I first discovered this book via 101 Cookbooks when Heidi highlighted the Black Bean Brownie recipe. I was hesitant at first (like I'm sure everyone was), but I'm so glad I gave it a try. I have since bought the cookbook and have been super happy with it. The only critique, if you could call it that, is the fact that agave and cookies are not a natural pairing. The cookie recipes have not worked so well for me. But agave is a great sugar substitute, and works even better than sugar for many of these recipes. (For cookies, though...

Most of the Scandinavian cookbooks I have seen were a bit fussy - not at all like the design ethic one might expect! This cookbook is beautiful and highlights basic, solid recipes that keep today's food trends in mind. Next to the gorgeous photography by Lars Ranek, my favorite aspect of the book is the thoughtfulness of dividing the book in 12 chapters - one for every month, keeping everything seasonal (and in my case, regional). Great meat and fish dishes, though I think the dessert recipes really stand out.
