New Scandinavian Cooking

A show on KLRN that showcases the beautiful land of Scandinavia as well as the cuisine of Sweden, Finland, Norway, Iceland, Greenland, and Denmark.

Each show features a different area such as the mountainous regions of Norway to the southern coastal lands of Finland. The regions have their own cuisine and the host really focuses on the history and why the food is popular where it is. For example, rye grain is heartier than wheat and actually become a staple out of necessity in order to brave the tough years where wheat would not survive.

The meals they make during each show is not cooked in a kitchen but rather the outdoors. They have a mobile cooking setup where you see the beautiful scenery while getting to know Scandinavian cuisine.
