Trina Hahnemann's offering, The Scandinavian Cookbook , brings the essence of Scandinavia to life and to the table. Lars Ranek's food and landscape photography is just as remarkable as Trina's seasonal recipes.

Trina offers a modern twist on Scandinavia's traditions with wholesome and mouthwatering dishes organized by the calendar month. Her progressive take on taste celebrates the region's rich traditions of family meals and festivals, as well as its robust seasons, with simple recipes made from healthy and timely ingredients.

We get a sampling of the seasons with delicious recipes for an entire year's worth of fabulous and easy-to-prepare main courses, sides, desserts, and more. From Swedish Christmas Ham, Skagen Fish Soup, Salmon Burgers, and Kartoffelkage, to yummy Layer Cake with Strawberries and traditional Crisp Vanilla Danish Butter Cookies, readers will quickly discover that Scandinavian cooking is always in season.

Scandinavia may be a small region, but when it comes to food, its influence and impact are big.

Taste the traditions and the seasons.

* Cooks will enjoy 340 rich and evocative four-color photographs by Lars Ranek, who uniquely showcases the beauty he finds in the food and culture of Scandinavia.

Recipes readily found online.

Note that this is NOT a healthy diet cookbook, although author a couple of years alters "tries" to put together a healthy cookbook in the line of the so-called "new" Nordic Diet (which has been around actually since 2004 at least).... and fails terribly in that regard.

Follow these recipes if obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular problems are your goals!

(And the Atkins and other TRUE Me to Diets are even better!)
