The Art of Coorie: How to Live Happy the Scottish Way by Gabriella Bennett for AUTHOR

Regular price £14.99 Sale

Written by the talented journalist, Gabriella Bennett.

Coorie - or còsagach in Gaelic - is the Scottish version of hygge. In The Art Of Coorie, Gabriella Bennett explores what coorie is and how it has helped nurture the astonishing creativity that Scotland is famed for, despite an often harsh and unforgiving climate.

The Art of Coorie explores lifestyle, homes and interiors, traditions, and how to enjoy life despite challenging elements. It looks at how to appreciate what we have around us and how to use the best of all things Scottish to enhance life and its pleasures.

Gabriella Bennett is a journalist based in Glasgow. She writes for The Times about Scottish interiors, property and shopping habits. Researching The Art of Coorie she travelled the length and breadth of Scotland speaking to people whose love of coorie is shown in their homes, creativity and approach to a life lived well. Best of all, it gave her the chance to explore the Scottish landscape by swimming in its lochs and seas. The Art of Coorie is Gabriella's first book.

Reviews

"Like a good malt whisky, The Art of Coorie shines Scotland in a lovely warm glow." - KIRSTY WARK

"I was completely charmed by The Art of Coorie. It is a fine word indeed and a deeply pleasing notion. Gabriella's musings and discoveries are timely. All of my associations with coorie come from childhood – being invited to feel welcome, safe and loved, close by the side of someone making just enough room. It's high time the concept of coorie was more widely known. We've long valued the thought here in Scotland and now it can go out to the wider world and wrap up more folk, make them warm and well. Coorie is good for the heart and the soul." NEIL OLIVER


What our customers say...

I ordered a gorgeous pinch bowl for a girlfriends 40th and it arrived as promised; beautiful wrapped with a lovely personalised note and information on the piece and who made it. Everything was of such high quality and elegantly put together….my friend absolutely loved it and really appreciated the effort I had gone to. I didn't tell her it wasn’t quite all done by me!
