€54,95

Witty, candid, and insightful: Magnus Nilsson's ode to his extraordinary restaurant, FavikenIn 2019, Magnus Nilsson closed Faviken, his one-of-a-kind restaurant in remote Sweden - a difficult decision, as it was close to his heart and at the height of its success. Here is the Faviken story: how it became a world-class destination, how the industry it was a part of has changed, and why Magnus eventually elected to pursue new projects. Faviken: 4015 Days, Beginning to End is a vital commentary on food culture today and includes illuminating essays on subjects as wide ranging as creativity; balancing familial responsibilities while running a restaurant; the hypocrisy of sustainability in restaurants; the search for lagom; social media; imitation vs.

plagiarism; haute cuisine; the art of hospitality; and the importance of craft over innovation. The book also includes a chronological list of every dish ever served at the restaurant and highlights 100 memorable recipes. The book's stunning photography includes a mixture of archival photographs and newly shot images of the food, the restaurant, the staff, and the surrounding setting of Northern Sweden.

A textural cover made of blue cloth and red paper with a wood-grain effect references the shape and color of the Faviken building. Magnus Nilsson is the author of Faviken (2012), The Nordic Cookbook (2015), Nordic: A Photographic Essay of Landscapes (2016), and The Nordic Baking Book (2018), all published with Phaidon.
