Scandinavian Comfort Food: Embracing the Art of Hygge by Trine Hahnemann
Trine Hahnemann, Danish chef and food writer, shares her most comforting meals.
The goal: to put some hygge into your life. Hygge is loosely defined as “the atmosphere created by hanging out.” Primarily, Hahnemann says, “The home creates the first frame for hygge – a dining table is important for lingering over dinner. A hyggelig home is a home that feels lived in; a home that reflects who you are and tells your story.” It can be felt at home, in a café, at a formal dinner, or alone with a book and some tea.
And this is the core of Scandinavian Comfort Food: making the best of every day. These recipes for winter stew, meatballs, and quince preserves are a small sample of the many, hygge-inducing dishes from Hahnemann’s kitchen.
