Caroline Fleming, "Cook Yourself Happy: The Danish Way"
ISBN: 1911127284 | 2017 | EPUB | 256 pages | 26 MB
Cook Yourself Happy is a beautifully illustrated cookbook with over 100 delicious Danish recipes. This cookbook promotes the best of Danish cuisine, presenting a mouth-watering selection of authentic, traditional Danish recipes, which have been handed down through the generations.
The concept of 'hygge' plays a big part in Danish cuisine. It roughly translates as 'cosiness' and refers to activities such as sitting by the fire on a cold night, family and friends eating together, reading a good book - things that improve your quality of life. This book is firmly embedded in this concept – the recipes and ingredients that Caroline uses are drawn from classic Danish origins and influences, and her recipes are designed to improve your sense of wellbeing and to be shared with friends and family.
A wealth of recipes covers every meal and occasion – whether a light lunch of Warm Smoked Salmon with Pickled Cucumber, the heartier national dish of Stegt Flaesk (fried pork belly) or Pheasant Ragout, a delightful dessert of Baked Apples with Marzipan and Raisins, the most traditional of Danish pastries, or a wonderful Hot Chocolate with Orange Syrup, Cook Yourself Happy is filled with enriching food that your friends and family will adore.
Food, family and Denmark are Caroline's first loves, and this is echoed in the book with photographs of Caroline cooking at home, interspersed with gorgeous photographs of her family home in Denmark. Drawing on traditional age-old family recipes, this beautifully illustrated cookbook focuses on the most delicious and nourishing traditional Danish recipes that will boost your sense of wellbeing both inside and out.
