Miami chefs dine on Nordic cuisine at Art Basel


Chef Fredrik Berselius is cooking in Wynwood for Art Basel, dishing out his Nordic-inspired food in a collaboration with Volvo and Bon Appetit magazine that also includes the work of multimedia artist Chris Doyle. 

Berselius served a three-course meal Wednesday at MAPS Backlot, 342 NW 24th St., that included black potatoes cooked in butterfat, squab, and a dessert of tart and sorbet with dried mushroom, blueberry and spruce. 

Invited guests at dinner included Miami chefs Michael Schwartz and Ingrid Hoffmann, plus former "Top Chef" contestants Dale Talde (who recently opened his Talde restaurant in Miami Beach) and the couple Jeff McInnis and Janine Booth (opening two Miami Beach restaurants next year), who sat with Dolce Italian's Paolo Dorigato (winner of BravoTV's recent "Best New Restaurant").

Berselius and Doyle are back at it Thursday, presenting their food and art to a larger crowd at MAPS starting at 4:30 p.m.
