No gas, no electricity, no gadgets. At Ekstedt, they cook everything on fire, using Scandinavian wood to give the food a truly unique character. As Swedish super chef Niklas says, “you can create minor miracles with fire, smoke, ashes and soot”.
Yes indeed. Resurrecting long-lost cooking techniques, Ekstedt’s eponymous Stockholm restaurant – which has held a Michelin star since 2013 – produces elegant and astonishingly creative dishes each and every day, with burning wood their only source of heat. Molecular gastronomy this ain’t… Niklas Ekstedt has become a local legend in his native Sweden and we were thrilled to welcome him into our kitchen, where he fired up the grill for a week of autumnal offerings inspired by ancient Scandinavian traditions.
