And so does the list of fantastic gourmet restaurants in the area, with new places opening on a regular basis. Read on to discover four not-to-be-missed places for lovers of gourmet food.  

Daniel Berlin

Michelin-chef Daniel Berlin offers his guests unique culinary experiences in an intimate countryside setting. Situated in the village of Skåne Tranås, the staff live their dream of experimenting with local produce. Daniel’s gastronomic expression balances classic, familiar, safe flavours with their roots in Skåne to modern, technically driven experimentalism. The old-fashioned house and courtyard seats 15 guests around five tables. Daniel Berlin is passionately involved in every inch of his business and when you eat your dinner he will probably have shot the deer himself, and grown the vegetables in his garden. Even though it’s off the beaten track, you’ll still need to book your table way in advance.
