Description


A little book on the Swedish tradition of fika--the twice-daily coffee break--including facts, quotes, tips, and 20 sweet and savory recipes.

While the Danish concept of hygge as caught on around the globe, so has lagom--its Swedish counterpart. An essential part of the lagom lifestyle, fika is the simple art of taking a break--sometimes twice a day--to enjoy a warm beverage and sweet treat with friends. This delightful gift book offers an introduction to the tradition along with recipes to help you establish your own fika practice.
