The first stop on my itinerary is Österlen, a region of southern Sweden famous for it’s fine dining, local produce, cider and cultural heritage. However, I am not here just to enjoy the food and drink – I am visiting my parents. After all, I won’t be seeing them for a while.
I have been cooking since I was 5 years old, constantly challenging myself to try something new or unexpected. I have learned to prepare an enormous variety of dishes from sourdough bread to gelato and sashimi to soufflé. To work in a real restaurant kitchen, however, I must go beyond simple preparation of dishes and master a much more challenging art.
