This innovative selection of recipes highlights the best of modern Nordic food, themed around ancient cooking methods. Fire pits are easy and affordable to source, even portable types are available for those with limited outdoor space, and wood is re-emerging as a fuel source. The flavors achievable with this back-to-basics method of cooking are outstanding. Niklas’ book features plenty of fire-building tips and aromatic smoking recipes, but he doesn’t expect you to give up cooking in a traditional kitchen — a cast iron skillet over a gas flame will produce similar results.
Easy-to-find ingredients mix with easy cooking techniques to produce delicious family feasts and food for sharing. From simple Ember-baked Salmon with Cucumber and Fennel; to Cast-Iron Pan-Fried Lobster; to Hazelnut Cake, this is food to excite the appetite of the modern cook and inspire your next family or party gathering. Includes dual measures.
Niklas Ekstedt is founder of the Michelin-starred EKSTEDT, in Stockholm; a restaurant that uses only Scandinavian wood in its magnificent fire pit or its wood-fired oven to give the food a unique character. No electric cooker & no gas burners. EKSTEDT was named second in Zagat’s "Ten Hottest Restaurants in the World."
