Create your best Scandi-style life, no matter where you call home.

Your heritage and family history matter. And now it's easier than ever to connect with and embrace your Scandinavian roots.

Do you:

  • yearn to know more about the traditions of your heritage and how to incorporate them into your home?
  • want to bake and cook more traditional Scandinavian foods for each season and holiday?
  • desire practical, accessible, and fun ways to share your heritage with your family and friends?
  • wish you had the skills and resources to tell your family's history (and your own story!)?
  • want to go beyond the surface-level trends of hygge, fika, and other Scandi ideals and learn to really incorporate them into your life?

Food and cultural heritage have a way of connecting us to one another.

And don't we need that more than ever right now? That's why I created The Heart & Huset community, and it would be an honor to have you join us.

If you long to incorporate more of your heritage (or simply your love of all things Scandinavian, no matter your roots) into your life and home, create rich memories with your loved ones by exploring your shared history together, and capture your family's recipes, stories, and history before it's too late, you're in the right place.

I'm Daytona Danielsen, an author who specializes in the connection between food, family, and heritage. I've spent more than a decade sharing Scandinavian recipes--first on my food blog Outside Oslo and most recently in my cookbook Modern Scandinavian Baking. I love the food, history, and culture of my heritage because of the way it connects me to my loved ones, both past and present. I'm guessing you feel the same.

The Heart & Huset is an intimate and engaging community designed to help you get the resources, recipes, and connections you need to live out your best Scandinavian-style life, no matter where you call home. Will you join us?
