Unbeknownst to me a product of growing up in a lower middle class home in a northern mid western state I've been living the Hygge dream for most of my lifeThe author spends a lot of time talking about foraging and hunting as Hygge Nordic pursuits and maintains an air of when I was a child we loved climbing the mountains to look for the berries we'd have for dessert that night Her Hygge experiences come across as luxury and not necessity In this her appeal seems to be directed to urbanites and those who never had to cut kindling and bring in the firewood as one of their daily choresAlso 91 pages of this book are recipes with gorgeous photographs made from ingredients hard to find in anyplace outside the great population centers of Europe and AmericaSeriously I can't waltz into my local Walmart grocery store and score a bag of muscovado sugar and finding my own fresh cardamom pods to grindis another uest that would end in disappointmentIncluded too is a section on collecting high end Nordic art furniture pieces that can grace your Hygge'd living spaces with some degree of class We never had original eero saarenin pieces in my house growing up but we DID have handcrafted homemade furniture and linens once again out of necessityMy search to find THE book capturing the spirit of Hygge continues

How to HyggeAnd author Signe Johansen is a fresh informative lighthearted fully illustrated how to guide to hygge It’s a combination of recipes helpful tips for cozy living at home and cabin porn essential elements of living the Danish way which incidentally encourages a daily dose of “healthy hedonism” Who can resist th. I'm very disappointed that this book was the first book I've read on the subject of Hygge I found the author to be self righteous and arrogant in the sense that she seems to imply that if you want a life built around the concept of Hygge you must follow her recipe to the letterwhich apparently includes hunting and fishing trekking through the woods and being willing to stuff your body with meat salt and sugar I'm all for a good hike or some snow shoeing but that's not for everyone and as a healthy vegan neither is killing animals or putting cholesterol raising meat or sugar laden cake into my body for me Ok I do occasionally have a piece of vegan cake but I also love a good bliss ball and eating a couple while reading by candlelight feels pretty Hygge to me despite the lack of refined sugar and cows milk my lactose intolerant digestive system appreciates the lack of dairy as well In all honesty I didn't mind having to skip the section on hunting and fishing even though I didn't really understand what it has to do with cozy living Nor did I mind skipping the section on food and recipes as I knew it wouldn't work with my dietary choices I have no problem with her sharing her culture's sporting or food traditions but I did not open this book expecting to have a large aspect of my and my wellness tribes way of life so blatantly criticized ridiculed and disrespected or to basically be told that if I'm not willing to give up a part of my value system and desire for healthy living I'm never going to fully be able to experience true Hygge I have several books on the subject waiting for me and hopefully they will be inclusive to all lifestyles and teach that anyone can create a sense of Hygge in any circumstance even those of us who are allergic to milk and can't eat the cake
