Beautiful book, but realistically more of a coffee table book than an actual recipe guide
on November 11, 2011
This book is beautifully made; gorgeous photography, elegant writing, and fascinating recipes. The book does not present a dumbed down version of the restaurants' intricate menu items. As a home cook, recreating these dishes listed would be a challenge for many reasons. Firstly, if you're not already in Scandinavia, access to many of the local ingredients would be nearly impossible. Also, techniques described are very refined and may require use of some out of the ordinary kitchen equipment and also a very knowledgeable food industry professional to execute. Use the book for inspiration, but attempting to recreate what one of the world's best chefs does in a professional kitchen would most likely be a challenge left defeated.
