You’ve gotta get to Skåne — for the food, according to The New York Times
Skåne lands 9th place in The New York Times list “52 places to go in 2016"
The New York Times names Skåne as a top place to go in 2016, according to their "52 places to go" list. Mexico City heads the list, and the top 10 also include Bordeaux, Malta, Coral Bay, North Dakota, Mozambique, Toronto, Abu Dhabi, and Viñales, Cuba in 10th place.
Rural Skåne is where it's at
According to The New York Times, rural Skåne is where it's at: "Almost mythologically Swedish — all unadulterated coastline, mushroom-filled forests and red wooden houses". And it's the food that takes the cake: "Some of the Nordic region's most interesting food is being cooked not in Copenhagen but across the Oresund Bridge, in the Swedish region of Skane."
"Nordic cuisine's next big thing"
The article names Malmö restaurants Bastard and Bord 13 as terrific casual places to check out, as well as country-side restaurants, Horte Brygga, Talldungen, and the prized Daniel Berlin Krog, which opens for 2016 reservations today.
Stefan Johansson, Managing Director of Invest in Skåne, says that the list doesn't surprise him one bit "Skåne is the place to be, we've got the best of both worlds here: bustling cities to picturesque country towns and villages. We also have a young, diverse population with a strong appetite for technology... and, of course, delicious food."
Johansson knows the cuisine isn't the only next big thing from Skåne. Malmö, Sweden's third largest city, was named the world's 4th most inventive city according to Forbes. There is a growing digital games industry, booming film industry highlighted by the world-famous TV series, Bron, not to mention, the upcoming, state-of-the-art, research facilities Max IV Lab and ESS which will form one of the foremost materials science research hubs in the world when completed
