Swedish chef Marcus Samuelsson fondly remembers baking these cookies with his grandmother. And at his New York restaurant Aquavit, the deliciously chewy, spicy treats have been handed out as Christmas gifts. Adapted from Mom's Secret Recipe File, edited by Chris Styler. Recipe found in the Toronto Star web site.

Recipe #425726

Callaloo is the national dish of my country. This is a chef's version of this dish as featured in Oprah's magazine. It is nothing like the traditional Trinidadian soup which utilizes the leaves of the dasheen(taro) plant. This is actually a Spinach soup as most of the ingredients are different. This doeasn't appeal to my tastes and I don't have any intention of making it but others may enjoy it.

Recipe #199536

Healthy salad from Marcus Samuelsson of Aquavit. You can use a coffee grinder and grind pistachios to make the pistachio flour. Pairs nicely with a dry Sauvignon Blanc

Recipe #170107

Delicious Tårta from Aquavit: and the New Scandinavian Cuisine by Marcus Samuelsson, probably the most famous Scandinavian Chef in the United States.

Recipe #136331

Prunes really go well with pork and this recipe has them inside the pork and in the sauce. The pork takes on a delicious sweet flavor from the prunes. This recipe is from Chef Marcus Samuelsson of Aquavit. Samuelsson pairs this dish with red cabbage and roasted potatoes and serves with lingonberry preserves or fresh cranberry relish. Variations: For a richer sauce use a good quality fresh or frozen veal stock.

Recipe #136333

Scandinavian salmon dish that is served in a beautiful edible package from Marcus Samuelsson of Aquavit. This is perfect for dinner or even a special occasion. Wine Suggestion: Riesling or Gewurztraminer

Recipe #136748

This recipe comes from the Aquavit cookbook that I borrowed from the library. I planned to make these soon, but when a request came for spicy fries, I immediately thought of this recipe and decided to go ahead and post it in response to the request. You can adjust the seasoning to suit your taste. Please note that this recipe requires a one hour freeze time between fries. It should be started well ahead of the rest of the meal, and finished just before serving.

Recipe #85450

According to Marcus Samuelsson, this is traditionally made in Sweden in June when the wild strawberries (which heretofore I only associated with Ingmar Bergman) are available. But Marcus says it's delicious with cultivated strawberries, or you can substitute other berries or a combination thereof. Cooking time includes three hours of cooling/chilling time.

Recipe #135071

Another Aquavit recipe, this vinegar/pickling solution is truly delicious. According to Marcus Samuellson, it can be used on anything from berries to herring. I used it to make his pickled beets and loved it. It's easy to make and just needs to to marinate for at least six hours. It will keep in the fridge indefinitely.

Recipe #122894

This is Marcus Samuellson's recipe for the traditional Swedish condiment. It calls for his Swedish 1-2-3 Vinegar, the recipe for which is posted. The beets should sit in the refrigerator for at least two days before you serve them, but they will keep in the refrigerator for up to a month. (So he says--mine disappeared the day they were served.)

Recipe #122898

According to Marcus Samuelsson, this is a very traditional Swedish salad and a classic accompaniment to Swedish meatballs. I made it, using his pickled beet recipe (posted here), but you could certainly substitute your own favorite. It's very easy to put together and should be served warm or at room temperature, so if you make it ahead, make sure to let it 'unchill' before serving. I have made it with real mayo and sour cream and with lite mayo and fat-free sour cream--you can hardly tell the difference and the latter saves a lot of fat and calories.

Our family favorite Rotkohl dish, in the traditional German style (with a few flourishes)! Delicious!! Red cabbage, apples, aromatic spices and wine---this dish is sure to please! Wonderful served with holiday roast turkey, beef, or ham dishes -or- with bratwurst, weisswurst or wienerwurst sausages. Tip: For a delicious & traditional European feast serve the Rotkohl with German Meatballs recipe #106298, Beef Rouladen recipe #344842, Bavarian Sauerbraten recipe #409947, Wiener Schnitzel recipe #459188, or Swedish Meatballs, along with boiled new potatoes or buttered spaetzle noodles sprinkled with fresh snipped parsley. A great make-ahead dish that freezes & reheats beautifully, and actually tastes best after flavors have had a chance to marry (a day or two after cooking). I like to make two batches at a time, one for now and one to freeze for future meals. I hope you enjoy as much as we do. As my mother made it, with adaptations from the book "Aquavit and the New Scandinavian Cuisine" by James Beard Award-Winning Chef Marcus Samuelsson.

Recipe #108449

According to Marcus Samuelsson, this is the most popular Swedish condiment, after Lingonberry preserves, of course. They are an accompaniment to Swedish meatballs, other dishes, even served with hot dogs by street vendors. Cooking time is marinating time.

Recipe #118358

This is Marcus Samuelsson's rendition of the perennial favorite. The sauce is wonderful, unctuous. They should be served with garlicky mashed potatoes, quick pickled cucumbers and extra lingonberry preserves. The pickled cucumbers (and their juice) are really easy to make and the recipe is posted. If you can't find lingonberry preserves (a pity) you can substitute whole cranberry relish.

Recipe #118360

This recipe is from Marcus Samuelsson, the Ethiopian born, Swedish raised chef of Aquavit in Manhattan. He learned it from the chef at Meskerem, a wonderful Ethiopian restaurant in New York. It should be eaten with Injera, the Ethiopian flat bread which is soft and slightly sour and adds a wonderful touch to the dish. Pita bread or soft tortillas are the right texture, but the flavor isn't there. If there's an Ethiopian restaurant nearby, you may be able to buy some. If you can get Tef (the fermented grain that gives Injera its special taste), you can make your own. There's a recipe posted. Add one to two hours of refrigeration time to the cooking time. You'll have some of the clarified seasoned butter left over, but you'll find a use for it, I promise.

Recipe #118132

This is the Way Marcus Samuelsson does venison chops at Aquavit. You can substitute veal chops if you must. I've used farm-raised venison, but it would probably be even better with wild. The berry chutney can be made with any combination of berries and you can double or triple it so that you'll have this lovely chutney for other uses. The chop with the chutney is very rich, so a simple side like garlic mashed potatoes is perfect. The cooking time does not include the 24 hours of marination of the meat.

Recipe #118135

From Marcus Samuelsson of Aquavit, who says it was what his Swedish Grandmother made on Sunday nights. My change is to add some additional liquid to the pan so that you have enough to make sauce to pour sparingly over the chicken and rice.
