Nordic Table Chef Series - Magnus Nilsson Talk & Book Signing

Sunday, November 4, 2018 - 3:30pm

Please note – time change! This event will take place at 3:30 p.m. 

Internationally acclaimed Swedish chef Magnus Nilsson is a leading authority on Nordic culinary culture. For his latest project, The Nordic Baking Book (Phaidon 2018), the follow-up to his bestselling The Nordic Cookbook, Nilsson traveled throughout his native region collecting more than 450 recipes from food experts, professional bakers, historians and local home cooks, to compile the definitive guide to Nordic baking.

ASI is pleased to welcome Nilsson to back Minneapolis for an exclusive engagement. Join us for an afternoon with the famed chef and learn about his journey creating this landmark volume – from researching modern and traditional dishes to photographing the landscapes, food and people that he encountered along the way. Multiple book titles will be available for purchase and signing.
