New book about Halland out
There’s a new Roxette track out there. This time it’s not played by Roxette, but by Ginestrakvartetten (The Ginestra Quartet) and it’s a beautiful seven and a half minute long medley of “Vulnerable”, “It Must Have Been Love”, “Dressed for Success” and “The Look”. Ginestrakvartetten is a classical quartet so the medley is therefore performed gracefully with classical instruments.
This track is from an album that is a bonus CD to the book “Smak av Halland” (“A Taste of Halland”), a cookbook and more about Halland, the county that Halmstad is the capital of.
“Smak av Halland” is written by Tomas Tengby and Stefan Holmström, while the photographs are taken by Bruno Ehrs and Lasse Åkerström.
ICA, the publishing company, describes the book like this: “Book idea: A cookbook with the raw material of Halland as a basis. Additionally what’s unique for Halland is presented in the text and the photos. Some history, health, food, music and nature.”
Examples of recipes featured in the book:
Small potato pancakes
Potatoes au gratin spiced with blue cheese
Fillet of beef in a string
Salad from Ugglarp with horseradish dressing
All in all there are about 50 recipes and 60 color photos in the book. ISBN: 91-534-2636-3
