Aquavit: And the New Scandinavian Cuisine Reviews
I initially called it "herring fusion," but now that I've sat with Aquavit for a couple of months, I must apologize. There are precious few recipes for herring, in aside from the emphasis on seafood and its liberal use of dill, there's little that would connect these recipes to the food of my people. Most of the recipes are imaginative and relatively easy considering its in one of those restaurant grade food porn books that I would feel compelled to leave lying out on a coffee table.
A broad look at Scandinavian cuisine from one of the masters, Marcus Samuelsson. The chef/author grew up in Sweden and many of his memories personalize the book. The photographs are stunning and many of the recipes seem doable at home--I have copied several to try myself. A gorgeous book.
Aquavit is where Nick and I had our rehearsal dinner before our wedding! Best smorsgasbord brunch in the city.
Definately a Food Porn Book.
Nothing here that my Swedish mom cooked. And yet, delicious and updated recipes. The combinations suggested by chef Marcus are inspiring and loads of background info makes for good read too!
Reading this book is like visiting another country. I bought ketjap manis, learned better ways to cook salmon, and relished Samuelsson's focus and style.
