Renowned Swedish Chef Mathias Dahlgren is inviting guests into the kitchen of his fine dining Matsalen restaurant at The Grand Hôtel, Stockholm, so they can see the creative process behind their Michelin-starred evening.

With Matsalen (The Dining Room) celebrating its fifth year with two Michelin stars, diners will now enter the restaurant via the kitchen to see the cooking process. They’ll be served small dishes of fresh seasonal produce while chatting to the chefs, before being seated in the restaurant.

Mathias Dahlgren said:

“With Stockholm’s vibrant restaurant and food scene changing all the time, today’s guests are more inquisitive and want a holistic dining experience where they can also learn about the food they are eating.

“Opening the kitchen up for our visitors allows them to see into the heart of the restaurant and feel part of the creative process. We want to meet the desire we see in people for greater insight into the actual creation of the dining experience – from kitchen to plate.”

New technologies and innovations in the Matsalen kitchen mean more flexible and mobile working, while a state-of-the art grill allows cooking with the naked flame, in keeping with Chef Dahlgren’s philosophy of natural cuisine.
