Scandinavia, Television, Chef Tina Nordstrom

Nov 1, 2005
2005 / November 2005

Tina Nordstrom is riding the wave of young Nordic chefs pushing the boundaries of Scandinavian cuisine. One of Sweden’s most famous culinary artists, Nordstrom is the host of Scandinavia’s most popular televised cooking program. She is also a best-selling cookbook author.

Nordstrom, who cites her parents as her biggest culinary influence, grew up working in the kitchen of her family’s country inn just outside the Swedish port city of Helsingborg. Like her peers on the world stage, Nordstrom developed a knack for complementing traditional Scandinavian cuisine with influences from other cultures.

JW Marriott Cancun Resort & Spa Review

Although much changed in the past year, Cancún still has the joie de vivre we need right now after months of cabin fever — even with safety measures in place. In fact, the first half of 2021 may be a good time to rediscover Mexico’s home-grown Caribbean resort town in a slower, more relaxed mode that contrasts its rollicking “spring break” reputation of old. One place to take in Cancún at its best is JW Marriott Cancun Resort & Spa, a mile up from the convergence of night clubs, chain restaurants, souvenir emporiums and shopping malls along Avenida Kukulkan.
