Whether it’s food, drink or just living, the Swedish seem to hold the secret of how to do it in style. Now Londoners everywhere get the chance to ‘Try Swedish’ for themselves – with three days of master classes hosted by TV Chef Gizzi Erskine and BBC’s ‘Great British Bake Off’ 2010 winner Edd Kimber.
The master classes will be a culinary exploration around Sweden’s natural larder. Guests will enjoy cooking, tasting and learning about food and drink from Sweden’s most epicurean regions – West Sweden with Gothenburg, Skåne and Jämtland Härjedalen and learn directly from three experienced chefs and drinks experts from Sweden.
Gizzi Erskine will host master classes and take guests through a three course “Compass Menu” where they will cook and taste the very best of Sweden’s natural larder together with the amazing variety of beverages the country has to offer.
On Saturday, Edd Kimber’s Saturday baking sessions will focus on Fika with uber cool Swedish bakery Fabrique. Here, guests can immerse themselves in Swedish past time of Fika and learn the art of Swedish baking with the champion of the Great British Bake Off 2010 and the London’s finest Nordic baking specialists.
Nordic gastronomy is today the very focus of attention for the international food media. Sweden, along with the other Nordic countries, offers a refuge of clean, unspoiled nature, as well as the taste of contemporary exoticism.
The west coast of Sweden boasts its own marine version of ‘big five’: langoustine, lobster, oyster, shrimp and mussels. Benefiting from the cold, clean water, the shellfish are of supreme quality.
The southernmost region of Sweden, Skåne, consists of vast, fertile fields, beautiful rolling hills, enchanted forests and a very long coastline. This is an ideal region for growing, farming, foraging and hunting – the Swedish equivalent of Tuscany.
The vast northern part of Sweden is a great source of characteristic produce and exciting traditions. The cellar-aged goats’ cheeses from just a few, small farms in Jämtland and Härjedalen, with unique character and taste from each particular cellar, can be found on the Slow Food Foundation’s biodiversity list, The Arc of Taste.
