Why are Scandinavians the happiest people on Earth? What are lagom and hygge and how can you get more of them in your life? New book Nørth: How to Live Scandinavian explains it all.
Written by Brontë Aurell, Danish owner of London's ScandiKitchen café and shop, Nørth is essentially a (little tongue-in-cheek) guidebook to Scandinavian history, culture, food, design, language, fashion, sport, customs, dating, family life, superstitions and more. Know more about Norse mythology, rank your favourite famous viking and even learn how to pay your taxes with a smile.
Of course, there's plenty on the food and drink of Sweden, Norway and Denmark, with recipes, how-tos and advice on how to prepare open sandwiches, drink aquavit and use the right spices to make Christmas ultra-cosy.
Out on September 7th 2017, Nørth: How to Live Scandinavian by Brontë Aurell (£20, Aurum Press) is a beautiful book – featuring gorgeous photography by Anna Jacobsen – that both prepares and inspires you to embrace more Scandi happiness.
