Scandinavian Gatherings by Melissa Bahen

Scandinavian Gatherings: From Afternoon Fika to Midsummer Feast – 70 Simple Recipes and Crafts for Everyday Celebrations
by Melissa Bahen [641.594 ScaYb]

The subtitle of this fun book is “From Afternoon Fika to Midsummer Feast: 70 Simple Recipes and Crafts for Everyday Celebrations.” I enjoy reading all kinds of Scandinavian cookbooks, but this one really caught my attention because the author lives in the area of Oregon that my family lives in and talks about my favorite Scandinavian Festival held in Junction City every year. The book is filled with all kinds of authentic recipes, craft ideas and stories perfect to use at holiday celebrations and much more. The photographs and illustrations complement the stories and recipes very well. I highly recommend this book — even if you aren’t Scandinavian!
