Synopsis: A unique new work on Norwegian foods, holiday customs, recipes, and the "Norwegian-American Experience." The largest number of traditional Norwegian holiday recipes--cakes, cookies, breads-ever put together in one book, and interwoven with fascinating bits of Norwegian social history, including explanations of Norwegian Holiday traditions and customs, many of them kept alive to this day by millions of Norwegian-American families. Authentic manuscript recipes for over 125 holiday cookies, cakes, breads, toppings, and puddings are interwoven with fascinating bits of Norwegian and Newport, Rhode Island social history. Poignant recollections and photographs chronicle life in Newport-all was not "Bellevue Avenue high life." Lavishly illustrated, it offers over 300 photographs showcased by its 8 1/2 x 11 inch format illustrating life from Norway-to-Newport, R.I.--then and now--from period portraits and views of the late 19th and early 20th century, including antique post cards, to the present day. Unpublished photographs selected from private collections (including an autographed picture of Roald Amundsen, who discovered the South Pole), antique post cards, and contemporary Norwegian scenes.
From the Publisher: Flavors of the Fjords "may be the most detailed history of a Norwegian-American family yet published," noted the Royal Norwegian Embassy. "Flavors of the Fjords, the Norwegian Holiday Cookbook," is a most unusual oversize book, reported the Newport, RI Daily News. "The 317-page, well-indexed book, contains scores of photographs taken in Norway and the Newport area dating back to the last century.It would make a perfect Christmas gift." the Daily News concluded. Flavors of the Fjords received a warm reception from the Norwegian press. "A Beautiful Book About A Family Of Emigrants," reported Sunndal (Tidenskrev). "Quite a sensational thing happened in Sunndal Wednesday. Descendants from the Fladvad family, who immigrated to American in the last century, have published a book with old, highly treasured recipes, which one of the women brought along on the long trip across the Atlantic, and the history of daily life among a Norwegian American family. Aura Avis headlined: "Family History from Sunndal Became Beautiful Book in USA." "Flavors of the Fjords is the name of a unique and beautiful book newly published in the United States. As the title indicates, it is among other things a cookbook with a taste of the fjords, but it is even more so a family history, where Flatvad in the Sunndal is the center of interest."
