It's not often you find a restaurant that truly stuns you with its brilliance and reaffirms just how good it is to be alive. Fäviken Magasinet, run Magnus Nilsson, is one such place. Trained in Paris under Pascal Barbot at the three Michelin-starred L'Astrance, Nilsson returned to his native Sweden and almost gave up cooking altogether to become a wine writer. Luckily for us he didn't, and in the relatively short time he's been at Fäviken, he's succeeded in turning it into one of the most remarkable restaurants on the planet.
Last month I took a trip there with Oslo's Food Studio and you can read my account of the experience on their site – click here for the full article.
In the meantime, here's a little slideshow I put together complete with the love-it-or-loathe-it Jämtlandian folk music that is played during dinner at Fäviken.
