Lefse Lovers Are In For A Treat!

I picked up this book at my Grandparent's home recently and fell in love with it! Rolled lefse with butter and sugar is a treat that brings on nostalgic memories of childhood - yet while I loved the food, I had no idea how to make it or how it came into being. "The Last Word on Lefse" compiles everything from the history of this Scandinavian food, to funny antedotes from Norweigan-Americans who excel at making the stuff, to corny jokes and songs and, of course, a number of recipies that I am looking forward to trying. I have yet to boil and rice the potatoes for my first batch of lefse, but after reading this book, I can't wait to get cooking and recapture some of my Nordic heritage.

Little lefse book goes a long way...

The Last Word on Lefse is a delightful book that captures an abiding and lasting love of lefse. The book is written with the same casual, familial voice that the people of the Midwest themselves reflect, and the memories and thoughts of several esteemed Iowa and Minnesota lefse-makers are respectfully, if bemusedly, chronicled. I enjoyed the subdued charm and humor of the book, and I was tickled by the lyrics to songs that I had heard as a child at the Nordic Fest in Decorah. The half-dozen or so recipes for lefse were also a welcome addition to this basically pleasing book.
