In The News: Dine For Free Courtesy Of Four Michelin-Star ChefsApril 12, 2019
The cultural and tourism office, alongside four renowned chefs, have created a dining experience unlike any other. There will be seven tables placed al fresco around Sweden. Visitors who sign up for the experience will be able to eat for free. The only catch is they have to cook the food themselves.
Titti Qvarnström, Niklas Ekstedt, Jacob Holmström and Anton Bjuhr have crafted the nine-course menu and the seven dining locations are in Skåne, West Sweden, Lapland, Jämtland, Småland, Värmland and the Stockholm archipelago.
And let’s not forget about other Michelin-starred chef, Magnus Nilsson. Completely unrelated, but he’ll be serving Easter dinner this year in a ski gondola. Food and Wine has all the details.
