I am a lover of all foods and love when new cookbooks with new concepts / way of eating are published. I am not that familiar with the nordic diet but have heard eating like a viking was healthy and I love trying new recipes! The introduction is great and covers the whys and what to eat.
There is also a fascinating piece in the book regarding a norweigan chef who set up in London for the olympics – you have to read that part before getting stuck in to the recipes!Ahh the recipes…..They are mouth-watering good BUT they don’t just taste good, they taste amazing. I have bookmarked so many of the recipes and have actually ordered the paperback so I have have it to hand at home aswell as on my kindle.
Coquina soup was our lunch on Saturday and it was SOOO darn tasty. Saturday night we had the casserole of venison and topping off our Nordic weekend we had the lamb cheeseburgers on Sunday afternoon (with my sister and her boyfriend loving them too!) It’s great to have a book to new recipes and ones I really cannot wait to have over and over again.
This is a great guide to losing weight and becoming healthy through the proven diet known as, “The Nordic Diet.” The book starts off by describing the scientific studies that have been done that prove the efficacy of this increasingly popular diet; it certainly seems the benefits are real and this diet works out cheaper than other diets.
The recipes contained in this guide are unique, varied and delicious. Each one is explained well, with clear instructions. Nordic treats include; Anjali Pilchard Mouse, Malmo Potato Salad, Marinated and Stewed Rabbit, and Rhubarb Triffle.
Overall this is a well-written and engaging recipe book which includes some delicious Nordic flavours.
Nordic food is SEVERELY underrated. It’s almost impossible to find it anywhere out here in Los Angeles. But, this diet high in lean protein is directly in line with the health conscious culture of LA. I think this will be the next fad! I highly recommend this book. The recipes are traditional and delicious.
