Food has an incredible way to connect us to others, a means by which we show love. I’ve written for years here on Outside Oslo, about my grandmothers, those wonderful women who shared their hearts through the traditional Norwegian feasts and countless buttery cookies they made throughout the years. Their lives have inspired me as I’ve written about Scandinavian food for this past decade, and now it’s an honor to be putting a bit of that same heart in book form for you.
Modern Scandinavian Baking: A Cookbook of Sweet Treats and Savory Bakes is available for preorder now and will be released on April 14, 2020. (That’s just 53 days, but who’s counting?)
I’ve spent months officially creating this book, but really it contains the work of ten years of my heart.
I’ll let you hop online to read the publisher’s description, but this is what I want to say about it: The 60+ recipes reflect the essence of Scandinavian baking–all the love, hospitality, and warmth that I so associate with my heritage. You’ll find dozens of traditional Norwegian, Swedish, and Danish cakes, cookies, pastries, and breads, along with some playful interpretations of classics. I’ve also included some beloved heirloom recipes from my own Norwegian family and my husband’s Swedish family.
Hospitality is very important to me, and it’s my hope that this book will help you to share that beautiful Scandinavian-style warmth with those you love, whether it’s as simple as having a neighbor over for tea and cookies or celebrating a special event with a multilayered cake rich with pastry cream, berries, and marzipan.
Thanks to each of you who have followed along over the years–your support means the world.
I hope you love this book.
