Stockholm, Sweden

Jul 2014

Stockholm, Östermalm, 8pm, 6 June 2014. An intimate room with tables dressed in white linen, copper furniture with emerald blue glass and an open plan kitchen. Past the bar you can see two bouquets of wild flowers. Young guys and girls wearing chocolate brown aprons disappear behind the glass, looking for a plate in a cloud of vapour, then they take flowers from the bouquets, cut brown bread and slice a piece of toma cheese with herbs, put it on a plate and hide it under a lid. Their movements are a display of fine elegance. They come to the table and lovingly explain every dish on the menu. We tuck our teeth into crunchy crisps that transport us to paths covered in leaves in autumn. At the end of this culinary journey we are not in Stockholm anymore and it’s not 11pm on 6 June 2014. We are elsewhere, in a different time that, outside these walls, has not arrived yet.
