'A joy to behold' Yotam Ottolenghi
Learn how to cook the Swedish way with this beautiful book of over 100 delicious recipes.
Spring picnics on the archipelago; barbecues at the summer cabin; cosy autumnal suppers; and dark snowy winters filled with candlelight, gingerbread and glögg - the Swedes love to celebrate every season via the food they eat.
Complete with stunning location and food photography, and over 100 beautiful, fuss-free recipes, this cookbook lets you in on what the Swedish call lagom . . . the art of not too little, not too much, but just the right amount.
Explore the nation's simple and balanced approach to cooking, sample their best-loved ingredients and discover a must-try cuisine that is about far more than just meatballs, fika and cinnamon buns . . .
Inside you'll find recipes for sunny days or cosy evenings, celebrations or nights curled up at home, such as:
· POACHED CHICKEN WITH QUICK PICKLED STRAWBERRY SALAD. The ultimate barbecue salad. Replace the chicken with grilled halloumi cheese for a delicious vegetarian alternative.
· PEAS, POTATOES AND CHICKEN IN A POT. The one dish delight: summer comfort food that's perfect for midweek.
· MIDSUMMER MERINGUE CROWNS. The Swedes have been wearing flower crowns since long before festival-goers discovered them. Now you can make beautiful edible ones for parties or puddings.
· PLUM TOSCA CAKE. This Swedish favourite, named after Puccini's opera, is filled with tart plums and sweet almonds.
