Food traditions in contemporary clothing

Lofoten is based upon several hundreds of years old food traditions, where receipts and the knowledge of processing are carried on through generations. Today this is about taking care of the traditions which have given our ingredients world reputation.

As all other art forms cooking is based on measurements and proportions, and the fine balance between all senses. As our guest we want you to gain insight into our rich culture, if only a taste...

The writer Johan Bojer managed better than most to describe the conditions in Lofoten for than 100 years ago. These were strong and brutal depictions of the historical beginnings of the region: Fishing, survival and challenging weather conditions. We have sought to create a historical span from the age of when the bold fishermen challenged the sea to the modern cuisine and contemporary forms of expression.
