Editorial Reviews



"For those who can’t travel to the wilderness of Northern Sweden, this book is an excellent look into that region’s bounties and the brilliant vision of Magnus Nilsson. And, this is just the beginning." – David Chang, Momofuku

"Magnus is one of the brightest chefs that I have ever met – and this comes through so clearly when flicking through the pages of this book." – René Redzepi, NOMA

"Phaidon, lately, has led the way in quirky, uniquely designed, international cookbooks. The press raises the bar dramatically here with 100 recipes taken from Fäviken Magasinet, a restaurant in a remote area of Sweden, some 375 miles north of Stockholm, that serves only 12 people a day, but is fast becoming a bastion of New Nordic Cuisine, thanks to head chef Nilsson." – Starred Review, Publishers Weekly

"This collection of recipes and stories from Nilsson’s experimental, hyperlocal restaurant in west‐central Sweden is a beautiful reminder of what ’farm-to-table‘ really means. . . The impact of his creative vision is undeniable." – Bon Appétit

"Nilsson’s new book. . . is part treatise and part instruction manual. It also makes for some sublimely consciousness‐altering reading if you love to cook." – The Globe and Mail

"Just as the best travel books describe an internal and external journey, Fäviken tells the story of a chef discovering his cuisine in the woods of Sweden. The sense of place is palpable and this is both an aspirational and inspirational ode to nature." – The Huffington Post

"An ode to a fantastical place and a type of cooking that has mostly disappeared from the Western world." – The Daily Beast

"Its heavy‐stock pages open a door into one of the hottest restaurants in the world right now." – Time Out New York

"Beautiful and enlightening. . . [Nilsson] has grown into a fine and even inspiring writer." – Jeffrey Steingarten, VOGUE

"I want to go there." – Fine Cooking

GQ Magazine’s Cookbook of the Year 2012

"The book contains dozens of recipes, as well as Nilsson’s fascinating and incisive musing on food." – Departures

"Nilsson is routinely counted among the world's greatest chefs." – TIME Magazine

"At Fäviken Magasinet, the food is cutting‐edge and hyper‐local. But the Swedish restaurant’s new cookbook is full of practical tips." – The Wall Street Journal

"The 28‐year old chef Magnus Nilsson contrasts the sweet simplicity of foraged and farm‐fresh ingredients with a kind of Viking bloodlust." – The New York Times

"The year’s most talked about restaurant‐based cookbook. . . a stunner." – Minneapolis Star‐Tribune
