Wild Pure Nordic


Warm regards from the Silja Symphony kitchen

Novelty! Chef Jonas Niklasson and his kitchen team at Silja Symphony's restaurant Bon Vivant have focused on Norrland cuisine for autumn and winter season. Norrland is the northern region of Sweden with lots of forest, rivers, mountains and national parks. Try something new on your next cruise to Helsinki or Stockholm - the menu will be served on board until 3 May 2022 and can be chosen as a set menu with a drink package.

Tastes from the north

– We sat down together with my kitchen team at Silja Symphony and talked about what Norrland brought to our minds in terms of food. It turned out to be “comfort food” such as moose, reindeer, char from cold waters, Västerbotten cheese and for me personally, the best of all - cloudberry, says Jonas.

Jonas Niklasson is careful to add something sour to the dishes. Lingonberry occurs of course, but also cranberry cloud for reindeer fillet. And cloudberry soup is served with white chocolate.

Halstrad rödingfile

Bon Vivant's new menu Västerbotten pays tribute to the flavors from northern Sweden. Pictured is broiled arctic char fillet, lingonberry muesli, stuffed potatoes & sour dill sauce.

Locally produced seasonal incredients

Gravad älgfile

Hernö Gin cured elk fillet, fried sweetbread, pickled chantarelle & spruce sprout emulsion.

– My hope is that our guests will leave the table with a feeling of warm nostalgia, says Jonas Niklasson.

The raw materials used in the menu are locally produced and from the season. A lot of love and heart has been put into the menu. Enjoy the flavors of Västerbotten menu and the splendid archipelago - your evening will be perfect!
