Åland, Michael Björklund, Smakbyn

Alandian chef that is active both in Sweden and Finland. Has done cooking shows with local food as theme in all the Nordic countries, “Mat så in i Norden”. The unique about Michael is his commitment and ability to highlight the value in the simple and local in food culture, and make these gathered things to something great. His cooking has never been about the exceptional or fine dining, but instead about Nordic foods and food culture that touches us all and he has done so for a long time – long before the blooming of Nordic food as a trend. Michael has been co-author to a lot of Nordic cookbooks.
