Episode Summary

This week on Tea & Tattle, I’m joined by the journalist and author Gabriella Bennett, to chat about Gabriella’s first book, The Art of Coorie: How to Live Happy the Scottish Way. Gabriella is based in Glasgow, and her interest in ‘coorie’ first sparked when she started hearing Scottish creatives using the word in relation to their work. ‘Coorie’ is defined as ‘the Scottish art of deriving comfort, wellbeing and energy from wild landscapes and convivial interiors.’

Fascinated by the idea of ‘coorie’ and how the word was being used in contemporary Scotland, Gabriella toured the length and breadth of Scotland, speaking with many young makers, chefs and writers along the way. Her book beautifully captures the spirit of Scotland and its breathtaking landscapes, whilst also encouraging the reader to seek out more comfort and adventure from their everyday lives.

‘Coorie’ has some similarities with the Scandinavian philosophies of ‘hygge’ and ‘lagom,’ but in our conversation, Gabriella explains what makes ‘coorie’ so uniquely Scottish, and what lessons we can learn from this way of living to apply to all aspects of our lives, wherever we happen to live. If you’re struggling with the cold, grey days of late winter, then this is the perfect episode to listen to to help you feel a little happier and cosier - or, as Gabriella would have it, a little more coorie!
