“The minute I set foot in the kitchen I knew – this was it!”
Sonny Tapper. Chef, AVEQIA Stockholm
Sonny Tapper was born in Malung in Dalarna, but he grew up in Uppsala. He enjoyed food and cooking throughout his youth, but fell seriously in love with food during his travels in South Korea. The whole experience was so different from life in Sweden, just walking around at night, music pumping, bright neon lights and crazy crowds everywhere. And the food, the food that’s so filled with character and depth! He says it was so foreign, the whole concept of food is so different to what we experience in Sweden with our Nordic palate. At the same time it all made sense for him, in South Korea food was about well being and caring.
As soon as I set foot in that kitchen I knew – this is it!”
“…you can never go wrong with truffles, you can have truffles on everything, it’s just a shame it’s so incredibly expensive!”
When we talk about cooking as teambuilding Sonnys response is that it is phenomenal! He says that the joy that’s created when you can discuss and share an experience is living proof that cooking food together is deeply rooted in us. He says; we’ve come a long way from the first campfires to 3 Michelin stars!
