Books by Signe Johansen

  • Spirited

    Signe Johansen

    Product Code: CBIAI
    Hardback
    Featuring 50 cocktails, cordials and more, this is a flavour-focused drinks book with a feminist angle that opens up the 'boys club' world of serious cocktails, from bestselling food author and long-time whisky enthusiast, Signe Johansen. Spirited brings together fifty well-crafted cocktail recipes, all fuelled by a cook's palate and a love of creative ingredients. The recipes play with a wide range of flavours such as fresh, floral, herbal and spicy notes and encourage you to think like a cook not a bartender. With chapters on drambling (the joy of winter walks and whisky), creative and delicious drinks to serve at gatherings, warming nightcaps and non-alcoholic 'soothies' to calm an ailing spirit, there is a tipple here for every occasion. There is also a collection of recipes called Cupboard Cocktails - made from staple ingredients you may already have in your kitchen - and more ambitious weekend projects for gifts or special occasions. Spirited is a refreshing departure from earnest mixologists writing about the 'art of the cocktail' - books often written by men, for men. Instead, Signe opens the field for everyone and celebrates the convivial and social experience of healthy hedonism and raising a glass together. This is a warm and inclusive companion to the subject, packed with trade secrets, delicious recipes and fascinating insight into the world of drinks.

    Uplifting, heart-warming, life-enriching. I wish I could have read this book years ago - Nigel Slater Nordic countries are consistently rated as the best places to live for quality of life, happiness and education, literacy and gender equality. But what's their secret? In How To Hygge, renowned Scandinavian cook and writer Signe Johansen explores the culture of hygge, shares the secrets of Nordic living and shows you how to adopt these elements into your everyday life, wherever you are in the world. Hygge is central to the Nordic sense of well-being. Roughly translated as 'cosiness', it implies warmth, conviviality and community. With fifty recipes and glorious imagery, Johansen explains how to enjoy the outdoors the Nordic way, the joy of fika (coming together over cake and coffee), how to collaborate to achieve a sense of community and why alcohol is integral to the healthy hedonism of hygge. For those who have long admired the region's stylish design heritage, she reveals how to achieve Scandi-Cool in your own home, without breaking the bank. Explore the culture of hygge, and learn how to live your life to the fullest, Nordic-style.

We share a climate, a history (those Vikings got everywhere) and a love of cool, from sleek Nordic design to clear frosty November mornings. We also share our love of the outdoors - bracing autumn days, bright spring mornings, lazy summers by the water and long winter walks - and the pleasure of sharing good food with friends around the kitchen table. Discover the secrets of Scandinavian cooking - from delicious healthy breakfasts and leisurely brunches to tasty suppers and plenty of stress-free crowd-pleaser puddings. Learn the knack of putting together the perfect smorrebrod for a speedy Scandi lunch, and discover some very more-ish cakes and biscuits to accompany your afternoon cuppa.From cinnamon chestnut bread, cardamom cream buns and home-made gravadlax to soups, salads, smoothies and much more, Signe Johansen, a young cook steeped in the traditions of Scandinavia and trained by the best British chefs, shows us that it's not all herrings and meatballs...although you will find them in here too.
