In Sydney. Yep, he was.
We had the opportunity to speak with Magnus about his books – The Nordic Cookbook and Faviken, both published by Phaidon Press – his restaurant, approach to food, photography… in a word, life. It was a very weird Sydney day. Dry heat, dusty wind, overcast, a southerly coming in — which conspired to cast an eerie, wan yellow light in the Elston Room at Carriageworks just as we sat down (in very comfy leather butterfly chairs from funkis) to talk.
Thank you Luisa Brimble for this beautiful portrait and also the images from the Magnus Nilsson: Food Stores event used on the home page.
