Magnus came into the spotlight as the innovative head chef at Fäviken — the progressive 24 seat restaurant in the Swedish countryside that drew international acclaim before closing in December 2019. His book, Faviken 4015 Days, Beginning to End, covers the lifespan of one of the world's most memorable flavour experiences, combining Magnus' frank, insightful reflections on food and the hospitality industry alongside all the recipes that came out of Fäviken.

Today, he's breaking new ground as Academy Director at MAD, where he equips chefs with the skills and resources to make more informed choices and enact positive change. The conversation starts at Axelstorps fruktodling, the fruit orchard where Magnus and his wife nurture 28 varieties of apple tree, 12 of pear and the incredibly rare Black Star Cherries.
