Regardless of your interest in cooking cod, let alone seal
intestines, this is the must-buy book of the season. It's a hefty
volume packed with history and carefully observed detail, all
delivered with Fäviken chef Magnus Nilsson's quiet charisma.
Rigorous, but also sane, humane and frequently brilliant. Must
cook: a proper Jansson's temptation. (Phaidon, $59.95)
