New Scandinavian Cooking

"New Scandinavian Cooking" is a culinary show that isn't filmed in a kitchen or TV studio, which is common with most shows of the genre.

In each episode, Viestad prepares recipes featuring locally sourced ingredients, ranging from berries and mushrooms to cod and mussels.
