Fika and hygge are two Scandinavian words gaining more and more popularity – and we understand why. The Swedish concept of fika (fee-kah) means taking a little break from the daily grind to sit down, connect with someone and perhaps have a cup of coffee and something sweet. Hygge is a Norwegian word embraced by the Danes, and the concept of Hygge is usually associated with the latter – in Norway it is often called ‘kos’. Hygge, in essence, is a feeling of safety and contentness. Candles, your favourite people, a cup of tea or coffee or a piece of homemade cake can all enhance the feeling. This book is a collection of recipes from across Scandinavia, all beautifully illustrated and divided into chapters – Biscuits and Cookes, Tray and No Bakes, Everyday Fika, Little Fancy Cakes, Celebration Cakes and Bread and Batters. Something for every baker, and every occasion.
