    As a youngster growing up in rural Texas in a Norwegian family with immigrant grandparents, a Norwegian Mother and five first generation Norwegian Aunts I always looked forward to the Christmas holiday period as so many goodies came from those kitchens. Up until my Grandfather's death in 1953, he prepared the Lutefisk each year in the traditional manner. The dried fish was available in a local market so that it could be purchased and prepared properly. My Mother would even save fireplace ashes for my Grandfather to use in his preparation of the lye. In our Central Texas area near Clifton was Norse and Cranfils Gap. The Lutheran Church in Cranfils Gap hosted an annual Lutefisk dinner as a fund raiser. For some years after my Grandfather's death my family would attend that dinner so we could still have our Lutefisk. Later when Lutefisk was available frozen my Aunt's would purchase it so that we could continue our family tradition. The Thanksgiving holiday in late November signaled the beginning of the Christmas baking season. Three of my Aunts would work together to prepare the holiday baked goods and candies. I remember specifically their preparing the Fattigman cookies, although never using the Cognac in their alcohol free kitchens. Seeing this ingredient in this cookbook entices me to attempt this recipe using some Cognac. But, the more pressing issue with the Fattigman preparation was the weather's humidity on the days of preparing and thereafter. The air tight storage container is essential as the Fattigman cookies lose their special appeal when they are no longer crisp and crunchy. In later years I was fortunate to travel to Norway multiple times to meet family and further enjoy many of the unique and special culinary treats of this cuisine. On that very first trip in 1968 we had trays of Smorbrod set before us with their endless variety of toppings and we were overwhelmed. But, even this did not prepare us for the dessert, a huge platter of cold vanilla ice cream in the middle surrounded by cloud berries. Almost every page of this book brings back some special memory.

    My mom and I are into family history research and found out that we have relatives and many ancestors from Norway. We decided to purchase this book as well as "Scandanavian Cooking and "The Great Scandanavian Baking Book" and make some of the food that our ancestors would have made. This was such as fun bonding experience and I definitely reccomend this book! I have to say that I preferred "Scandanavian Cooking" over this book, however. I found the recipes were more do-able. For example in this book a recipe using reindeer is listed. I'm not ever sure where you would even find reinder meat! Plus if the kids ever found out--- I can only imagine what they would think of me cooking Santa's reindeer for dinner! haha. I still did enjoy this book though and would reccomend.

    Nice book, too busy to start cooking up any of the recipes yet, but the condition of the book was very acceptable. I received it quickly. I am happy with the purchase.

    Being or Norwegian descent, this is a good guide. I purchased it for a friend whose heritage is also Norwegian.

    My husband is Norwegian and I am Irish and Italian. We were at Epcot Center and stopped in Norway and had some lunch. Well, we enjoyed it so much that we purchaed the cookbook. The food in this cookbook brings back memories of his childhood. I would recommend this to anyone.

    So many recipes that are like my mother made! She recently passed away and I bought this book for my own daughters so they would remember ther heritage and grandmother.

    Interesting cookbook. I'm always looking for yumlicious new foods. Some of this food I think only a Norwegian mother could love...but its great to see how the rest of the world eats.
