The Talisker Skye pop-up restaurants
This summer, Talisker Skye will partner with Swedish chefs Joel Åhlin and Filip Fastén from Agrikultur. Together we will create a unique culinary experience in the middle of nature in both Sweden and Denmark. But only for one day, so make sure to book your seat at the table in time for this once in a lifetime experience!
Both chefs believe in going beyond the boundaries of culinary tradition and experiencing food in its true elements, while honoring food, flavor, sustainability and the community. Filip and Joel take great pride in making use of seasonal harvest and daily produce, and mixing it with exquisite technique. Their main element in cooking is fire.
As part of the Scandinavian Detours experience, Filip and Joel have developed a special menu, which combines their cooking philosophy with the inspiring wilderness and ocean that surrounds the Talisker distillery. Their menu is inspired by closeness to nature, and the ever-changing seasonal ingredients.

Prepare your own meal outdoors
Long hikes and exhilarating adventures outdoors can truly make a stomach grumble so always bare in mind to have energy with you along the way. An easy meal to prepare is actually broth; it will keep you warm and energized. Boil it on raw material of your liking whether it is meat or vegetables and keep in a thermos.
Preparing a meal outdoors can itself be an adventure, and fire is our best friend for a dinner in the wilderness – and to keep us warm.
First thing’s first; gather firewood. A good tip is to find logs that you can carve to thin sticks and use to start the fire with a bit of newspaper. Start off with smaller logs and make sure to create some space between them, this will make it easier to get the fire going. Place the paper in the middle so that the fire will spread outwards, and make sure to blow on it from under so that it catches. Once it catches on, you can continue with some larger logs. Don’t forget to bring matches and keep them dry on your hike. And always make sure choose your spot wisely and according to local legislation.
