    How to Cook dishes from Norway

    Norway Much of Norway's land is either mountaineous or wilderness. Additionally, the country has a very long coastline and a long tradition of seafaring. As a result, traditional Norwegian cuisine tends to emphasize game and fish. Modern Norwegian cuisine has continued these traditions, but also introduced dishes brought into the country from abroad.

    Some popular Norwegian recipes and dishes include:
    • Fårikål - Mutton stew with cabbage. It is traditionally served with potatoes boiled in their skins.

    • Gravlaks - Salmon cured in sugar and salt, and seasoned with dill. Sometimes herbs and spices are used to flavor the dish.

    • Pinnekjøtt - Salted and dried smoked lamb's ribs. The ribs are rehydrated then steamed, and served with potato and mashed rutabaga. It is traditionally eaten at Christmas in western Norway.

    • Rakfish - Trout or char (another type of fish) fermented for two or three months, and eaten without cooking. It is usually served sliced with lefse (Norwegian flatbread made from potato, flour, and milk or cream), almond potato and raw red onion. Rakfish is not recommended for pregnant women, or people with a reduced immune defense.

    • Reinsdyrsteik - Reindeer steak.

    The Nordic Cookbook offers an unprecedented look at the rich culinary offerings of the Nordic region with 700 recipes collected by the acclaimed Swedish chef Magnus Nilsson featured in the Emmy-Award winning US PBS series The Mind of a Chef and the Netflix docuseries Chef's Table.

    The Nordic Cookbook, richly illustrated with the personal photography of internationally acclaimed chef Magnus Nilsson, unravels the mysteries of Nordic ingredients and introduces the region's culinary history and cooking techniques.

    Included in this beautiful book are more than 700 authentic recipes Magnus collected while travelling extensively throughout the Nordic countries – Denmark, the Faroe Islands, Finland, Greenland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden – enhanced by atmospheric photographs of its landscapes and people. His beautiful photographs feature in the book alongside images of the finished dishes by Erik Olsson, the photographer behind Fäviken.

    With Magnus as a guide, everyone can prepare classic Nordic dishes and also explore new ones.The Nordic Cookbook introduces readers to the familiar (gravlax, meatballs and lingonberry jam) and the lesser-known aspects of Nordic cuisine (rose-hip soup, pork roasted with prunes, and juniper beer).

    Organized by food type, The Nordic Cookbook covers every type of Nordic dish including meat, fish, vegetables, breads, pastries and desserts. These recipes are achievable for home cooks of all abilities and are accompanied by narrative texts on Nordic culinary history, ingredients and techniques including smoking and home preserving. Additional essays explore classic dishes made for special occasions and key seasonal events, such as the Midsummer feast.

    The Nordic Cookbook joins Phaidon's national cuisine series, which includes Mexico, India, Thailand, Peru and others, and is the most comprehensive source on home cooking from the Nordic countries.

    Gudrun’s Kitchen: Recipes from a Norwegian Family
    Product Description:

    The youngest of a large Norwegian immigrant family, Gudrun Thue Sandvold was known for her beaming blue eyes and a reserve that gave way to laughter whenever she got together with her sisters. She took immeasurable pride in her children and grandchildren, kept an exquisite home, and turned the most mundane occasion into a party. And to all who knew her, Gudrun’s cooking was the stuff of legend.

    Part cookbook, part immigrant story, and part family memoir, Gudrun's Kitchen features hundreds of Gudrun Sandvold’s recipes for comfort food from a time when families and friends gathered at the table and connected with one another every single day. But this book is much more than a guide to Norwegian culinary traditions; it is an important contribution to immigrant history and a vital documentation of our nation’s multicultural heritage.

    Product Description:
    The New Nordic celebrates contemporary Scandinavian cuisine with a focus on seasonal recipes that can easily be recreated at home. Filled with dishes that typify the food of this vast geographical region, this book takes its influence from the traditional ingredients that can be found from Sweden to Finland and Denmark to Norway, and transforms them into modern everyday recipes that are hugely popular throughout Nordic homes.

    The book is split into nine chapters, based on different food groups including ingredients found 'from the forest', 'from the sea', 'from the land', and 'in the larder', along with a basics chapter that demystifies classic Scandinavian cooking techniques such as smoking food and pickling. Recipes concentrate on modern, everyday dishes that use the freshest of ingredients and are simple to create. Indulge in beetroot carpaccio with goats cheese and minted pea relish, or enjoy the simplicity of fresh radishes with fennel butter and honey; move on to grander feasts such as flaked salmon burgers with mayonnaise, pickled cucumber and fresh horseradish or whole flounder with Nordic bread salad, beef with spiced wine sauce, kale and turnip or wonderful venison cooked with coffee, honey parsnips and rocket; and not forgetting the classics such as Swedish meatballs, Danish smorrebrod, pickled herrings and gooey cinnamon buns.

    At the end of the book there is a glossary explaining substitutes for hard-to-find ingredients along with a seasonal listing of typical Nordic ingredients. Matched with stunning Scandy-inspired photography throughout including imagery of landscapes, nature and produce shot on location, The New Nordic is a feast for all the senses.
