How to Hygge
Signe Johansen

'Uplifting, heart-warming, life-enriching. I wish I could have read this book years ago' - Nigel Slater 

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.

Signe Johansen is a London-dwelling Norwegian cook and author of Scandilicious and Scandilicious Baking. She's a food journalist and whiskey connoisseur, and part of the #SpiritedWomen campaign to get more women into whiskey. You can find her on @SigneSJohansen.
