Swedish chef Björn Frantzén at Selfridges

Selfridges in London is currently hosting a series of exceptional dining experiences with some of the brightest stars of Nordic cuisine. I had the opportunity to to take part in in a press luncheon with the Swedish chef Björn Frantzén. It was a lunch inspired by his Gastro Pub Flying Elk menu. The food was more than delicious – in fact is was a real feast with Nordic twists on traditional pub classics. The lunch included roasted scallops with truffled scrambled eggs, crispy potato, raw mushrooms and beurre noisette with aged, white soy as well as Eton mess with whipped Earl Grey, sea buckthorn, crystallised seaweed & cloudberries.

Björn Frantzén is no doubt one of the most famous chefs in Sweden. He learnt his craft with Tom Aikens, Raymond Blanc and Alain Passard. It did not take long before opening his first restaurant Frantzén in Stockholm that the restaurant was awarded a Michelin star. The restaurant Frantzén now has two Michelin stars. Frantzén also runs The Flying Elk, Catering Frantzén, Studio Frantzén, Corner Club and Gaston Wine, and has consistently stayed in San Pellegrino’s ’World’s 50 Best Restaurants’ list since 2012.
