Unusual Recipes
I owned a copy of this cookbook years ago; I gave it to a friend of mine whose father's family were from Finland. Over the years, I intended always to obtain another copy of the book. Now, I have done so and look forward to re-acquainting myself with some of the very unusual (to my American experience) recipes contained within. Just in time for my Christmas Eve buffet!

Happy to find Finnish Recipe book for American cooks
I've just begun looking through the recipes and I'm anxious to try some rye bread. (That's as far as I have read so far.) I like the history that is also included in the book. My background is Finnish on my father's side and Swed-Finnish on my mother's.
ProsI like the fact that these recipes have been adjusted for modern kitchens and American measurements.
ConsHaven't found any yet.

Re Finnish English Cook Book
I am very happy with the Finnish cook book as it has all the old recepes that Mum made but i had not learned how much of the ingredients were used in them.

Also the History of our language , which is something i did not know, so all in all a very informative book.

Thank you

Made My Day
I was an exchange student to Finland in the mid 70's and have been trying to find the recipe for rhubarb crisp since I got back. It's a good thing I was home alone when the book arrived since I gave a squeal of delight and did a happy dance at finding the recipe. And as an added bonus there's a lot of other recipes I remembered.
ProsThe "old" Finnish recipes in U.S. measurements.

A treasure
Excellent recipes with simple, fresh tastes and pleasing visual results. Lots of variety and uses easy-to-find ingredients. Beatrice Ojakangas' introduction of Finnish home traditions reminds me of my pride in my heritage. I will use this regularly.

Best English Finnish cookbook
I have been using this cookbook for over 40 yrs. My sister and daughter also have it. Both my sister and I have Finnish husbands. We love cooking and baking all the Finnish recipes. Even Finnish friends now use recipes from this cookbook since I told them about the cookbook. I haven't made anything that I don't like. What I like it has both the English and finnish names for each recipe.
ProsEasy to read and follow.

finnish cookbook
I first bought Beatrice Ojakangas cookbook in Finlad in the 70's - it was designed for US audience but I could still work around it. Now it is all spotty and stained but I just woudn't get rid of this book for anything. If you are wanting to explore Finnish cooking this book is certainly the best I have found. Also Sue Lawrence from Scotland has a brilliant fishpie recipe modified from Finnish recipe.
Prosgreat book, well worth it.
Consthe old copy we have is really designed for US audience so there are some measurements unclear for Australians

Cook book
It is a wedding present for my sister and brother-in-law. I was excited to get her a Finnish cookbook since we are half Finnish and it was also on her shower/wedding registry.
ProsNot sure since it is a gift for my sister. I haven't looked at it yet. I feel good about buying it though because my mom said that it is a good cookbook since she has two of them for some reason. I guess that I'll get the other one someday from mom.
