Food guide and chemistry student at KTH

I am madly interested in everything food related: flavors and how our senses work, preparation methods, ingredients, cultural aspects, chemically, technically...everything! I'm what you would call a true food nerd! I also love to convey my interest and to exchange experiences with others.

Favorite food
Food made with love, passion and knowhow. Dishes prepared consciously from a clear idea, where flavor and quality ingredients are central.

Background
During a study break, I began working at Stikkinikki - a chain of gelato cafés where they make their own organic ice cream. There, I developed a true passion for food-craftsmanship, wonderful ingredients and for creating unexpected yet delicious flavor combinations. Furthermore, I realized how much chemistry actually is involved in cooking. At Stikkinikki I was also responsible for all the ice cream tastings, which led me to discover how fun and rewarding it is to impart knowledge and passion to others. Thereafter, I began guiding for Food Tours Stockholm, in 2013.

With my extensive background in food, it is natural for me to share with my Food Tour guests what is my greatest love, infatuation and passion in life - the good food. As a wise chef once told me, "After Love, There Will Always Be cuisine".

Favorite food
I love raw food! Two of my favorite examples of this are sashimi made from “Salma salmon” and freshly ground beef tartar made from high quality meat.

Background
Born by the stove and learned how to walk between the tables at my parents' restaurant. After culinary school and education in journalism, I became a food writer, and starred in most of the major Swedish newspapers. Author of 27 cookbooks, participates regularly in newspapers and TV.

Founder and food guide

Since I can remember, I have always had a passion for good and well-prepared food. When travelling, both in Sweden and abroad, local food experiences have been the most memorable highlights of my trips. My mission is to show the quality, diversity and the inventiveness of the Stockholm food scene.

Favorite food
Swedish traditional food (husmanskost) is very close to my heart but I also have a soft spot for much of what the different Asian cuisines have to offer. Generally, I love genuine, well cooked food that tastes good!

Background
I have been running businesses within experience and service sectors for over 20 years. I was born and raised in Stockholm. I started Food Tours Stockholm in 2013, something that I've dreamed about since I experienced a food tour in Bangkok more than 10 years ago.

Food guide and recipe reviewer

All the knowledge I have acquired about food during my professional career is great to have as a foundation when guiding Food Tour guests. My special interest is Swedish and Nordic food.

Favorite food
As a child I got to help my grandmother frying freshly caught Baltic herring on the iron stove. This was when I first gained my interest in fresh and seasonal produce. I prefer to eat according to the season, because I love to long for food cooked from ingredients when they are at their best.

Background
Food and service has been my livelihood throughout my professional career and I have been a food writer for over 20 years. I am specialized in Swedish and Nordic food and also devote myself to scrutinize recipes for magazines, recipe databases, and book publishers. I have been guiding food walks since 2014, and Food Tours since 2015.

It is on the basis of accumulated experience we can evolve to live well. Understanding culinary tradition increases awareness about the value of food. Understanding other cultures culinary traditions gives insight into human existence, utilization of and adaptation to its surroundings. I explore food and food culture with a hope to highlight the value of food on an existential level, but also from a life-enriching point of view.

A handful of sichauanpeppar, a handful of chili and something fermented and anything goes.
