sock“Hygge (pronounced ‘hue-ga’) is a Danish word that describes the feeling of being cosy, comfortable and at peace with the world.

The Art of Hygge is packed with delicious recipes to share with friends, craft ideas for decorating your home, and inspirational suggestions for enjoying the magic of everyday pleasures.

fika“Fika is a Swedish word meaning to meet up for a cup of coffee or tea over something delicious. It is also the word for the delicious treats themselves. Swedes traditionally stop twice a day for fika: taking a much-needed break from the daily grind. People fika with family, colleagues, friends, children and even go on fika dates. This new book from Bront Aurell features over 60 recipes for cakes, bakes and treats from all over Scandinavia… from indulgent cream confections to homely and comforting fruit cakes and traditional breads, sweet buns and pastries.” Reserve a copy.

Explore the culture of hygge, and learn how to live your life to the fullest, Nordic-style.!” Reserve a copy.

 

hyg“Hygge is a word that has been sifted to the surface in recent years but it’s not a new concept. The Danes have enjoyed hygge for hundreds of years. They are measured as one of the happiest nations in the world. But at the heart of Danish life is a quality that is less easy to quantify – contentment. In Denmark, hygge is a significant presence in the backdrop of everyday life – something habitual and ritualistic. Hygge is a quality of presence, a feeling of togetherness, an experience of shelter and wellbeing. It’s a practical, easy antidote to consumerism, a way of belonging to the moment and to each other…” Reserve a copy.
