In How To Hygge, renowned Scandinavian cook and writer Signe Johansen explores the culture of hygge, shares the secrets of Nordic living and shows you how to adopt these elements into your everyday life, wherever you are in the world.
Hygge is central to the Nordic sense of well-being. Roughly translated as 'cosiness', it implies warmth, conviviality and community. With fifty recipes and glorious imagery, Johansen explains how to enjoy the outdoors the Nordic way, the joy of fika (coming together over cake and coffee), how to collaborate to achieve a sense of community and why alcohol is integral to the healthy hedonism of hygge. For those who have long admired the region's stylish design heritage, she reveals how to achieve Scandi-Cool in your own home, without breaking the bank.
Explore the culture of hygge, and learn how to live your life to the fullest, Nordic-style.
