Andreas Viestad is a home cook and food writer, originally from Norway. In addition to a number of cookbooks, he has written a weekly column for the magazine section of the Norwegian newspaper Dagbladet and is a food writer for the Washington Post, where he has a monthly column about the science of everyday cooking.
Andreas has been the host of three seasons of New Scandinavian Cooking and is co-host of Perfect Day. He is now in the process of shooting the second season of Perfect Day. His first English language cookbook Kitchen of Light – The New Scandinavian Cooking got rave reviews and is now out in paperback. His second book Where Flavor Was Born follows the spice route around the Indian Ocean, and was a 2008 winner of Gourmand World Cookbook Awards.
Andreas’ passion for food is not about making the “right” kind of food, or fancy food, rather about nurturing family and friends – and finding out more about the world we live in.
