Swedish and nordic food dominated the Nobel banquet menu this year. Top chef Andreas Hedlund, who won Swedish Chef of the Year in 2002, started the menu off last night with Arctic Char and Kalix bleak roe from the Gulf of Bothnia. Wish we’d been there to try it too!
Here’s the menu in full:
Nobel Banquet Menu 2012
Marinated Arctic char with cauliflower terrine,
Kalix bleak roe and dill mayonnaise
Pheasant with chanterelle mushrooms,
poached pear, winter vegetables,
almond potato purée and red wine gravy
Trilogy of cherries with pistachio-covered
mascarpone cheese and black cherry sorbet
But the guy from the Muppet Show is not our only Swedish chef. Sweden is full of brilliant chefs and this week a whole bunch of award winning chefs will head to London for a blind date with Britain’s coolest food bloggers! You can follow all the action on Twitter under #SweDishDate
The chefs are all previous winners of the Swedish Chef of the Year competition and they will come to London to cook delicious and innovative food from different parts of Sweden.
Check out the bloggers’ own blogs below to see how they get on during their Swedish Blind Date.
Will it be love at first taste?
