'A joy to behold' Yotam Ottolenghi
Join Rachel Khoo on a delicious journey through the Swedish year . . . From spring picnics on the archipelago and barbecues at the summer cabin, to cosy autumnal suppers and dark snowy winters filled with candlelight, gingerbread and gloegg.
Complete with stunning location and food photography, Rachel's new cookbook lets you in on what the Swedish like to call Lagom . . . the art of not too little, not too much but just the right amount. Learn how to cook beautiful, fuss-free food . . .
With over 100 recipes, Rachel explores Sweden's simple and balanced approach to cooking, celebrates their best-loved ingredients and reveals a must-try cuisine that is about far more than just meatballs, fika and cinnamon buns . . .
Inside you'll discover recipes from the Swedish summer, perfect for yours, food for autumn, through to winter, taking you all the way to spring . . .
* POACHED CHICKEN WITH QUICK PICKLED STRAWBERRY SALAD. Or replace the chicken with grilled halloumi cheese for a delicious vegetarian alternative. This is the ultimate barbeque salad.
* PEAS, POTATOES AND CHICKEN IN A POT. The one dish delight: the summer comfort food that's perfect for midweek.
* MIDSUMMER MERINGE CROWNS. The Swedes have been wearing flower crowns long before the festivals, so why not make the edible kind for parties or puddings?
* PLUM TOSCA CAKE. This Swedish favourite, named after Puccini's opera is filled with tart plums and sweet almonds.
