Nordic Table Chef Series - Magnus Nilsson Talk & Book Signing

Sunday, November 4, 2018 - 3:30pm

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 back to Minneapolis for an exclusive speaking engagement. Join us for an afternoon with the famed chef and learn about his journey creating his landmark volumes – 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.

A limited number of tickets are still available for the earlier 11:30 All Over Fika event with Magnus and baked goods from some of the top pastry chefs in the region.
