Scandinavian food is simple. When you work with the very best produce, there's no need to over complicate it.We call it husmanskost - farmer's fare. It's natural and honest, made with the staple produce found on the land.
Besides creative touches to the traditional recipes and some simple vegan cheese recipes to elevate your dishes, you will also find some gastronomic encounters between Italy and Sweden.
Author tried to convey more vividly by gourmet plates such as marinated beluga in gl gg-Sweden's festive beverage- a kind of mulled wine served with spaghetti and celeriac sauce. It is just fantastic with distinctly different levels of spicy sweetness of gl gg with cherris and an earthy dish of celeriac.
"New Nordic Meets Old Italian" also focuses on gourmet pasta sauces with unfamiliar edible plants that are prepared based on Italian cooking traditions, perfectly paired with dried pasta shapes. The aim of this book is to encourage chefs to create a delicious plant based pasta menu in using 100% plants in the kitchen.
