Fine Dining The Traditional Swedish Way
‘During the summer and autumn, we harvest what grows on our land as it reaches the peak of ripeness, and prepare it using methods we have rediscovered from rich traditions.’
You only have to read the opening lines of restaurant Fäviken Magasinet’s website introduction to feel the atmosphere at this award winning Swedish eatery. Named as one of the world’s top 50 restaurants in this month’s The Diners Club® World’s 50 Best Restaurants Academy International Awards, Fäviken Magasinet is the pride of 32 year old chef Magnus Nilsson.
Often described as the world’s most remote restaurant, located in Järpen, Fäviken Magasinet oozes Scandi-cool in a most traditional and natural way. After the flight from Stockholm to Järpen, followed by a drive, intrepid diners will find a remote old barn converted into a restaurant, complete with cosy accommodation, sauna and tepee.
The award jury describes Nilsson’s food as ‘unique Scandinavian cuisine that’s worth the pilgrimage.’ Recently becoming the first restaurant outside the country’s capital, Stockholm, to be awarded two Michelin stars, this Swedish secret is fast becoming a recognised bucket-list dining destination.
