Pure, fresh, simple cooking, straight from Scandinavia.

In the past decade, Nordic cuisine has reached cult status, thanks in large part to Noma restaurant in Copenhagen, which turns out some of the most innovative, exciting dishes the culinary world has ever seen. Behind the smash hit is Claus Meyer, co-owner, who is also a founder of the New Nordic Cuisine philosophy. New Nordic Cuisine seeks to express the purity, freshness, simplicity, and ethics associated with that region. In “Nordic Kitchen” Meyer brings that ethos into the family home with approachable dishes that celebrate each ingredient through simple preparations. Meyer divides his cookbook seasonally, highlighting special produce like wild garlic, rhubarb, elderberries, and chanterelle mushrooms.

You don’t need to be a forager in the Scandinavian forests to enjoy Meyer’s dishes; these are meals you can prepare easily for yourself or your family, without fussiness or long lists of ingredients. Soups like Creamy Kale, Onion with Cheese Toasts, and Mushroom with Meatballs will go into your weeknight rotation. Bring a bracing, bright note to your cooking with everything pickled: squash, cabbage, and Jerusalem artichokes. And be comforted by cozy dishes like Stuffed Tomatoes with Wheat Berries, Herbs and Fresh Goat Cheese or Roast chicken with Carrot Puree. Discover that simple food can be delicious food.
