Savor the Flavors of Scandinavia at the Westin

| May 26, 2014
Taste, a modern international dining restaurant at The Westin Grande Sukhumvit, Bangkok, will once again keep Bangkok abreast of leading-edge cuisine when it hosts one of Sweden’s top chefs to present classic and contemporary Scandinavian dishes from June 6th – 15th, 2014.

The culinary mastermind, 40-year-old Mathias Olsson, Executive Chef from Sheraton Hua Hin Resort and Spa arrives at Taste via executive chef stints and staging Scandinavian food festivals in several countries.

Today’s Scandinavian chefs are notable foragers, bakers and preservers. From sweet berries to free-ranging game and cured fish, the cuisine emphasizes wild, natural ingredients – making it a perfect fit with The Westin ethos of healthy indulgence.

Mathias and the Taste team will present the pick of the flavors and textures with each ingredient specially selected for freshness and authenticity at Taste.


On the ice bar Löjrom (whitebait roe with condiments) and hot smoked salmon. Next to it Västerbotten cheese, Swedish crisp bread and Smorrebrod canapées and Janssons Frestelse. Highlight main menus include Cauliflower Velouté (Hokkaido Scallop and Truffle Cream with a flavor of cauliflower), Grandmother Greta’s Meatballs (cream sauce with Lingon berries and pickled cucumbers), and Oxroulader (braised beef roulades with Gherkins mustard and bacon). Desserts range from Rhubard, Parfait with Cloudberry to Budapest Bakelse, all of which are equally irresistible.
