We are all drooling over the stunning cover for Lagom: The Swedish Art of Eating Harmoniously, the debut book from the supremely talented cookery writer and food stylist Steffi Knowles-Dellner, which publishes this October.
Lagom: n. just the right amount, balanced, harmonious.
The Independent has already picked out this title and named it as one of its 10 best Scandinavian cookbooks:
“Lagom” – you can count in alongside those other trendy Scandi words, hygge and fika – is a Swedish term, loosely translated as “just the right amount”. Accordingly, this book, written by a Swedish food blogger, is about eating well and in balance: everything in moderation. The sweet potato and leek gratin and crispy sliced and stacked potatoes (a simple version of hasselback) are our favourites, but the meatier offering (tenderloin, pork cheeks, schnitzel) is more traditional.
