Kim joins Chef & Sommelier as Head Chef !
Kim Mikkola is my first head chef ! I have had sous chefs and chefs de partie before, but now with the 6th birthday of Chef & Sommelier so close, I feel that i want to turn a page in our book.
We co-create and run Chef & Sommelier, the gardening, the foraging and all the preserving projects, already creating amazing results !
Kim has been sous chef at Noma for several years, before that he has been working at OLO (*) here in Helsinki and with Markus Aremo at restaurant Carma (*).
Energetic and charismatic, he comes from small kitchens and understands my philosophy very well.
New menu starts on October 4th !
We change our first menu together with Kim on October 4th.
We are going to make true of 2 my dreams :
1/ We start focusing even more into Finland with the produce we use, going to aim for 99% for the end of December and we have a lot of finnish traditions in mind that we want to start honoring more than before
2/ Our own projects of making vinegars, salts etc will create even more of a unique flavor difference.
