Nevada Berg’s first cookbook, North Wild Kitchen, was chosen as one of the year’s best cookbooks by the New York Times. Now she returns with all new recipes for mouthwatering baked goods that will transport readers back to the Norwegian landscape. Organized according to Norway’s five seasons, the book features ninety sweet and savory recipes and includes traditional baked goods for Norwegian holidays and other celebrations and special occasions. Stunning photography captures the delicate details of Nevada’s mountain farm home, showing how the seasons shape what’s going into the oven and onto the plate each time of the year: Rustic Spelt Crackers, Candied Almond Cake, Wild Blueberry and Oregano Bread, Troll Cream Oatmeal Cookies, or Lefse with Cinnamon Buttercream. Each recipe is introduced by a brief mood-setting text, incorporates the best ingredients each season has to offer, and is also entirely adaptable to anyone’s pantry. Steeped in Nordic tradition, but delivered with a thoroughly modern twist, this new collection will enlarge Nevada’s growing fan base while delighting home cooks who have already discovered the pleasures of her unique sensibility.
