Bella Cucina

It cannot be translated to a single word rather, hygge (pronounced “hoo-ga”) is a Danish philosophy or way of life. It encompasses a feeling of well-being through enjoying the simple things in life. The cozy contentment of being nestled around the fireside in the company of good friends or gathered around the table to share a home-cooked meal. It’s a slower pace of life that is perfect for these wintery days.
