Ice, ice baby.

Exploring the rich culinary history of Scandinavian cuisine, Darra Goldstein’s Fire + Ice cookbook is so absorbing that you’ll be tempted to book a flight to Denmark (or Iceland, or Sweden) after first flipping through it—but wait. With recipes like Buttermilk Soup with Strawberries and Salt and Sugar Cured Salmon, this book makes it easy to replicate iconic Northern European flavors in your own kitchen, and the more expected, traditional recipes are rounded out by lesser-known dishes, giving Goldstein’s compilation both depth and a reason to reach for it time and again. Your copy comes with a signed bookplate.
