Frida wants

To create sustainability from the inside, not just from a perspective of consumption but also when it comes to the products. How do we actually take care of the food, and how do we reach its real flavours? That is what the main focus of a chef’s daily work is all about. 

Current event – Stjärnorna på slottet on SVT1

Frida takes over as chef in Stjärnorna på slottet!
At the end of December, the first episode of the new season of Stjärnorna på slottet will be shown on SVT1.
I am incredibly happy for the trust of SVT1 to take over as the new chef in the program after Tareq Taylor, it is of course big shoes to fill but such a fun and exciting assignment to get.

Frida works with

Restaurang TAK Oslo

In the new Oslo hotel, Sommerro is now TAK Oslo just opened. The restaurant in Oslo has the same concept as in Stockholm with Nordic-Japanese gastronomy. The dishes show unique combinations with Norwegian and Japanese cuisine, where I am inspired by unique Norwegian ingredients such as dried cod, bokna fish, seaweed & brown cheese.

The restaurant has 2 floors on the roof of the hotel, on floor 7 we have the Izakaya bar and terrace and floor 8 the main restaurant TAK. You have a view of the whole of Oslo and the Oslofjord from both restaurants and I promise that this is the place to be right now.

I would like to wish you a warm welcome to our sister restaurant TAK in Oslo

New Partner  – Kobb

I have long wanted to find a cooperation partner regarding the development of products with seaweed because this fantastic raw material has been close to my heart for many years in my work with Nordic Japanese gastronomy. KOBB’s philosophy is completely in line with my values ​​about sustainability and the sea. Being able to take part in developing products with seaweed in the future will be very exciting.

I work with Japanese knives from Yaxell. The brand has its origins in Seki, the knife-center of Japan. Extreme sharpness in combination with Damascus-steel makes them very popular. And my life as a chef a lot easier and sharper.
