Cook, author, entrepreneur, hygge-activist

Hej! I’m Brontë, a food writer and co-founder of ScandiKitchen, a café, grocery shop, online store and wholesale business. After I moved from Denmark to the UK and started a career in finance, I quickly realised that wasn’t for me. After some happy years with Innocent drinks, I launched ScandiKitchen with my Swedish husband Jonas on 10th July 2007 – and gave birth to our first child a few hours later, just for an additional challenge.

So far, I’ve authored two cookery books and recently published my own guide to hygge after an essay I wrote about it caused a mini media controversy. My fourth book, Nørth: How To Live Scandinavian, is a humorous, but incisive look at what it means to be Scandinavian, and will be available in autumn 2017. I also manage to get out of the kitchen to appear on TV and radio as a cook, guest chef and talking about life as an entrepreneur, as well as helping with brand and recipe development for various companies. I created the #proudimmigrant movement in 2014 as a response to my own experiences as someone from overseas living and working in the UK.
