An Interview with Marianna, our Executive Chef

When did you start at the Lodge?
In early winter 2019.

What is your speciality?
It's working with all the wonderful local fresh ingredients and being able to bring out the best flavours with the plants, herbs and berries that I enjoy foraging from our natural surroundings.

Would you say it is an international cuisine?
It's fusion cusine. Our products like fish, reindeer and lamb are local and the purest you can find, so I enjoy showcasing their natureal state but of course flavours are essential and by using the natural herbs found here it's really a chef's dream to work like this.

Do you also prepare vegan and vegetarian meals?
Yes. Guests usually tell me their preferences in a booking form. So I know when they are coming and can prepare in advance. 

What do you do when not in the kitchen?
I enjoy to be outside on an adventure with friends and my dog, but I'm often foraging for seaweed, herbs, plants, mushrooms and of course berries depending on the season.

What is your favourite dish you like cooking?
Every meal is an adventure and when the guests smile, that was of course my favourite dish!

Do you also have recommendations for wine?
We certainly do, we have a fine selection of wines that complement our dishes. I'll leave these decisions up to the hosts as I'm rather busy creating in the kitchen!

When you think about other chefs, what do you think makes your kitchen/ your cooking special?
I have a passion for sourcing natural ingredients grown in the purest way. There is so much growing outside in the Arctic right that naturally compliments the food in the most extraordinary way. Our kitchen is different because unlike a city we are surrounded by natural resourses outside our door.
