Food is the heart of a Scandinavian home: scrumptious pies, delicate pastries, millions of cookies, and, of course, savory breads. Each country -- Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Iceland -- has its specialty and no one goes hungry. In this mouthwatering collection, Beatrice Ojakangas calls on her own Scandinavian heritage and wide-ranging knowledge of baking to produce the definitive cookbook for this rich cultural heritage. Because Ojakangas stresses ease of preparation, even novice bakers will be able to make filled Danish pastries, Christmas buttermilk rye bread, or a few dozen pepparkakor, better known as gingersnaps. This handy reference highlights Scandinavian traditions too. There are recipes for sweet breads to be served with morning, afternoon, and evening coffee; for trays upon trays of cookies to serve as holiday or everyday treats; and for savory meat-and-vegetable pies.

Drawing upon her rich knowledge of Scandinavian cuisine and culture, expert chef and veteran writer Beatrice Ojakangas presents a multitude of delicious yet remarkably simple recipes in this cookbook classic, available in paperback for the first time. Scandinavian Feasts features the cuisine of Denmark, Norway, Sweden, and Finland, and it includes menus made up of a bounty of appetizers, drinks, smorgasbord, meats, fish, soups, vegetables, desserts, and breads. Easily as engaging as the dishes themselves, each recipe comes with an introduction that explains the cultural importance of the feast and details its seasonal significance. During the long, dark Scandinavian winter, the meals tend to be hearty and substantial. In Sweden and western Finland, a traditional Thursday lunch consists of pea soup and pancakes. A typical winter dinner might include Danish crackling roast pork with sugar-browned potatoes topped off with an irresistible ice cream cake. Christmastime gatherings, in particular, are often a chance to celebrate with a cup of hot glogg or Swedish punch. When the winter is finally over, the seemingly endless summer days are savored along with the fresh fruits and vegetables that are hard to find after the short growing season. During the white nights of Sweden and Norway, it is customary to serve a midnight supper after a concert or the theater, while a special occasion such as a baptism or anniversary might call for a feast of dill-stuffed whole salmon followed by kransekake, a beautiful towering ring cake of ground almonds.No matter what your level of expertise as a cook, the recipes are easy to use. The ingredients are commonly found in most grocery stores. Scandinavian Feasts is sure to delight enthusiasts of Scandinavian culture and lovers of fine food everywhere.Beatrice Ojakangas is the author of two dozen cookbooks, including The Great Scandinavian Baking Book (1999), also published by the University of Minnesota Press. Her articles have been published in Bon Appétit, Gourmet, Cooking Light, Cuisine, and Redbook, and she has appeared on television’s Baking with Julia Child and Martha Stewart’s Living.

More than one hundred delectable and satisfying soup and bread pairings from beloved James Beard Cookbook Hall of Famer Beatrice Ojakangas When eating out, Beatrice Ojakangas’s mother told her, you could never go wrong ordering soup. And then, of course, there should be bread to go with it. Beatrice has been sampling soup ever since, and in The Soup and Bread Cookbook the James Beard Cookbook Hall of Famer takes us along on her “soup travels,” giving us delicious tastes from throughout the world and teaching us how to make them at home. International yet rooted in the rhythm of the Minnesota seasons—ranging from the cool, refreshing soups of summer to hearty winter fare—these soups, stews, and chowders take their inspiration from farmers’ markets and local organic grocery stores: real ingredients, always, and irresistible flavors. Whether it’s a basic broth or stock or a long-simmering vegetable-filled stew, there is a bread to go along—enough to fill a cookbook on their own, in fact. Here we have new potato spring pea soup together with chive-dill batter bread, or spicy mango melon soup with lemon poppy seed muffins, or super-simple salmon chowder with sour rye buns, or good old chicken and dumpling soup with Dutch raisin bread—or perhaps your craving is satisfied with Asian lemon-ginger soup with sesame sunflower breadsticks, or Avgolemono soup with pita bread, or Polish Easter soup with sourdough rye, or Brie and apple soup with fougasse. Whatever your palate desires, The Soup and Bread Cookbook will, as The Splendid Table suggests, “banish the Campbell’s from your cupboard forever.” Pull up a chair. Open the book. Soup’s on!

