About Bronte Aurell
I'm Bronte Aurell and I own the ScandiKitchen Cafe in London, England.
Our cafe was set up in 2007 - because we (my partner Jonas and I) missed food from our homes in Scandinavia. We wanted to create a place where ex-pats could find the foods they missed from home and where everybody else felt welcome to pop by and enjoy some nice open sandwiches, cakes and coffee.
The first book ScandiKitchen is about the everyday dishes we cook at home - both savoury and sweet. Fika & Hygge (2016) is all about baking - good, solid home baking - from pastry to cakes and comfort bakes and cookies.
The mini book Hygge is about just that: Finding space and time to be with family and friends in a busy world.
Then Nørth came along - a book about Scandinavian culture and how to be more Scandinavian in your day to day life. It's quite tongue in cheek - and about how we differ as countries.
2018 was a busy year: ScandiKitchen summer was published and then in October 2018, ScandiKitchen Christmas.
Between all our books, I think you're bound to find the recipe you're looking for.
You can follow me on www.bronteaurell.com for updates and more information.
Do pop by and say 'hej' if you are ever in London.

“A festival of beautiful bakes and stunning photos.” Review of ScandiKitchen: Fika & Hygge, Good Housekeeping Magazine.
Let Brontë Aurell of The ScandiKitchen Café show you how to celebrate your Christmas Scandi-style by sharing her delicious recipes and family traditions with you.
Anyone who has ever been in Scandinavian in December will know that Scandinavians really love Christmas. From huddling up in candlelit snowed-in cottages to consuming glögg at every opportunity, Christmas is peak-hygge season all over Norway, Sweden and Denmark. Everything reverts back to tradition once Advent Sunday has come along.
From saffron scented bakes to ‘gingerbread spice in everything!’, Christmas is the time to break the never-ending darkness with edible treats and joyful feelings. Scandinavians visit friends and families taking along something home baked to share. They have Jul-Smörgåsbord parties where old and young celebrate with a spread of traditional dishes and delicacies. Everything they do for Jul is centred around food, tradition and home comforts.
