What an adventurous year 2012 has been! It was a banner year for me, of course, because of Adams Media's publication of my first cookbook, The Everything Nordic Cookbook. Yet perhaps the best part of this project was that it encouraged me - in alignment with the tenets of the "New Nordic Cuisine" movement - to heighten my focus upon planning our meals around ingredients that are seasonal, fresh, and local. Who knew that dandelion greens tasted so good? Or that it was so easy to make Icelandic skyr at home? Inspired by this list of 2012's Scandinavian Food highlights, I can't wait to see what 2013 holds!.
