THE MIND OF A CHEF
Air date: Sat., Nov. 15, 7:00 pm
Journey into Chef Magnus Nilsson’s meticulously planned and executed kitchen at Fäviken for a look at what it takes to run, manage and maintain standards at what some say is the most creative and surprising restaurant on the planet. Chef Nilsson explores how his early cooking experience influenced him to focus on local ingredients in his homeland, Sweden, and nearby Norway. He shows how to make the most of ingredients at their freshest and preserve them in creative ways, and examines traditional Nordic culinary techniques in the Faroe Islands.
When Chef Nilsson develops a dish at Faviken, he pays careful attention to the unique properties of an ingredient. Through research and recipe testing, the components of a dish are combined with the aim of preserving their natural quintessence. This episode follows the life cycle of an ingredient as it transforms from its organic state into a dish at his restaurant.
