This time of year sees all us Northern Hemisphere dwellers cosy up and head toward the cold winter. And no one does it better than the Danes. They have a certain knack for getting in the spirit of the season, and we’ve been looking a little further into it at Khoollect.
For me, it’s all about candles, warm blankets and a nice setting. But of course, none of this would be complete without a hearty culinary dish thrown in to warm the cockles. Sharing is caring, so here are some of my favourite comfort foods:
I have very fond memories of eating this dish as a child. Nothing says warmth like a steaming hot bowl of chicken dumpling soup to chase those shivers away.
Add this egg and bacon bread bake to your morning ritual to get you going. It’s also super easy to put together, which is always a bonus!
Feast your eyes upon my boeuf bourguignon with baguette dumplings. It goes down a treat with a glass of red wine. Little hint: give the flavours a chance to develop by making the stew the evening before you’d like to devour it.
Finally, If you’re a fan of warm chocolate on a cold autumnal evening, this desert certainly won’t disappoint.
So wrap up, get cosy, and tuck in. And while you’re enjoying those heart-warming flavours – feast your eyes on Khoollect’s hotlist of hygge Instagrammers who have the Danish art perfected.
