The PRODUCE of CARBON
VÄNERN ROM - SPIKENS FÄRJELÄGER
Vänern roe is a fantastic product.
A beloved product in Sweden for generations. We went with a fisherman from Spiken's ferry camp to join us in fishing, squeezing and salting our own bay. Hard work and great respect for these fishermen, but, it is outstanding what little one refines the product before it ends up on the plate. One of our purest products, with only salt as an additive.

PLATES WITH DIMENSIONS
We are fans of Mia at Västergården. Having her beautiful plates is a key element for us. We went to them at Gothenburg harborand tried out her craft. Even though she sais it is not art, we surely see it as just that.

Lobster | King of Swedish shell fish
With a small fast boat, we left the marina out in Långedrag to pull up some lobster traps. Gothenburg's archipelago is really beautiful. Scandinavian, rugged, barren but still so rewarding.
Swedish seafood is the best in the world. No doubt about that.
One of the best cheese on the Planet
We have been at the beautiful Almnäs Bruk twice now. It is a privilege to be here and to see the passion behind their famous cheeses.
QUINTA DO VALLADO
Friendship & 1 bottle of port wine
Hear the story of how friendship resulted in a trip to the Douro Valley and the creation of Carbon's own port wine. Quinta do Vallado produces beautiful unique wines in a fantastic environment that makes time to stay for a while. Incredible wine-making has been passed down here through generations.
The tradition of gently refining grapes in the Douro Valley has been here for a really long time
Carbon loves Vallado
Foraging mushrooms in Swedish autumn is our favorite activity! Here you can get a little of the feeling of cooking it on site, one of the better things in life! That feeling we are able to translate inside Carbon between September and December, definitely a must to visit the restaurant on that period!
Swedish westcoast is famous for it’s seafood quality. Of course we take advantage of it and pay extra attention to where and when to get the best supplies! So next time you come to Carbon remember that someone had to wake up at 5:00am to get you the freshest catch!
