North How To Live Scandinavian

North – How To Live Scandinavian is a book by Bronte Aurell. It’s a tongue in cheek view of Scandinavians, (not at all based on Stereotypes) but as it’s written by a Dane I guess that’s ok. It lists each Scandinavian country and describes what it’s like to live there and what the quirks are of each country.

If you want more Scandi in your life, this is the book for you. By the end of it you’ll be stuffing yourself with pickled herrings and drinking Aquavit like a local! It covers everything from style, to food to how to be in a relationship with a Scandinavian. It also has some really lovely recipes in there which are easy to follow and yield great results, just have a look at my cinnamon rolls! As it’s divided into non consecutive chapters, you can dip in and out of it at will without feeling like you’re missing something.

Scandinavian Cinnamon Rolls

The book is aimed at anyone with a love of Scandi or Hygge and contains lots of humerous anecdotes. It’s a fun and light hearted read with lots of beautiful photographs to complement the text. It also delves into the culture of the Scandinavian countries and their ways of life. I particularly like the section on style but it could have been longer and it’s mostly from a male perspective. There was definitely an opportunity to insert some fabulous Scandi street style photos here.

I also really liked the recipes (I’ll definitely be trying more of them) and the description of how to Smorgasboard, which I think would be brilliant as entertainment instead of a dinner party. Can’t wait to try it! I would give this book an eight out of ten purely for entertainment value and I’d definitely recommend it as a fun read.
