Pre-Release Special: Home Baked

On a small island off the coast of Denmark, Hanne Risgaard and her family grow organic grains — wheat, spelt, rye — stone-grind them, and bake beautiful breads, pies, cookies, and more. The farm is called Skaertoft Molle (translation: Cut-Road Mill), and the family has won awards for their healthful and delicious grains.

Now you too can create wonderful breads from the simple recipes in Risgaard’s book, Home Baked: Nordic Recipes and Techniques for Organic Bread and Pastry. The book is on sale this week for 25% off.

Nordic cuisine is growing in popularity, perhaps owing to its focus on fresh and wild flavors. Home Baked follows from this tradition, incorporating unexpected flavors into easy and healthy bread recipes, such as “green knots” that use fresh nettles, and fragrant bread made with lavender buds.

Including a step-by-step guide to kneading dough, and full color photographs of the farm and each recipe, Home Baked is a must-have for bakers and bread-lovers everywhere.

Richard Bertinet, author of Dough: Simple Contemporary Breads agrees:

“Hanne Risgaard’s connection to and understanding of the grains grown and milled on her land at Skaertoft shines through in this beautiful collection of Nordic recipes, drawn from the rich baking heritage of northern Europe. Home Baked is atmospheric and appealing!”
