Trine Hahnemann, Danish chef and food journalist, is the Delia Smith of Denmark. She appears regularly on television as a guest chef on different programmes in Denmark, and is the author of several cookery books in her native language. For four years she wrote for Denmark’s leading women’s magazine, Alt For Damerne. Trine has founded the company Hahnemann’s Køkken (Kitchen), which runs the restaurant and cafe in the Folketing, Denmark’s House of Parliament, as well as several large company restaurants.
In 2008 THE SCANDINAVIAN COOKBOOK, with photographs by Lars Ranek, one of Scandinavia’s leading food photographers, was published by Quadrille. Andrews McMeel published it in the United States the following year and it was also published in Holland (Fontain Uitgevers), Germany (Christian Verlag), Norway (Versal Forlag), Canada (Indigo) and Denmark (L & R Fakta).
At the start of 2010, Quadrille published Trine’s second book, THE NORDIC DIET, described by the Guardian as ‘groundbreaking’ with ‘diverse and delicious recipes’ which used light and healthy Scandanavian food to provide meal plans for gradual weight loss.
SCANDINAVIAN CHRISTMAS, was published by Quadrille in September 2012 and SCANDINAVIAN BAKING followed in September 2014. In October 2016 Quadrille published SCANDINAVIAN COMFORT FOOD which will be followed by OPEN SANDWICHES in March of this year.
