TAXINGE KROG, SWEDEN, 79 p
The countryside surrounding this old, former grocery store is truly idyllic. The kitchen consists of Gustav Öhman alone, and his cooking style is experimental and savvy. Furthermore, a sustainable way of doing things seems to be a part of his DNA. Gustav’s collaborations with producers are long-standing and almost symbiotic, not least with vegetable producer Under Tallarna with whom he organizes a yearly get-together revolving around food, small-scale farming, and the environment. A night at Taxinge Krog is intimate and offers many surprises when it comes to flavor.
