Magnus Nilsson

At the end of 2019 the critically acclaimed chef, Magnus Nilsson decided to close his highly respected and much-loved restaurant, Fäviken, at the height of its success. In his latest book, Fäviken: 4015 Days, Beginning to End, Nilsson shares the Fäviken story––candid, insightful, and thought-provoking, it is an ode to the extraordinary restaurant and provides a fascinating first-hand account of the restaurant’s evolution.

Le Cordon Bleu and Phaidon are pleased to welcome Nilsson for an exclusive guest chef event. Join the influential chef in conversation with Joe Warwick, London-based food writer and critic who started the World's 50 Best Restaurant Awards, and learn more about what it was like to run a restaurant like Fäviken, as well as all the lessons he learned along the way––from virtual obscurity to the bright lights of the world stage.

The programme will include a live audience Q&A
