WIN the trilogy of our cookbooks

March 9, 2018 | Leave a comment


WIN our 3 cookbooks

A few years ago, we had a dream of writing a cookbook. So we did it; it was called The ScandiKitchen and it was all about the food we cook at home.

It proved to be a very popular book – so the year after, the even more popular Fika & Hygge was born – lots of great bakes and sweet stuff from all over Denmark, Sweden and Norway. It even got translated into Italian, French, German, Czech and Russian and it is still – several years later – hovering around the top Scandinavian cookbooks in the UK on Amazon.

Next week sees the release of our third cookbook with RPS – this one is called Summer. All about the green nature and lighter days and the time of the year when we are outdoors all the time.

So, we now have a trilogy – and this week, to celebrate the launch, you can WIN a signed copy of each book – plus one of our new fancy ScandiKitchen mugs and a May The Norse Be With You bag to carry it all in.

To enter the competition, all you have to do is answer this question:

Recipe: Korv Stroganoff

Korv Stroganoff. Ask any Swede and they’ll tell you all about this quick mid-week favourite meal. It’s delicious, even if it isn’t the most photogenic of dishes.

Made with Falukorv, a cooked pork sausage, this dish takes only ten minutes to put together. Falukorv can be bought in our cafe shop or also on Ocado. We highly recommend the brand Per I Viken for the high meat content and great smoked flavour.

Serve with rice.
