This kind of coziness comes with spending quality time in hearth and home when the days are short. Scandinavians even have a word for it—hygge. Trine Hahnemann is the doyenne of Scandinavian cooking and loves nothing more than spending time in her kitchen cooking up comforting food in good company. This collection of her recipes will warm you up and teach you to embrace the art of hygge, no matter where you live. Hardcover.
