It was sort of torture to read this at the beginning of summer, but that's when I received it. It's been nominated for design awards and no wonder. Along with lovely photos, there are charming on-topic quotes and poems sprinkled throughout (although sometimes easy to miss in their subtle grey italics). I haven't actually tested any of these recipes yet, but intend to work my way through at least half of them come fall. I also now really want to visit Northern Europe. Also in the winter.

Loved the title and the idea of a winter food book so I picked it up off the re-shelving cart at the library, sitting handily next to the check out kiosks.... Wish it was way more inspiring. Not bad...some stuff I'd try but, nothing that made me say, "Oooooo!" Just kind of meh. It has a super great title and full color photographs for many of the recipes which usually makes a cookbook for me. OH well. Once upon a time I think I would excused it as winter's fault...well, hey....what can you do to ...more
I adore this book, I always enjoy browsing it's pages in the depth of winter when I need nourishment ! It gives me flavour and colour . Using two recipes tonight 'Austrian beef ' and vodka spiced plums for burns supper with friends
Sure, the food sounds good. Sour cream apple pie muffins? Sign me up. However, Henry's overuse of cream seemed one-noted. There's other ways to make hearty winter fare without relying on cream.
I love this book and use the recipes often in the depth of winter when I need flavour and colour using good quality winter ingredients

The wintry companion to Pickled Lemons, Crazy Water. The disappointing opening chapter on dishes based largely on cheese aside, this makes me yearn for cold, for Northern and Eastern Europe, for Scandinavia and for Russia, and for sweet coffee and pastries in cozy cafes in Poland; for thick comforting dishes with pork and winter fruits, and for all those flavour combinations you find in those countries, that go against the grain, just for these dark few months, of everything sunny and Mediterran ...more
I might try the Celeriac & Potato Mash, Roast Winter Squash Salad with Lentils & Goat Cheese, and Danish Christmas Rice Pudding with Berry Compote.

Susan, I can send you the celeriac recipe if you're still looking!
Eh, this was a bit disappointing. Gorgeous photography and interesting-sounding recipes (even though I don't eat meat), but the one I made didn't leave me really want to make more. Sent back to the library.
a comforting, gorgeous winter read. she renewed my interest in root vegetables, just as it was flagging. the photography is great and so is the writing. this is one i want to own.
Excellent selection of literary quotes. Beautiful photographs. Recipes reflect author's fondness for cheese. I want to try Hungarian lecso (tomato, peppers, onion)

I've cooked my way through this book and have the gummed-together pages to prove it. Love it.
Lovely idea and writing. The recipes were not quite my style.
