Niclas Robertsson, Pio Country Club in Sweden
Top chefs and restaurants around the world demand top quality products. That makes us really happy. Gourmet restaurants Abacus and Jaspers in Dallas, the Johannesburg University in South Africa, Pio Country Club in Sweden and many, many more have chosen to use Falksalt sea salt flakes to enhance the meals they serve. And why shouldn’t they? Our large, crispy and tasty flakes, handmade from pure Mediterranean sea water are probably the best finishing salt in the world.
Håkan Thörnström owns and runs Thörnströms Kök (Thörnströms Kitchen) in Gothenburg, Sweden since 1997 and has been rewarded with a star in Guide Michelin.
When Håkan was 15 years old he went to Walter Ceder at the Park Avenue Hotel in Gothenburg asking if he could work in their kitchen during the summer – for free. He said yes, and Håkan did such a good job that the chefs, by the end of the summer, had rattled up a small wage as encouragement. Five years later, Håkan was the youngest member of the Swedish Culinary Team.
