Celebrate the laid back comfort of Scandinavian home cooking and welcome in the world of hygge with the doyenne of Scandinavian cooking Trine Hahnemann. Scandinavian Comfort Food is Trine’s love letter to her native Denmark, the attitude to life known as hygge, and why cooking fresh, homemade and nourishing food is so important. The book centers on how to have a relaxed, homely time with friends and family in over 130 recipes. With hygge, Trine shares an important part of her culture that is good for the soul, teaching us how to be kind to ourselves and find contentment. Scandinavian Comfort Food is full of fresh, seasonal ingredients to create a balance of indulgent and wholesome recipes – from barbecued langoustines and meringue layer cake, to radicchio with blueberries and sweet rye rolls.
