I love it!!
I underestimated how good this book would be. There are so many recipes and a lot of pictures to illustrate what the recipe will look like when completed. And maybe even just to make you salivate.
There is a picture for nearly every recipe. The pictures are medium size and no frills, but I don't mind because this is such a great reference for any devoted baker.
I intend to make some of these items for my portfolio.
My biggest complaint is that for an ethnic cookbook they didn't print the original recipe names in Swedish! I wish that they had kept the original names AND the translated names in the printed book. Seeing the original name in an ethnic cookbook is great education and is really helpful if you travel to that country, meet someone from that country or go to an ethnic restaurant.
This translation of the most recent edition brings this classic to the non-Swedish-speaking world. And let's face it, almost nobody but Swedes ever bothers to learn that language.
These are not hard recipes to bake. If you're looking for things for fika, or for teatime, you can hardly do better than this book.
