Renowned Swedish chefs Paul Svensson and Anders Ramsay, strong proponents of sustainable organic cuisine, have been confirmed to host live demonstrations at this year’s sold out Nordic Organic Food Fair, taking place in Malmö, Sweden, on 26-27 October.
Now in its second year, the two day trade event, which sold out of all exhibition space last month, also boasts a packed Organic Theatre programme featuring sessions from IFOAM EU, KRAV Sweden, EkoMatCentrum, Fazer Food Services, Soil Association Certification, and Rolf-Axel Nordström, founder of Ängavallen.
Paul Svensson, a well-known face on Swedish TV, has over a decade of experience working in top restaurants, including the Michelin-starred F12 and Bon Lloc in Stockholm. In 2003, he represented his country in the world's most prestigious chef competition – the Bocuse d´Or, where he came in fifth place. After officially opening this year’s show at 10am on Sunday 26 October, Svensson will be giving visitors the opportunity to enjoy his culinary skills in a series of live cooking sessions on the Menigo stand (FC10).
Svensson will also be appearing in The Organic Theatre discussing ‘Mat i tiden och i framtiden’ (Food now and in the future) at 2pm on the show’s opening day.
Anders Ramsay will also be appearing on both days of the show (in association with The Vegan Society). He’ll be taking centre stage on the Biolab stand (FA02) promoting “tasty, deceptively simple” organic food “with lots of veg”. A chef with around 25 years of experience working in Sweden, Europe and the US, he was recently a finalist in The Vegetarian Chance competition, an event dedicated to vegetarian and vegan cuisine, in Milan, Italy.
