Staff Reviews

Magnus Nilsson is the owner and creative genius behind Faviken, one of the most highly esteemed restaurants in the world. What makes him so interesting is that he only uses ingredients that he can harvest within just a few miles from his restaurant. He and his crew often go on morning foraging walks in the summer, and pickle and preserve so they have food for the restaurant in the winter.

He has only published a couple books in the past, and none of them ever had any baking recipes in them. The Nordic Baking Book is the holy grail of baking, and it's not even just a cookbook, it is a love letter to good food and the people who care about what they eat. It has recipes ranging from master level technicality, to as easy as traditional pancakes. This is a must have for any baking lover, and anyone who appreciates good, locally sourced ingredients.

The acclaimed chef featured in the Emmy-Award winning US PBS series The Mind of a Chef and the Netflix docuseries Chef's Table explores the rich baking tradition of the Nordic region, with 450 tempting recipes for home bakers

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.

From the publisher of Nilsson's influential and internationally bestselling Fäviken and The Nordic Cookbook.
