Steffi Knowles-Dellner, Lagom: The Swedish Art of Eating Harmoniously
Lagom: n. just the right amount, balanced, harmonious.
This beautiful, fresh cookbook offers genuine insight into how Swedes eat and cook with recipes that fit around the seasons, occasions, times of day, and appetite. Eating and cooking in tune with ‘lagom’ means embracing food that is good for body and soul, unfussy, delicious and sustaining, and all in harmony. The Swedes understand that balance is everything that you crave comforting food when a bitter wind is howling outside, that refreshing, lighter meals suit hot, hazy days, that a mid-morning bun is good for morale, and that a long, sociable lunch with friends and family on a Sunday is the most rewarding way to end the weekend. There is a time and place for every kind of food, and when everything is in equilibrium, you will be content and satisfied.
Steffi will introduce you to the unique Swedish concepts that encapsulate lagom, from the well-known smörgåsbord table of open sandwiches, and Fredags mys (‘cosy Fridays’) when hunkering down on a cosy sofa and tucking into tacos is a must, all the way to the irresistible idea of lördagsgodis a single day for eating sweets to satisfy even the sweetest tooth.
Anna Lewis, Sketchy Muma
This gorgeous little book charts the various bewildering stages of becoming a mother, from those tell-tale blue lines in the pregnancy test, to labour, birth, coming home and venturing out. Breastfeeding nightmares, eating dinner with one hand, soft play hell and chronic sleep deprivation – but also the sheer beauty of falling in love again and the amazing discovery of what it’s like to have a family – these are all captured in Sketchy Muma’s glorious drawings. Anna Lewis understands the light and shade that comes with motherhood, and it is those universal truths that will connect all those parents who delight in her sketches.
Hey there, Ted! Are you playing dressing up? Who will Ted be? A brave knight with a pet dragon? A jolly pirate captain? Or maybe an awesome astronaut?
Time to go, Ted! But where will Ted go? Catching lions in the grass? Spotting polar bears in the freezer? Or maybe hanging out with a bunch of hungry monkeys?
These gorgeous board books feature sturdy flaps on every page and are ideal for little hands.
