Farm Recipes and Food Secrets from the Norske Nook: The Midwests #1 Roadside Cafe by Helen Myhre, Mona Vold

Hearty, simple, plentiful meals made with wholesome ingredients have earned national acclaim for the Norske Nook in Osseo, Wisconsin. Now the restaurants founder, Helen Myhre, shares the recipes and philosophy behind her remarkable success. Plain and unassuming, this dynamo of a cafe is popular not only with local visitors but also with tourists and celebrities across the country. For years cars from everywhere have lined Osseos streets, but since Helen was featured on NBC News and appeared on Late Night with David Letterman to teach the host how to make a good pie, helicopters even land in the church parking lot bringing diners eager for honest home cooking and a glimpse of the real-life Queen of Pies. Now, at last, this entrepreneur, who never expected Id own a restaurant, has given us a compilation of her simple, reliable, time-honored recipes. More than a cookbook, this charming collection teaches such intangibles as the feel of a tender crust, the look of quality ingredients. In her no-nonsense, friendly, slightly sassy style -- a voice schooled in a lost era when farm women gathered in neighbors kitchens to cook for threshing crews or prepare a Ladies Aid supper in honor of harvest -- Helen delivers the soul of good, country cooking. Included are breads made with Old World knowledge -- from kneading to spanking; soups both hearty and light -- and dumplings, of course; delicious, mouth-watering meats and thick, old-fashioned gravies; farm lunches and suppers; snacks and after-school treats; and pies, puddings, pickles and jellies, cookies, fry cakes...and so much more, including a selection of Scandinavian specialties. And included here is her real recipe for the world-famous Sour Cream Raisin Pie that Helen even denied the New York Times.
