I went to the Lofoten Islands above the Arctic Circle in Norway. This is one of the world’s great fisheries. I caught cod and learned about the industry that is the foundation of lutefisk.

I returned to the States and ate lutefisk across the country—and lived to tell about it! Along the way, I gathered the most comprehensive collection of facts, fiction, and folklore surrounding this simple fish with the unforgettable scent. The Last Word on Lutefisk: True Tales of Cod and Tradition is a historical account of this colorful lutefisk tradition mixed with homespun tales, humor, tours, poetry, lyrics—even lutefisk cheers!

In The Last Word on Lutefisk, you will find:

  • Old country travel and lutefisk lore
  • Tales of Norse fishermen—and great color photographs
  • Why lye is used in soaking the fish
  • Secrets of making your own superior lutefisk (really!)
  • Why lutefisk does not build character—it reveals it
  • A directory of the finest lutefisk dinners in North America

A taste of both culture and culinary traditions, The Last Word on Lutefisk invites you to partake in this peculiar, exuberant Scandinavian feast.
