Sweden is a culinary nation shaped by its countryside. The summer with long, light days and cool evenings produces fruit that grows slowly and has rich flavors. The coastline provides high-quality fish and shellfish. And the vast forests are full of berries, mushrooms and game, which all have a special place in Swedish cuisine.

Sweden’s nature and the produce it yields create opportunities for exclusive culinary experiences. And as the Swedish food scene grows, a new style of cooking is developing. Swedish chefs are returning to their culinary roots, rediscovering classic Swedish dishes and fantastic local seasonal ingredients, and giving them a modern twist. Swedish chefs are renowned for their ability to make the best of this blend of tradition and innovation.
