Thinly sliced raw beef from Lövsta Kött outside Uppsala is served successfully with Jerusalem artichokes, Gruyère and intense, roasted hazelnuts. The flavour spectrum they create here often with the help of brown butter and sweetness is rounder and more approachable — without sacrificing exciting wild-picked, self-harvested or pickled ingredients. Underneath them hides a mushroom cream, charred pine needles, Jerusalem artichoke and bleak roe from Kalix. When a variation on Jerusalem artichokes, both puréed and raw, with apples and dark-roasted hazelnuts meets a delightful, elegantly oxidized sauvignon blanc from Alexandre Bain, the taste buds start spinning. Not even one roe remains. Bifångst is a small restaurant inside Fiskekrogen that offers a specially composed menu to 15 guests.
