It’s official, the coolest thing to do this cool season is to hygge… everyone wants to hunker down, cosy up, and do what the Danes do when the going gets cold! According to all the books and blogs, and there are apparently many authorities on this matter now, hygge is about creating all the warm fuzzies and taking the time to enjoy the good things in life with those you care about. Sounds rather idyllic, doesn’t it?
My form of hygge is quite predictable – good food, good wine, good company. All quite achievable anywhere in the world, but I think we all have to experience hygge at least once in the place where it all began: Denmark. Winter is undoubtedly prime-hygge-time but after our unseasonably warm autumn weekend in Copenhagen, I’m convinced that the Danes embrace it all year round and that food plays a big part in the culture.
