Scandinavian Comfort FoodEmbracing the Art of Hygge


Celebrate the laidback comfort of Scandinavian home cooking and welcome inthe 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 centres on how to have a relaxed, homely time with friends and family in over 130 recipes. Think enjoying a long summer evening over a selection of fresh homemade treats, or hot chocolate served at intimate family get-togethers. 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.

Trine Hahnemann is a Danish chef and food writer known for her great passion for Danish food culture. Trine appears widely in the media including Saturday Kitchen and Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour and has written for publications such as the Observer, the Guardian and House & Garden. Trine has written ten cookbooks in her native Danish and four in English: The Scandinavian Cookbook, Scandinavian Christmas, Eat Nordic and Scandinavian Baking, all published by Quadrille.
