The Scandi Kitchen: Simple, delicious dishes for any occasion

The Scandi Kitchen is an accessible and entertaining introduction to Scandinavian food, containing over 80 recipes to try at home. It was developed by Bronte Aurell, owner of the popular ScandiKitchen Cafe in London’s bustling West End.

There’s so much more to Nordic food than pickled herring and meatballs. Stretching from the midnight sun of northern Norway to the flat, fertile fields of Denmark, Scandinavian food culture is a lot more varied than you might think. Dishes and ingredients link all the regions together, bringing a uniquely Nordic food experience to life that was created by thousands of years of heritage and shared culture. Scandinavian food is simple. Natives call it ‘husmanskost’ (farmer’s fare). It’s natural and honest. When you work with the very best produce, there’s no need to overcomplicate it. Its appeal lies in the fact that it is healthy, wholesome, flavorsome, simple to make and beautiful to look at. 

The Scandi Kitchen features recipes for all occasions and times of the day, ranging from morning buns, lunchtime savories, hearty dinners and indulgent desserts, to bakes and other foods for special celebrations. Enjoy fresh and simple open sandwiches, healthy Nordic salads, delicious traditional hot dishes, and indulgent cakes. Discover new flavors and textures from mustard pickled herring and gravlax to sticky Kladdkaka cake. Alongside the recipes, the book includes enlightening features on traditional events throughout the Nordic calendar: find out what happens at an Easter crayfish party, why Swedes love a ‘fika’ (literally translates as ‘to meet up, have a coffee and a chat’), be inspired by the joyful Midsummer day celebrations, host a traditional Christmas glogg party, and get an insight into the tradition.
