For years this Danish chef Mikkel Karstad has been teaching his own four kids the joys of simple, eco-conscious cooking. Working at the famed NOMA restaurant Karstad helped put Northern European gastronomy on the map. But Karstad is happiest when he is cooking with his family, either at home or on their frequent foraging trips. In this beautiful cookbook he shares his genius for taking simple ingredients and combining them in exciting ways that every family member will enjoy.
Divided into ten chapters, the book offers 73 recipes for breakfasts, lunches, dinners, and gatherings in the woods, garden, and beach. There are dishes that anyone, including kids, can prepare and serve —quick breads, sandwiches, cakes, spreads and jams —as well as more advanced projects that will hone young people’s culinary skills. Karstad takes you to the beach to roast marshmallows with strawberries; to the woods to grill flatbread with mushrooms; and to the garden, where fresh herbs enhance everyday dishes such as pancakes and baked potatoes. Loaded with fruit, vegetables, whole grains and herbs, these meals are largely meat-free, and will help your family adapt to a cleaner way of eating that is both satisfying and delicious. Illustrated with Anders Schønnemann’s stunning photography.
