by Beatrice Ojakangas.
Noted cookbook author Beatrice Ojakangas spent a year in Finland, and as she explored the country of her ancestors, she met people who, like herself, just love to cook. Her curiosity about the country’s rich cuisine led to her being invited to roll up her sleeves and don an apron in the kitchens of both relatives and brand new acquaintances across Finland. Everywhere she went, she eagerly exchanged American recipes for Finnish family treasures. The result is this cookbook, a guide to typical dishes from every region of the country. Each recipe includes its Finnish name as well as comments about the dish’s importance in Finnish culture. The author had her eyes and ears tuned to other aspects of Finnish life, too, and, throughout the cookbook, she shares her observations about the Finnish character, language, sense of humor, and style of living.
