Adam Dahlberg

Adam is 35 years old, born and raised in Stockholm, where he now owns and operates the Adam & Albin Foodstudio. He has a history with Mathias Dahlgren, Bon Lloc and Norrlands Bar & Grill, all based in Stockholm. Adam represented Sweden in the 2012/13 Bocuse d'Or, the most prestigious competition for chefs in the world. The motto of my Bocuse d'Or entry and all my cooking is "The Purity of the Produce, The Richness of the Details". To me it means using the produce to its full potential and with the help of technology, knowledge and understanding of the produce, ensuring that taste is at its best. It is also about adding details to the best ingredients to enhance the experience and create contrasts, while giving priority to maintain the ingredient's natural character both in taste, texture and shape despite refining and combining with other flavours.

Paolo Basso

Before winning the European title he competed in the final of the World's Best Sommelier contest for three times in 2000, 2007 and 2010, getting very close to the title (second position in the mentioned editions).
