"Husmor og Mad" is Danish for "Housewife and Food". It is an outstanding cookbook for traditional Danish dishes including fish frikadeller and old-fashioned apple cake. It has reproducible recipes and the art work lies in the actual photos of the ingredients and results, that no food stylist ever touched, but are the outcome of Jon Nordstrøm's signature move of shooting motionless objects.

But this book answers several questions at a time. Not only is it a practical guide to becoming better at making real and unadorned Danish food, as grandmothers did it, it also offers a glimpse of what happened between grandma and grandpa, when the food was eaten, the dishes taken and the kids put to bed ..

Even if you think this is off-topic, we can only encourage you to recognize the award-winning design of the book and the fondly selected materials. "Husmor og Mad" received the Gold Award of the Creative Circle in 2014 and was shortlisted for the Best Book Work of the Year 2013 by the Danish Association of Book Craft.
