Garden to Table, Royal Style

Tucked away a few kilometres north of the Stockholm city centre is Ulriksdals Värdshus, an inn housed in an 1868 edifice built by Karl XV, King of Sweden and Norway. The wooden villa, which was originally built for the servants of the royal court, is part of the Ulriksdal Palace grounds.

This summer, restaurant Emmer revamped the distinguished inn, opting for a more casual approach to dining. Interior designer Lotta Agaton was commissioned to oversee the design, tasking KFK Snickerier to custom-build the interiors.

The kitchen takes full advantage of its location, surrounded by forests, sea and 1.5 hectares of cultivated land. The chefs and gardeners work closely together to create a modern Scandinavian menu based on what the season offers.
