This innovative selection of recipes highlights the best of modern Nordic food, themed around ancient cooking methods. Fire pits are easy and affordable to source, even portable types are available for those with limited outdoor space, and wood is re-emerging as a fuel source.

Considering how little specialist equipment is required, the flavors achievable with this back-to-basics method of cooking are outstanding. Niklas’ book naturally features plenty of fire-building tips, aromatic smoking recipes, pickling and preserving techniques, but he doesn’t expect you to go foraging for ingredients or to give up cooking in a traditional kitchen—a cast iron skillet over a gas flame will produce similar results.

Easy to find ingredients mix with easy cooking techniques to produce delicious family feasts and food for sharing. From simple Ember-baked Salmon with Cucumber and Fennel; to Cast-Iron Pan-Fried Lobster, Saffron Mayonnaise and Pickled Vegetables; to Hazelnut Cake, Warm Cloudberries and Yogurt, this is food to excite the appetite of the modern cook and inspire your next family or party gathering.
