World-renowned Danish chefs introduce us to the New Nordic Cuisine Manifesto in this beautiful cookery book...

When it comes to living a healthy life, it seems there is plenty we can learn from the Scandinavians. The UN’s World Happiness Report, in fact, now ranks Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden at the top of their happiness list.

And for good reason. If we aren’t coveting their minimalist interiors or enviable work-life balance, we are trying desperately to absorb their superior understanding of how to keep their skin looking great in wintry weather.

And now, there’s yet another arena in which this overachieving corner of the globe excel: the kitchen.

Far more than  your regular cookery book, Nordic by Nature has been visualised through vibrant imagery of the kitchens, forests, or castle gardens where inspiration is drawn, created and consumed.
