Eating the Gustavian Way

Apparently, the change brought the name of Sweden among the prestigious family of the French cuisine. As time goes by, the world of culinary found its way to evolution. Many dishes were basically introduced and different ways of preparation were practiced. Consequently, modern food establishments now provide a fusion of dishes from the old to the new centuries.

Indeed, the moment was fantastic when we were dining the Gustavian way.
