Some home cooks might find baking and unfamiliar cuisines a bit of a challenge. So they may be surprised that we're recommending they have a go at some of the recipes in The Nordic Baking Book.

Why? Well, in this short video its author, the acclaimed Swedish chef Magnus Nilsson, says reveals why the book is so remarkably simple to cook from. “The vast majority of the recipes are being reproduced everyday in Scandinavian homes,” he says, “they’re very easy to approach.” Magnus even used to make one recipe – chocolate oatmeal balls – when he was a school kid.




Also, plenty of these Nordic recipes bear strong similarities to the kind of baked goods you might find in France, Italy or England. “People have been travelling and have been sharing cultural information for a very long time,” Magnus explains.
