Aamanns 1921 proudly welcomes Fredrik Berselius of Aska in New York for a special day of cooking.
On August 28th and 29th, Fredrik Berselius of two-starred Michelin restaurant Aska in New York City will partake a collaborative dinner at Aamanns 1921 during Copenhagen Cooking & Food Festival, as a part of Fredrik’s cookbook tour “Aska” (Swedish for “ashes”). Exclusively, 40 seats are for sale each evening for an exceptional 8 course dinner and a signed edition of Fredrik Berselius’ cookbook.
Fredrik Berselius was born and raised in Stockholm, Sweden, but has spent most of his culinary career in New York, working his way through some of the city’s best kitchens. The first incarnation of Aska (Swedish for “ashes”) was found inside the Kinfolk Studios in Williamsburg in 2012. He quickly gained a following for his risk-taking, highly creative style of cooking and within less than a year he earned his first Michelin star. In 2014 Fredrik closed the restaurant to enable a move to a different site. He finally reopened in summer 2016 and within six months was awarded two Michelin stars - the only new restaurant to receive the honour in the guide that year.
Fredrik Berselius’ dishes are inspired by nature, memories and the changing seasons which is shown beautifully in his debut cookbook which follows Fredrik’s culinary journey from Scandinavia to Brooklyn, highlighting flavours and techniques cultivated from these regions and interwoven to create the unique dishes that have won him so many awards and fans.
Aamanns 1921 is led by the King of Smørrebrød and TV-host Adam Aamann. Together with Head Chef, Maxim Surdu, they have previously hosted Japanese Hideaki Sato of two-starred Michelin restaurant Ta Vie in Hong Kong, who likewise cooked at Aamanns’ beautiful new restaurant during Copenhagen Cooking in 2017.
Fredrik Berselius and Maxim Surdu will each serve four courses as well as appetizers representing their individual techniques and flavours.
Do not miss out on this extraordinary opportunity to encounter the Swedish culinary artisan from New York, Fredrik Berselius.
