I've always loved cookbooks. Though I gotta tell you—times have changed. Used to be, cookbooks had some heft to them, some real texture. These days, it’s all diet shit and TVFN on the Amazon top 50.

(Note: Part 1 of Andrew Carmellini's vacation account can be found here ; part 2, here ; and part 3, here.) Most of our meals in Scandinavia were from markets or in outdoor restaurants. For example, we ate fresh shrimp , right off the boats, served with mayonnaise and washed down with very cold local beer at a picnic table on the porch of a very small local restaurant on a tiny island outside of Oslo.
