Scallop with Björn's Smoked Salt
Scallop with Björn's Smoked Salt
Scallop, Jerusalem artichoke, dill oil, cucumber, and "ashes." Björn's smoked salt made an appearance here: the sea salt is smoked for hours with a combination of woods until it turns a dark red-brown. It played well with the "ashes" (a charred stick of leek).
Crayfish Quenelles
Crayfish Quenelles
Crayfish quenelles with spinach, crayfish oil, Västerbotten cheese, and spelt. Björn caught these crayfish by hand last time he was in Sweden, then formed them into quenelles. He cooked the Västerbotten cheese, a traditional Swedish cheese, into a salty, crunchy cheese chip.

Venison with Swedish dumplings, pickled pumpkin, berries, jus
The sourness of Bjorn's home-pickled pumpkin provided a tart contrast to the tender, rich venison.
Apple Terrine
Apple Terrine
Apple terrine and parfait with caramel, hazelnuts, and blackberries. Just before serving, Björn grilled the spongecake-like terrine, providing a nice crispy edge.
