I preordered Scandinavian from Scratch many months ago, eagerly anticipating the likes of laskiaispulla/semla/vēja kūkas. I was delighted to discover her variation involves lemon curd.

Lemon curd is one of my favourite toppings, I usually make it using only yolks and a little more lemon than usual. Divine folded through whipped cream!

I'm really looking forward to making laskiaispulla using Scandinavian from Scratch for our Christmas table, trying her laminated dough (a new method for me), and other new recipes. It's really well written and engaging. Thankyou for recommending it :)

David, we made your Chicken Lady Chicken (using Cornish hens) and leeks vinaigrette from My Paris Kitchen for Thanksgiving, and it was the best Thanksgiving meal we've ever had! We'd made both separately many times, but together they made for a divine meal. One time, while roasting CLC, a neighbor rang our doorbell to ask what we were cooking because it smelled so good!

Too bad I’m so far away... but then I’m off chocolate at the moment... but like Arnie “I’ll be back!!”

"Scandinavian from Scratch" is superb! Swedish-Danish-Finnish-Norwegian recipes are centuries old, filling the hearts and souls of generations! Deliciousness. Bellissimo!

Hi David, Thanks for the tip about the chocolatier. I see she is located in Saint-Laurent-du-Pont. We spent a night there many years ago after we visited the Caves de la Chartreuse. I adore Chartreuse and chocolate! Sounds like a wonderful combination!

Can I renew at that rate?

Actually, 30% off comes to $3.50/month or $35.00/year and not $4/month or $40/year as displayed in your email. Check with your "accountant."
