Chef's Bio

Hakan Thörnström

Chef-Owner of Thörnströms kök, Sweden

It is no mean feat to be bestowed the opportunity to create a Nobel ceremony dinner, much less, cook for Sweden’s Royal family. But for Chef Hakan Thörnström, he has done it all.


An advocate to the concept of healthy cooking and eating, he finds inspiration by going back to his roots and constantly developing his modern Scandinavian cooking.


Heading the prominent Michelin starred fixture in Göteborg – Thörnströms Kök, Chef Hakan’s creations are a testament to his Scandinavian and Swedish heritage. With touches of European influences and focus on seasonality, it is little wonder why his food fosters a feeling of balance and sustenance.
