Smoked cream “waldorf”

An incredible experience at @knystaforsen in Sweden, about two and a half hours in the car from Copenhagen. This house of fire and smoke in the Swedish woodlands has a touching story behind it. Chef @nicolaitram and his wife @evahtram have been on a long journey to reach this point in their lives where they seem to have found contentment in these woods with their family. Nicolai was a very successful chef excelling in both the classics and the new Nordic cuisine inspired by the avant-garde Spanish influences of the El Bulli group for whom he also worked. But the eventual realisation that, having opened his own successful and highly regarded Nordic bistro, this life was not fulfilling him and the love was not there while cooking in this environment, a change was in order.
A successful career in television followed involving projects like Masterchef Denmark. But good jobs, financial security and a home in Copenhagen still did not complete the puzzle and bring them the contentment and happiness that they were looking for.
They decided to purchase a property in the Swedish woodlands and what was once a weekend home has now morphed into a restaurant where Nicolai can finally cook with contagious joy and from the heart. He seems so happy to bring people into his home and cook a menu of incredibly tasty dishes that incorporate produce from the surrounding terroir, the river, the forest, and use fire and smoke in some way in every dish. The perfect marriage of ingredients touched by fire and served with incredible classical sauces results in one of the best meals that me and Hayley have ever had. We also stayed in one of their comfortable rooms and enjoyed a terrific breakfast in the morning. I cannot recommend this place highly enough
