Chef Linus Palm from Hvita Hjorten on the south shore of Lake Vänern in West Sweden joined Tom Griffiths (formerly of Flank) for a one-off celebration of Scandinavian food at Steven Edward’s new restaurant Etch.
Linus is head chef at one of West Sweden’s leading restaurants and has a passion – or even obsession – with all things local. Vegetables are supplied every day for the kitchen garden of the neighbouring castle Läcko, whilst freshwater fish and Swedish caviar are provided by local fisherman. The forests of West Sweden are filled with abundant berries for foraging, and also home to wild elk and boar, providing the protein for the menus. In line with much of Swedish cuisine, Hivta Hjorten prides itself on minimal waste and using traditional methods of preservation including pickling, fermenting and curing.
