Potato & Vegetable Dishes

Because of their short growing season, Scandinavians, like all northern Europeans, were long forced to rely primarily upon potatoes and a limited number of root vegetables to see them through their long winters. Yet even as Scandinavian design capitalizes upon the beauty of simple materials, Scandinavian cuisine proves how a magnificent variety of flavorful and creative vegetable dishes can be created from a few reliable, readily available staples.
