A superb cookbook of Tina's versions of classic Scandinavian dishes, as well as how she would adapt some dishes from the wider world to serve at home.
This beautifully-illustrated book is an enjoyable read from cover to cover (very rare in a cookery book these days...) covering her upbringing with her Grandmother (her parents owned and ran a famous spa hotel-restaurant) and the development of her career to become Sweden's #1 female celebrity chef (I recently heard her described as 'Sweden's female Jamie Oliver').
The fact that she worked her way up through the cookery world (as a youngster she once cooked in the kitchens at IKEA) gives her cookery writing a real, refreshing credibilty.
I first encountered Tina when a Swedish friend gave me the DVDs of her English-language TV series New Scandinavian Cooking (...well worth hunting for, by the way!) This book really reflects her inimitable, bubbly, quirky personality which has made her TV cookery shows so educative, amusing and entertaining.
The fact that Tina's first two cookbooks sold a million-plus copies shows how highly her cooking is regarded across Scandinavia. It never ceases to amaze me that she is so well-known across the US and Germany from her previous five books but so little-known here.
This super book deserves to bring her to the attention of a much wider audience in the UK and is certainly one book which will stay out in my kitchen to be used and not relegated to the sit on a bookshelf.
