FIKA is a Swedish word meaning to meet up for a cup of coffee or tea over something delicious. It is also the word for the delicious treats themselves. Swedes traditionally stop twice a day for fika: taking a much-needed break from the daily grind.

People fika with family, colleagues, friends, children and even go on fika dates.

HYGGE (pronounced hue-guh) is a word that originated in Norway but is now mainly used in Denmark. It means ’a sublime state of cosiness you feel when you are with loved ones and nothing else matters’. Hygge can be enhanced by the addition of a log fire, a good film, a cup of something warm and a sweet treat…hence the ideal combination of the two terms.

Chapters are divided into Biscuits and Cookies, Tray and No bakes, Everyday Fika, Little Fancy Cakes, Celebration Cakes and Bread and Batters.

With features on special Scandi winter celebrations, their baking traditions and how to bring fika and hygge into your life.
