The art of hygge

Saturday, Jan 28, 2017 at 3:36pm

The centuries-old Danish tradition of hygge (pronounced “hue-gah”) comes from a country voted to be the happiest on Earth, and its special custom of emotional warmth, slowness and appreciation, is becoming increasingly familiar to an international audience. To hygge means to enjoy the good things in life with good people.

Look after the jump for a selection of our favourite books on hygge, Scandinavian cooking, and the joys of living like a Dane...

Hot fun in the Summertime

Thursday, May 23, 2013 at 5:07pm

Pausing for a Cool One
For over 300 years, prairie-dwellers have been brewing, selling and sipping their beers. 300 Years of Beer by Bill Wright and Dave Craig is a look back at Manitoba's colourful brewing past. With over 400 colour illustrations of rare beer labels, retro bottles and ads dating back to the 1870s, Wright and Craig chronicle the history of Manitoba suds from the beer baron era of Patrick Shea and E.L. Drewry to the microbrewers of today.

The Thrill of the Grill
One of Canada's most popular food entertainers, Ted Reader has a legendary passion for the open flame. His new book, Gastro Grilling, is packed with over 125 recipes for great-flavoured steaks of beef, veal, pork, lamb, and game - the essence of grilling - as well as chicken and seafood. Reader makes it easy for gastro grillers to master the grill with delicious, simple-to-prepare dishes.

Burgers and Soda Pop
Guy Fieri has found his and more. The Food Network star continues his bestselling series with Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives: The Funky Finds in Flavortown. He gobbles up the miles in a survey of great American diners and returns with a carload of hilarious stories from Guy himself, his Krew, and the restaurant owners. Includes a full-colour fold-out map of the United States featuring every restaurant in the book. Where's the funky find in your flavourtown?
