Published by Phaidon, Fäviken: 4015 Days, Beginning to End is both, a cookbook of over 100 recipes as well as a story about the Fäviken restaurant by Swedish chef Magnus Nilsson. One of the best-known Nordic chefs, Nilsson has previously published the books The Nordic Cookbook and The Nordic Baking Book.
In 2019, Magnus Nilsson closed Fäviken, his one-of-a-kind restaurant in remote Sweden — a difficult decision, as it was close to his heart and at the height of its success. Here is the Fäviken story: how it became a world-class destination, how the industry it was a part of has changed, and why Magnus eventually elected to pursue new projects. His musings on topics from creative theory and sustainability to family and fame accompany 100+ memorable recipes from Magnus's remarkable Fäviken tenure.
