"Fire has it's own language, spoken in the realm of heat, hunger and desire. 

It speaks of alchemy, mystery, and above all, possibility. 

It is a slumbering voice inside me

The ever-present beast within my soul

It is beyond words, beyond memory, 

It comes from a time long before I can recall."

 - Francis Mallmann


The Chef

Stefan’s interest in cooking began at an early age growing up in his native Sweden. Descended from a long line of gourmands and art lovers, he has a true passion for food and finds his creative outlet in the kitchen. Among family and friends he is often recruited to spontaneously chef at dinners and parties. His style integrates the European tradition and ceremony of entertaining with quintessential American hospitality. Among his favorite flavors are those sourced from the freshest ingredients of the Pacific Northwest.

"It was my great pleasure to be invited to a dinner party where Chef Stefan was exercising his great skills at preparing dinner. First of all, he couldn't have been more welcoming to his kitchen. It is obvious he loves food and wants others to do so as well. The evening was very special with delicious pizza coming from the pizza oven.  It was the best!! Thank you Stefan."
