‘New Nordic’ Danish Yule with Trina Hahnemann

Trina Hannemann

Trina Hahnemann is surfing the crest of our current Nordic food obsession with her wonderful books, The Scandinavian Cookbook and The Nordic Diet. I recently had the pleasure of meeting her, and she is even more inspring in real life than in print. Yesterday, she prepared a New Nordic Danish Yule feast at the Danish Embassy.

The recipes are all new (Trina seems endlessly creative) and really, were all wonderful. Bright, fresh, clear flavours and contrasting textures my favourites were a beautiful and very wintry warm apple drink, bacon and apple sauce with bacon croutons (seriously fabulous and comforting – a Danish traditional dish too) and “Rimsalted” cod served on baked celeriac.

I highly recommend her gorgeous book, it’s one of my recent favourites – The Scandinavian Cookbook – out now in paperback at £14.99 (or just over £9 on Amazon). Organised by month, every recipe is interesting, and most ingredients are easily accessible. A great Christmas gift, but do get one for yourself too.

I like food. I like to make food. Eat food. Photograph food. Write about food. Mainly in London but when I am lucky or organised further afield.

  1. I did the cheese tart from The Scandinavian Kitchen when I wrote my review post and it was delicious. It was one of the posts I most enjoyed writing too!

  2. Super stuff. Would love to meet Trina. I am writing a post about her Nordic Diet book at the moment as it happens. Does she have any plans for any more books?

    • Hi Jonathan. She is lovely. I must get my paws on a copy of The Nordic Diet. Am now going to run and look at your post! :)

  3. Wow. Wonderful photography. I love this kind of food. My Grandma was from Norway and stepmom from Denmark so this kind of stuff was regularly on our dinner tables. Very lucky to have met such an inspirational person!

  4. Ahhhh, sad to miss this event at the Danish Embassy! Trina’s cooking is fantastic, so much flavour and she’s endlessly creative as you say. Good intro to our forthcoming trip to Denmark in 2011 :)
