“New Nordic Meets Old Italian”, offers 45 gourmet vegan and gluten free pasta sauces with full color photos that are perfectly paired with dry pasta.

There are unexpected similarities between Italian cooking and the New Nordic style; both kitchens make a cult of freshness, the seasons and simplicity. Nordics always consider seasonal, local and sustainable food like Italians; purity, freshness, simplicity and ethics, are aimed at bringing out the pure original flavour. 

Scandinavian food is simple. When you work with the very best produce, there’s no need to over complicate it.We call it husmanskost – farmer’s fare. It’s natural and honest, made with the staple produce found on the land. 

Besides creative touches to the traditional recipes and some simple vegan cheese recipes to elevate your dishes, you will also find some gastronomic encounters between Italy and Sweden.

Author Nazlı Develi tried to convey more vividly by gourmet plates such as marinated beluga in glögg-Sweden’s festive beverage– a kind of mulled wine served with spaghetti and celeriac sauce. It is just fantastic with distinctly different levels of spicy sweetness of glögg with cherris and an earthy dish of celeriac. 

“New Nordic Meets Old Italian” also focuses on gourmet pasta sauces with unfamiliar edible plants that are prepared based on Italian cooking traditions, perfectly paired with dried pasta shapes. The aim of this book is to encourage chefs to create a delicious plant based pasta menu in using 100% plants in the kitchen.