Revel in the delights of baking from Scandinavia and the Nordic region with this treasure trove of the tastiest and most traditional recipes.

The Nordic Bakery is a small chain of highly successful little cafés that are dotted around London, all of which reflect the wholesome but comforting style of baking in Scandinavia. The emphasis is on fresh, seasonal produce and healthier baking ingredients, such as rye flour, oats, and barley, and the rustic but modern menu includes open rye-bread sandwiches, cakes, and cinnamon buns. The Nordic Bakery Cookbook allows you to bake your own Bread, such as the popular rye bread, Savory Pastries, Cakes, Sweet Buns, Desserts, and Biscuits in your own home.

Here are authentic Scandinavian recipes with a modern twist, shot on location in Scandinavia. The book is suffused with 'hygge', a Danish word that has no English equivalent but means cosiness, or relaxing with friends over good food and drink. Trine Hahnemann is the leading authority on Scandinavian baking, and here she holds the hand of the uninitiated baker and leads them through the mysteries of baking bread, always with an eye to the practicalities of creating great bread at home. Here you will find no complicated recipes, or sourdough starters that need as much tending as a baby. Instead, Trine teaches us how we can fit the making of bread into our busy lives, without compromising on quality. Scandinavian crispbreads abound, as do savoury tarts and recipes from the smorrebrod. And then there's the sweet baking - a recipe for each kind of Danish pastry you could ever wish for, a cookie for every occasion, and mouth-watering layer cakes, coffee cakes and cream buns. The Midsummer and Christmas festivities are built around the making of cakes, cookies and breads of all sorts, and the baking celebrations of both seasons are included in the book. Throughout the book, Trine writes about the baking world in Scandinavia: the tradition of the 'cake table' party; how spices came to the frozen north; or how using older strains of grain will boost the nutritional worth of your daily bread.

The food cultures of Scandinavian countries are similar in important ways but also have many different traditions because of variations in geography and climate and unique social, cultural and political history. Food Culture in Scandinavia covers Denmark, Norway, Sweden, and Iceland's unique and common foodways, all in the context of significant recent changes. This is the most exhaustive overview available in English with all the latest insight. Students writing country reports and food mavens get the up-to-date scoop from an insider on how Scandinavians eat and live. Readers see how everyday food habits are quickly changing in Scandinavia, mostly in urban areas and among the younger generation. The trends are shown to stem from Scandinavians travelling more, Americanization and globalization, new immigrants bringing their cuisines, classic national and regional products being revitalized, high-end restaurants for the new business elite springing up, and a growing interest in healthful and organic food. The Historical Overview chapter lays the groundwork to understand the evolution from the traditional Scandinavian fare—fish, porridge, bread, milk. A chapter on major foods and ingredients elaborates on these staples and more and updates their use. In the Cooking chapter, the new gender dynamics are discussed in terms of who is shopping and cooking and especially the impact of the supermarket. Typical Meals discusses the mainstays for daily fare and notes the biggest changes in the choices of pizza and fast food for youth. Eating out in Scandinavia is becoming more common, and Chapter 5 highlights the growing options for casual family meals out, business and school lunches, as well as take-out food and more. The Special Occasions chapter illuminates the major events in the calendar, especially the magical Christmas time plus the famous seasonal fests such as Midsummer in Sweden and life-cycle events such as weddings, where innovation is expected. A final chapter on diet and health emphasizes the familiar health concerns related to diets too high in fat and sugar and too low in vegetables and fruit. A timeline, selected bibliography, illustrations, and classic recipes complement the narrative.
