Kitchen of Light
The New Scandinavian Cooking

by Andreas Viestad

Kitchen of Light 

Andreas Viestad is Norway's premier food columnist, a gifted cook, and a charming ambassador from the Land of the Midnight Sun. In Kitchen of Light he introduces us to his Norway—taking us fishing for cod, halibut, and salmon; gathering chanterelles, porcini, and wild berries; offering recipes that emphasize simple, fresh, and natural ingredients, whose flavors need little embellishment to create elegant and impressive dishes.

Through a variety of personal anecdotes and flavorful recipes, Viestad shares this philosophy of nature as he shows us the best way to cure gravlaks, make our own butter, prepare a midsummer night's feast of poached salmon, even how to flambé a pork tenderloin with Scandinavia's favorite spirit—Aquavit.

This inspired cookbook companion to the public television series New Scandinavian Cooking with Andreas Viestad will transport home cooks and armchair travelers alike.
