"Tak For Mad" I believe Ms. Christensen has hit a home run at her first time at bat. Whether you specifically ejoy Danish cuisine, or just love good food, "Tak For Mad" is a must have for anyone's cookbook collection. The recipes are detailed, simple, and all have readily obtainable ingredients. Combine this with her running commentary about her family, this book is both charming and informative.
"Great book!" If you love good food and love Danish foods you'll definitely want to check out the cookbook. Throughout the pages Leah shares her memories of growing up surrounded by loving family and good food on the table. With each chapter we hear more memories about growing up and cooking along with some interesting reading on common food traditions in Denmark and Leah also includes bits of info and trivia throughout the book in grey text boxes. Most of the recipes are in US measurements but a couple like the Brown Cakes and Marzipan recipes are in metric measurements.The book is divided into the following chapters: Introduction Breads Appetizers Danish Open-Faced Sandwiches Main Courses Desserts, Candy & Other Sweets It has a lot of delicious sounding recipes and I love it! I can't wait to try more of them.. the Danish people have wonderful cuisine and this book represents them well.
"Tak for Mad" I have just received this first book by Leah Christensen, and I must say that she has done extremely well with this, her first effort. Leah's descriptions of her home life, with her parents and grandparents, and her presentation of the very many authentic Danish recipes, has been very well done, indeed and although I have just been able to skim the sections briefly, I have found some real dandy recipes there, that we will be trying out. Also my wife, Marie, who is the baker in our family, is anxious to have a go at some of those bread recipes. Tak, Leah...from old Doug in BC, who has been cooking for over 50 years, and who can't wait to try these on his Danish son in law!
