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 – People of the north

A TV series produced by Tellus Works where I, together with Arne Hjeltnes and Stig Bareksten, meet people who live in the North. We experience exciting travel destinations, food culture and talk to interesting people. The first season has focused on Northern Norway and the second season is now being planned. The purpose of the series is to highlight and convey new places to travel to in our fantastic Nordic region for more sustainable travel. The series will be shown on various tv-channels around the world.

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

MSC ambassador – Sweden

To be able to make the right choices when cooking, I need to know the products origin, that the fish is caught in a sustainable way. Certifications like MSC makes my life as a chef easier and it makes a big difference. Just to choose a certification that you believe in can inspire people to make a difference.

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.
