Swedish Culinary Summer

On July 14th our Editors had the opportunity to take part in the exclusive/private Swedish Culinary Summer 20 VVIP persons event at the “Chef’s House”, in the Hamptons for a brunch.  The brunch was designed and culinary crafted by Michelin Star Chef, Magnus Lindström, from Swedish Taste in Göteborg, Sweden.

While en route the the event, the hand selected guests sipped on Heering Liqueur Coffee mixed with vodka and milk. A great start to a full day of activities. At the event, the invited guests had the opportunity to create there own rub and sauce for their steak, learned how to pickle vegetables, as well as how to craft the perfect Xanté mojito. Xanté is a premium pear-infused spirit from Sweden, which has been widely popular in Europe for more than 10 years.

Swedish cuisine, and worldwide interest in it, has grown exponentially over the last 20 years. Zagat just placed Swedish restaurants in the number two and number three positions in the top ten restaurants in the world. There are three Swedish restaurants on Pellegrino’s World’s 50 Best Restaurants list. In October 2012, the Swedish National Team sweep the Culinary Olympics, in all major categories. In 2011, a Swedish chef won 2nd place in Bocuse d’Or (Scandinavian chefs took all 3 top prizes – and in the last 6 competitions 11 of the 18 top prizes) as well as numerous other international cooking competitions. In recognition of its world standing, Bocuse d’Or Europe will be held in Stockholm in 2014. The number of Michelin-starred restaurants has increased and several Swedish chefs have opened restaurants outside the country.
