be a cookbook for those wishing to try something new to add to their cookbook collection and learn something about Scandinavian cooking.
Its not thorough; still explains and presents basics (how-to collect, store and use mushroom, how-to smoke fish, 'sourdough'how-to's as well as baking 'danish') in a 'must-try-this-looks-easy'-appealing way.
Its NOT a translation; Camilla Plum actually wrote the book in english herself and is currently working on translating it back into her native danish
