If you love to bake, you’ll definitely want to pick up a wonderful cookbook, Modern Scandinavian Baking: A Cookbook of Sweet Treats and Savory Bakes by food writer and journalist, Daytona Strong. It includes traditional baked goods from Norway, Denmark, and Sweden, many of which are served in all three countries. The author’s love and enthusiasm is evident in her recipes and the comments she makes in her introductions of each of the recipes. It makes cooks and readers wish they were part Scandinavian and have been enjoying these delicacies for years.

The recipes are well-written and easy-to-follow. The author has included a list and description of Scandinavian ingredients to stock up on, as well as basic tools needed. Some of the recipes are from the author’s relatives, and that makes it seem more personal and adds to the charm of the cookbook. Actually, the only thing missing from this cookbook is photographs. While there are a few (one at the beginning of each chapter), cooks want to know what their dishes should look like when they are finished, and this isn’t possible here.

To be honest, there isn’t even one recipe in this excellent cookbook that I don’t want to try (or haven’t already tried). This cookbook is awesome, and if it weren’t for the unfortunate lack of photographs, it would be a perfect cookbook. I love having it in my cookbook collection, use it often, and recommend it highly.

Special thanks to NetGalley for supplying a review copy of this book.
