The Hygge Life: Embracing the Nordic Art of Coziness Through Recipes, Entertaining, Decorating, Simple Rituals, and Family Traditions
Gunnar Karl Gíslason, Jody Eddy
Equal parts cookbook and lifestyle guide, this cozy little book shows you how to cultivate comfort and contentment and embrace life’s small pleasures with the Danish practice of hygge.
A food and lifestyle book dedicated to the Scandinavian concept of hygge (loosely translated as "coziness"); how to create it for yourself and others, and how to incorporate it into holidays, travel, decor, entertaining, and everyday life, with approximately 30 recipes. Hygge is centered around the idea of feeling snug and inviting comforting elements into day-to-day life while creating warmth, community, and intimacy. A bakery is hygge. Bikes are more hygge than cars. Cozy shows readers how small gestures (putting wool blankets and warm cider out for guests) or larger undertakings (building bonfires and making campfire bread to celebrate solstice) can warm the psyche and foster hygge. The book is divided into chapters focused on different opportunities for hygge; morning rituals, family gatherings, holidays, bedtime rituals, decorating, and caring for yourself, with more than 30 recipes for cozy and comforting food and drink plus stunning photography throughout.
