Northern Europe, Scandinavia, Prose: non-fiction, Cooking, National & regional cuisine

We've long looked south for our food inspiration - but what about our neighbours to the north We share a climate, a history (those Vikings got everywhere) and a love of cool, from sleek Nordic design to clear frosty November mornings. We also share our love of the outdoors - bracing autumn days, bright spring mornings, lazy summers by the water and long winter walks - and the pleasure of sharing good food with friends around the kitchen table. Discover the secrets of Scandinavian cooking - from delicious healthy breakfasts and leisurely brunches to tasty suppers and plenty of stress-free crowd-pleaser puddings. Learn the knack of putting together the perfect smorrebrod for a speedy Scandi lunch, and discover some very more-ish cakes and biscuits to accompany your afternoon cuppa.From cinnamon chestnut bread, cardamom cream buns and home-made gravadlax to soups, salads, smoothies and much more, Signe Johansen, a young cook steeped in the traditions of Scandinavia and trained by the best British chefs, shows us that it's not all herrings and meatballs... although you will find them in here too. Fresh, light, surprisingly indulgent, this is food to lift your spirits - it's quite simply Scandilicious!
