    Andreas Viestad: Kitchen of Light

    One of my favorite new chefs is Andreas Viestad, author of "Kitchen of Light". His new Scandinavian cooking style is so refreshing, contemporary, and practical!

    Another beautiful dish from "Kitchen of Light" by Andreas Viestad... this one's for Lennie! It's a wonderful potato salad with a light vinaigrette and lots of herbs. I personally have to have mint in this dish; but another herb may be one of your favorites (and the actual measurement as written is "a large handful" of chopped herbs; I'm estimating that it's about 2/3; use more or less as you wish). And, I usually omit capers in any dish; I just don't like the little things!

    Recipe #122872

    This was prepared on Andreas Viestad's cooking show, "New Scandinavian Cooking", and it's a bit different than you may expect of the cuisine... it's definitely more garlicky than I would have thought. And despite all the vodka, it's not boozy at all. In fact, I actually used aquavit in place of the vodka and it added even more interesting flavor. If you use a smaller roast, be sure to adjust the oven time accordingly; sirloin roast can go from perfect to too dry very quickly.

    Recipe #121686

    Another wonderful Andreas Viestad recipe, one of few for chicken. He adapted this one from a medieval Icelandic cookbook; the spices indicate that it probably was a dish for the wealthy. Amazingly, the amount of cinnamon is not overpowering here, and the dish is best with "skin-on" chicken. If you don't like chicken livers, substitute 1/2 chicken bouillon cube. Prep time includes a day of marinating (if you choose that option).

    Recipe #120648

    A very subtle and simple Swedish method for crawfish (or shrimp) by Andreas Viestad. It has a very distinct almost "caramelized" aroma. I saw this prepared on Andreas's cooking show; what you don't hear from this recipe is his recommendation to keep live crawfish in water in your bathtub overnight so they can be "cleaned out", if you know what I mean. I've prepared this with shrimp as well, and amazingly, they don't turn into hockey pucks after the 1 to 2 hour sitting time (and this time is reflected in the prep).

    Recipe #119122

    An Andreas Viestad recipe, one of my favorite chefs! This one is from his television cooking show, and has a deliciously different flavor. If you can't find fresh porcini mushrooms, the recipe does allow for a pound of white (button) mushrooms plus 2 ounces of dried porcinis. And don't skip the delicious garnish!

    Recipe #118043

    It’s often difficult to find aquavit here in the liquor stores of the United States. So if you have a hankering for that potent liquor, here’s a substitute for you. :) You can experiment with all sorts of flavors, not just caraway. Recipe adapted from "Kitchen of Light: New Scandinavian Cooking with Andreas Viestad" by Andres Viestad. Prep time includes infusion.

    Recipe #117582

    Courtesy of Andreas Viestad via the Pocatello newspaper. This apple dessert is a traditional dish both Norway and Denmark lay claim to, Viestad says. "How it got its name is easy to understand: It consists of layers of applesauce and sweet cinnamon-scented bread crumbs, veiled with whipped cream." Note: If your applesauce is very sweet, reduce the sugar for the bread crumbs.

    Recipe #116783

    From a recipe by Andreas Viestad, the effort and all the herbs are worth it. The result is a wonderful sauce that complements but doesn't overwhelm the fresh halibut taste. You can do the rub ahead of time (even the night before). You can also simplify and just use rosemary, parsley and bay leaves. Prep time does not include marinating time.

    Recipe #116062

    From Andreas Viestad, a lovely, slightly sweet, onion soup. Prep time includes cooking time because you do have to stir now and then while the onions saute.
