A cooking book filled with healthy, sustainable Nordic recipes designed to bring the whole family together.
A former culinary consultant to the team behind renowned restaurant Noma, Danish chef Mikkel Karstad has been instrumental in popularizing Northern European cooking. In his book, Nordic Family Kitchen, he introduces readers to the simplicity and versatility of the Nordic cuisine through 73 recipes and beautiful photographs by Anders Schønnemann. Images show not only mouth-watering dishes, but also Mikkel Karstad’s foraging trips with his four children. Specially designed to bring the whole family together, whether at the dining table at home or around the camping fire in the woods, these meals promote healthy, eco-conscious eating habits.
The beautifully designed hardcover cookbook features ten chapters with breakfast, lunch and dinner dishes that everyone in the family, young and old, can enjoy and savor. Ranging from easy to more advanced, the recipes encourage kids to hone their cooking skills. Additionally, the simple ingredients showcase the variety of flavors found in nature, from foraging in the woods to picking herbs in the garden. The recipes include everything from pancakes, sandwiches, and salads to breads, pasta, tarts, and cakes. Filled with vegetables, fruit, whole grains, and herbs, the largely meat-free meals show the delicious side of healthy, sustainable cooking.
Perfect for amateur cooks and experienced chefs in equal measure, the Nordic Family Kitchen book offers the best solution to introduce young and older children to both cooking and healthy food. Buy your copy here. Photography by Anders Schønnemann.
