Mugs of hot chocolate. Candles. Hugs. Raining or snowing outside? Even better.
What is Hygge?
The Danish art of cozy living – otherwise known as hygge – is taking the world and our kitchens by storm. There’s no single English word to describe hygge (pronounced hue-gah) but it is all about a state of mind of simplicity, coziness and a general feeling of warmth and welcoming. Picture heavy blankets, warm knits. Hygge is a year round thing although mostly associated with winter due to images of burning logs, candles and cozy knits.
How you can you bring a bit of hygge into your kitchen?
Forget about all those fancy kitchen gadgets – forget about the tool that pits, peels and cuts an avocado all in one, forget about the 7-in-1 cooking appliance – hygge is all about old – but always reliable – classic cooking tools. It’s all about function and form over fanciness.
Hygge is more about moments then it is a definite setting – it’s about those moments where we light a candle at night or have a home cooked evening meal with friends that can make a huge difference to one’s spirit. Hygge is about being present enough to recognize and acknowledge the moment and feeling that makes the ordinary feels extraordinary.
