For his latest project, The Nordic Baking Book the follow-up to his bestselling The Nordic CookbookNilsson traveled throughout his native region collecting more than 450 recipes from food experts, professional bakers, historians, and local home cooks — compiling the definitive guide to Nordic baking. George Brown College's Centre for Hospitality & Culinary Arts is pleased to welcome Nilsson to Toronto for an exclusive speaking engagement. Join us for an evening with the famed chef and learn about his journey creating this landmark volume - from researching modern and traditional dishes to photographing the landscapes, food, and people that he encountered along the way.

The Emmy Award-winning US PBS TV series Mind of a Chef and the Netflix documentary series Chef's Table have both featured him. He was awarded the White Guide Global Gastronomy Award in 2015, and he is the author of Fäviken, (2012), The Nordic Cookbook (2015) and Nordic: A Photographic Essay of Landscapes, Food and People (2016), which was also the subject of a traveling photography exhibition.
