Here you will find a different restaurant with a kitchen unlike most others, where the Nordic cuisine is in its most extreme, challenging and fun way without using molecular cooking or water baths. The cuisine based on what Magnus and his team forage, farm and hunt locally and from their own estate.
The restaurant caters for only 12 people each evening having a menu that is the same for all guests. Each dish is served to all the guests at the same time, introduced by Magnus himself. Some dishes involve use of traditional implements such as nineteenth-century ice-cream churn or an old sourdough bread basket, which is still used for proving the dough.
Some of Magnus signature dishes include wild trout’s roe served in a crust of dried pigs blood, a scallop that has been cooked in its own shell, langoustine with almost burnt cream, marrow with dices of raw cows heart and the whisked duck egg with raspberry jam.
Fäviken Magasinet offers one of the world’s most headstrong, authentic and ingenious culinary experiences and is probably the most talked about restaurants in international food media today – ranked 34 by The World’s 50 Best Restaurant list.
