While I've been disciplined about doing all the recipe books in the exact order they happened to be on the shelf at the start of this challenge, there is one little book I've been conveniently shuffling further and further down the line:
I've always said there's much to love about scandinavia, but in my opinion, the food is definitely not one of them. Check out a page from the index above. Mmm.. Herring. I admit that someone who loved fish might find something good in here, but it seems that even the simplest of recipes has some sort of nightmarish scandinavian 60s influence twist to it - like mayonnaise in an omelette or pancakes with peas.
I really don't know how this book found its way onto the shelf in the first place - I certainly didn't bring it into the house. Even in my most optimistic moments I haven't found anything I've been interested in making, so I was more than happy to let this book sneakily slide out of the house (no doubt similar to the way it arrived) courtesy of a family dinner guest. Thanks Greg!
