wanted to give it a 3 but...
Lacking substance. There's so much to work with here (beautiful scenery, interesting history, varied food, etc), but it's not shown as a smooth show (choppy). And the host is so awkward (weird stories, sometimes out of place or go too deep down the rabbit hole)... also you don't need to draw on a real pig to show me the different types of cuts. Anyway, just an odd man with an awkward hosting style. BTW "Canapés are for women and diplomats".... the hell? (not sure if he was trying to make a joke or what, but bizarre comment on so many levels). (side note - Canapé, French word: type of hors d'œuvre... aka Amuse-bouche, aka tapas, aka antipasto). Food is food. Just go out and try new things, go enjoy (live a little folks).

Wonderful, Educational, a Joy to Watch!
Part travel show and part cooking show, my whole family loves to watch New Scan Cooking! The shows hosts are delightful, and I've learned so much about Scandinavia. FYI this is a wholesome, family friendly show, and episodes are short but packed full of good stuff. Wish Amazon would load more!

Great show, show and recipes grounded in Nordic traditions and foods with a Scandinavian flavor.
All around enjoyable with very doable simple recipes with a touch of background information on the how and why. Host was additionally entertaining in his own way with a very relaxed a clear manner of speaking that lent itself well to the reality of this cooking show. I have a feeling that English was not his first language.
And as far as the negatives on this show, its a shame that people are so easily put off.

This is a totally relaxing and beautiful cooking show
There's something really special about New Scandinavian Cooking. It's part cooking show and part travel show. Andreas and Tina are great hosts. They are both very enthusiastic about their Scandinavian culture, and with sharing the unique food and landscapes. When I've watched a half hour program I feel like I've spent time abroad.

Interesting Window into Scandinavian Cuisine, but Dated Views on Men/Women
"Canapes aren't really for men [...] but for women and diplomats."

Modernize your views on what men and women should be/want! Canapes are delightful and suitable for EVERYONE!
