with Chef Fredrik Berselius in New York
Aska, the one Michelin star restaurant in Williamsburg, New York, represents the old and new. Endings and beginnings. The philosophy: respect for nature, creativity and dedication all reflect the approach of Chef Fredrik Berselius. Frederik’s approach to cooking focuses on using the best possible, not to mention handpicked and local ingredients and takes inspiration from the Brooklyn’s oozing creativity. They hand-pick most of the produce served at the restaurant and use humanely-raised animals, sustainable seafood and work with local farms. They cook with equal parts forward thinking and nostalgia. At the 24-seat restaurant in the back of Kinfolk Studios in Brooklyn’s Williamsburg neighborhood, there’s a good chance you may eat something that he found growing around the corner. Meet Fredrik and hear him talk about what it takes to become a great chef.
