The Nordic Baking Book is a comprehensive collection of sweet and savoury recipes that the Swedish chef Magnus Nilsson has collected during his journeys through the Nordic countries. Ranging from cinnamon buns and rye bread to less-known pastries, cakes and other traditional delicacies from different regions, the recipes are complemented by beautiful photography by Nilsson. Magnus Nilsson (b. 1984) is the head chef of the Swedish Fäviken Magasinet and has appeared in the TV shows Mind of a Chef and Chef's Table.
Nordic culture is renowned for its love of baking and baked goods: hot coffee is paired with cinnamon buns spiced with cardamom, and cold winter nights are made cozier with the warmth of the oven. No one is better equipped to explore this subject than acclaimed chef Magnus Nilsson. In The Nordic Baking Book, Nilsson delves into all aspects of Nordic home baking - modern and traditional, sweet and savory - with recipes for everything from breads and pastries to cakes, cookies, and holiday treats.
No other book on Nordic baking is as comprehensive and informative. Nilsson travelled extensively throughout the Nordic region - Denmark, the Faroe Islands, Finland, Greenland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden - collecting recipes and documenting the landscape. The 100 photographs in the book have been shot by Nilsson - now an established photographer, following his successful exhibitions in the US.
