Chef Niklas Ekstedt of Ekstedt Restaurant in Stockholm

published 7 years ago by Videos from The Culinary Institute of America

After a series of distinguished apprenticeships at El Bulli, The Fat Duck, and The French Laundry, Chef Niklas Ekstedt opened restaurants Niklas in Helsingborg, Sweden, and Ekstedt in Stockholm. At Ekstedt, he does all his cooking over an open fire pit using only cast-iron pots and tools. Enhancing the flavor of the oven's birch wood smoke, chef Ekstedt adds a finishing touch of hay to this dish of sweetbreads with corn and summer truffle. Find recipes at
