Skåne, the southern-most region in Sweden, is the country’s larder. It’s right now in the midst of a food revolution, with local restaurants cooking up some of the Nordic region’s most interesting food. 

Revolutionalizing food 

With a strong focus on locally produced ingredients and sustainable production, the food landscape of Skåne is one of slow food and joie de vivre. This is the place for gourmet travellers looking for a slower pace of life and authentic tastes that spring from the rich, local soil. It surprised no one here that when The New York Times recently listed the most exciting food destinations of the moment, Skåne made it to their list.   

Nordic cuisine

The Nordic Cuisine is characterized by its purity, simplicity and freshness, and by a conscious use of seasonal foods and local produce. The concept turns familiar ingredients into new, mind-blowing sensations. Skåne, once part of Denmark, is home to some unique traditions and produce. Asparagus and peas, red deer and rook, rape seed oil and fresh potatoes - the list goes on. Keep reading for a list of ten of the region’s must-visit restaurants.
