International Chef Exchange: A Taste of West Sweden , 23rd May 2017
Tue 23 May 2017, 19:00 – 22:00 BST
Sponsored by Lisch Swedish vodka.
Chef Linus Palm from Hvita Hjorten on the south shore of Lake Vänern in West Sweden joins Tom Griffiths of the forthcoming Pascere restaurant (formerly of Flank) for a one-off celebration of Scandinavian food at Steven Edward’s new restaurant Etch.
Linus is head chef at one of West Sweden’s leading restaurants and has a passion – or even obsession – with all things local. Vegetables are supplied every day for the kitchen garden of the neighbouring castle Läcko, whilst freshwater fish and Swedish caviar are provided by local fisherman. The forests of West Sweden are filled with abundant berries for foraging, and also home to wild elk and boar, providing the protein for the menus. In line with much of Swedish cuisine, Hivta Hjorten prides itself on minimal waste and using traditional methods of preservation including pickling, fermenting and curing.
This event is the return leg of the Brighton & Hove Food and Drink Festival's International Chef Exchange that saw chef Tom cook at the Passion for Mat food festival in Gothenburg and preparing a meal with Linus at Sweden.
