Åland – Västerro, Anders Westerberg

The love of the sea and it´s treasures

Västerro is a small paradise on Herrön, near Åland’s southernmost point. Anders Westerberg lives here, a creative fisherman and food craftsman who takes the sea into the smokehouse and has his very own way of conveying the love of the raw material. Here, almost anything can be flavored with embers and wood shavings, and in the farm’s fish restaurant you get to experience fish that you have never tasted before.

Anders is the fisherman who innovatively tries to make the most of the catch and with smoking as a cooking method challenges the traditional. A visit to Västerro is something out of the ordinary, the food is always served as a surprise and if it ends in a tasteful firework, it starts on plates specially designed to lift the raw material, the fish, in all its delicious parts. In Västerro you are invited to a great Food Experiences in Västerros’ gastronomic greenhouse. Samples from the smokehouse are served here and dinners are held on the theme “A sea of delicacies”, when Anders prepares and serves today’s variant of the Åland fish board. Both new and familiar flavors from the sea and nature are served here.
