F12, Stockholm – May 7, 2012, 9-course 1125 sek
F12 serves Nordic style food. It is located at 12 Fredgatan, therefore, taking its cue as the restaurant’s name. It is beautifully decorated with both classic and contemporary furniture and furnishings. We all had the tasting menu.
It started with Amuse Bouche. Some varieties of fresh vegetables with different coloring were in a glass jar. The fresh vegetables were paired with dill dip in the bowl, a typical Nordic style.
8th course - “Charcoal Grilled Milk-Fed Lamb & Morrels – with Spring Vegetables and Espelette Pepper.” Lamb was from the Pyrenees’ region of France. When I visited the Rhone Valley region of France last year, I was told lambs from the Pyrenees’ are tasty because lambs were fed with slightly salty grass. F12’s kitchen must have forgotten about the special feature of Pyrenees’s lambs. It was another salty dish.
