The Nordic Baking Book | Phaidon Publishing

The acclaimed chef Magnus Nilsson from the Emmy-Award winning US PBS series "The Mind of a Chef" and the Netflix docu-series "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 cosier with the warmth of the oven. No one is better equipped to explore this subject than Magnus Nilsson. In The Nordic Baking Book, Nilsson delves into all aspects of Nordic home baking - modern and traditional, sweet and savoury - 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.
