"Magnus is one of the brightest chefs that I have ever met – and this comes through so clearly when flicking through the pages of this book."—René Redzepi, NOMA
"...Extraordinary food... A book about an honest, and fundamentally Scandinavian, philosophy of food."—The Sunday Times
Fäviken is an exclusive insight into one of the world's most interesting restaurants: Fäviken Magasinet.
Serving only 12 people every day on a remote farm in northern Sweden, using only ingredients sourced and prepared within the immediate vicinity of the restaurant, head chef Magnus Nilsson is creating some of the most inspirational food in restaurants today. For the first time his incredible approach to working with nature is revealed, which will fascinate and delight all aspiring chefs and lovers of good food.
Even though not everyone can visit Fäviken, Nilsson's approach to working with ingredients in the most natural, intuitive way possible, and making the most of each season, will inspire all cooks and food-lovers to think differently about the ingredients that are available to them. Many of the basic recipes for yoghurt, bread, porridge, vinegar, pickles and preserves are simple and straightforward enough for anyone to attempt at home, and the advice on natural preservation methods can be followed by anyone.
The texts will provide inspiration for chefs and food lovers all over the world and are fully accessible to the general reader.
