Four Swedish Michelin-starred chefs have created the menu suggestions for the Edible Country experience. These chefs all share a love for nature and what it has to offer. Their recipes will help give you a memorable visit in the Swedish nature.
Niklas Ekstedt grew up in a small village in the north of Sweden called Järpen. While training to be a chef, he was constantly taught that Scandinavia was not the place to look for good ingredients. But after many years of great success and a Michelin star, he suddenly felt an urge to return to his roots and explore what Swedish nature and traditions could bring to modern cooking. The result: Restaurang Ekstedt that has held its Michelin star since 2013.
Educated at the Hotel and restaurant school in Copenhagen and trained in some of the best kitchens in Denmark and Germany, Titti received a Michelin star for her work at Bloom in the Park in 2015. Today, Titti is planning to open a new restaurant together with Chef André Qvarnström. Right now, she is developing a new food destination in Malmö and travelling the world looking for inspiration. Wherever she goes, she always turns back to her native landscape of Skåne in the south of Sweden.
Jacob Holmström & Anton Bjuhr
Trained in top cuisines like L’Astrance and Pierre Gagnaire in Paris, Jacob & Anton have learned from the very zenith of international gourmet chefs. When returning home, they focused all their knowledge and skills on transforming the Swedish culinary tradition and the produce that every season brings into first-class cooking. Jacob started working at the restaurant, Mathias Dahlgren, and worked there as a sous chef until he and Anton took over a small restaurant in Stockholm 2011. They renovated the place and opened the restaurant, Gastrologik. Their success, one Michelin star since 2013, is based on the cooperation with hunters, farmers and breeders that share their values when it comes to quality, but also sustainability and ethics.
