From the Back Cover


explores Norway's culinary heritage in detail. Traditions and good basic ingredients are sources of inspiration for today's Norwegian chefs, and they serve as the departure point for the recipes in this book. Special attention is devoted to the cultural aspect of eating in Norway, giving a new dimension to the dishes presented. The recipes have been adapted for today's kitchen and for an English-speaking audience. Anyone who appreciates tradition and good food will find a treasure of both reading and dining in this book.

The Association of Norwegian Chefs has collected recipes from around the country under the direction of the Chefs' Guild in each county. Their goal has been to highlight the best dishes from every district.

350 recipes have been selected from the collected material, both local specialties and national favorites, some with long traditions, others newly created - the best the Norwegian kitchen can offer.
