Nordic Bakery Cookbook by Miisa Mink
This new cookbook features the products from the Nordic Bakery, a
peaceful haven in the heart of London's bustling West End. Launched in
2007, the bakery and cafe emphasizes seasonal produce and healthier
baking ingredients, such as rye flour, oats and barley reflecting the
comforting style of baking in Scandinavia. Each recipe is accompanied
by full-color photography, and ingredients use U.S. measurements.
This wonderful book would make a perfect gift for the baker on your gift-giving list. This is not Grandma Carlson's baking style. No lefse here. These are contemporary Scandinavian bakery items!
