Tasting Hygge..Joyful Recipes For Cozy Days and Nights by Leela Cyd

Hygge (pronounced hoo-gah) is a Danish term with no exact translation into English.

The most delicious approach to hygge—50 recipes to satisfy and savor, from Almond Custard Pancakes to Greens with Parmesan and Nutmeg

Good food makes everyone feel warm and cared for, which is the very essence of hygge. This Danish way of life has been embraced by Americans who want that same sense of cozy. In Tasting Hygge, acclaimed food photographer and cookbook author Leela Cyd shares the recipes that make her happy, for cultivating moments of connection in the dining room, at the coffee table, or over a little bedside tray. Keeping in mind the idea of slowing down and enjoying the moment, Cyd shares more than 50 recipes that elevate everyday meals into very special moments. She organizes the book into five sensory experiences (Calm, Bright, Warm, Spiced, and Smooth) with recipes.

This charming little book is full of wonderful, warm, and really good recipes! From mixing your own teas to Swedish Semlor with Almonds and Cream, my personal favorite. I could exist on these alone.

The Almond Sourdough pancakes are heavenly and the Pistachio milk is different for me. But it looks divine! Give it a look and find out about Hygge!

And now I’m off to read the new Sara Blaedel book The Undertaker’s Daughter. A Danish author of really great books!

    You had me at Hygge 🙂 I didn’t know about this book, I’ll look it up, thanks for sharing 🙂

    If Risalamande and/or Æbleskiver recipes are in this book, I recommend trying them… my favorite hygge Danish treats so far 🙂
