More About Anja Hill
Anja Hill (nee Toivonen) was born in Helsinki in 1946 and was brought up largely on her parents' farm near Lahti in southern Finland. She is married to chef Shaun Hill and now lives in Worcester. They have three children and five grandchildren. For 10 years Anja shared the cooking with her husband at their Michelin-starred restaurant in Ludlow, The Merchant House. The first broadsheet review for the restaurant announced that the place was worth a detour for Anja's bread rolls alone. Prior to this Anja worked at at her and Shaun's first restaurant, Hill's in Stratford-upon-Avon, and at Gidleigh Park hotel.
Reviews - What do customers think about The Food & Cooking of Finland?
A beautiful book with delicious uncomplicated recipes Mar 30, 2008
If you enjoy Scandinavian or Eastern European foods, you will love this book. Every recipe is beautifully illustrated. I have made the beef and mushroom loaf, the potato casserole and the Finnish bagels. All were hits with four generations of my family and not at all complicated. They also looked great, just like the photographs in the book. I plan to make most of the recipes. They are all very appetizing. Even the fancier foods suitable for company are not too time consuming. The text at the beginning which introduces one to Finnish customs and food is also very interesting to read. You won't regret buying this book.
