Norwegian Centennial Recipes, 1825-1925
Dimensions: 3-1/2 x 5-1/2 inches
In 1925, Minnesota celebrated the centennial of the first Norwegian settlers to arrive in America. A small blue book called the Norse-American Cookbook collected the recipes of immigrant Norwegians and their descendants.
The volume remains a reliable resource for early Norwegian cooking in America–including cooking on a wood stove–and forms the basis for this edited and updated collection.
The index of recipes include breads, soups, meat, fish, fish sauces, salads, porridges, puddings, desserts, cakes, and cookies.
Norma Wangness, a gold medal winner of rosemaling competition, designed the front and back covers.
