For one night only: Aquavit x Oaxen Krog present the ultimate Nordic feast

SEEN has always admired Aquavit, from the unique Nordic cuisine to the art on the walls, it’s a lovely place to dine. On March 13th some lucky Londoners will be partaking of a Michelin-starred feast courtesy of Aquavit’s executive chef Henrik Ritzén and Magnus Ek, head chef of Stockholm’s Oaxen Krog.

A taste of Sweden will be brought to the capital. Oaxen Krog, for twenty years a staple on the Stockholm dining scene, features the freshest ingredients taken from the restaurant’s own farm or from nearby areas, with an emphasis on sustainability.

Diners will sample innovative dishes created by Magnus Ek in the form of a six-course menu:

Bread and smoked cod’s roe butter
Scallop, cep, truffle seaweed
Veal tartar, cauliflower, dill
Cabbage, kale, potato miso, hazelnut, soured Jerusalem artichoke cream
Smoked eel, crab apple, lovage
Duck, chanterelles, forest capers, celeriac, spruce cream
Yorkshire rhubarb, Swedish curd cheesecake, almond ice cream

The menu will be £95 including service charge, with wine pairing for £55.

“I have always admired Magnus’s philosophy and creativity, so I look forward to collaborating with him on this special menu,” Henrik Ritzén commented. “It is a rare occasion to be able to work with such a renowned chef, not just in Sweden but across the world, and I welcome him and his unique ideas to Aquavit”.

Magnus Ek said, “It is a great honour to be invited to London for this unique
collaboration with such a respected chef. Our combined love for high-quality,
seasonal ingredients has lead to the creation of some delicious dishes, which we look forward to sharing with Aquavit’s diners.”
