Create from Nothing

We are extremely happy to host michelin-starred chef Sasu Laukkonen from Finland at Edinburgh Food Studio for a three day winter event "Create from Nothing". From 1st to 3rd December, Sasu will be exploring Scottish ingredients with a Finnish twist.

Since his 17 years old Sasu has worked in kitchens all over. Sasu has internship experiences at Château Carsin in Bordeaux, Lux and F12 in Stockholm, and was head chef to La Petite Maison and Loft Restaurant & Lounge in Helsinki. A chef de Cuisine from the heart, Sasu Laukkonen opened his own restaurant called Chef & Sommelier ( in Helsinki in October 2010, and was awarded one michelin star in 2014. 

Sasu focuses on organic and wild produce, but also uses natural and ethically sourced ingredients. A lot of his produce is grown in the restaurant's garden and foraged from the Finnish countryside. His restaurant has brought two things to the Helsinki restaurant scene: supply to the organic dining demand and give people the experience of enjoying handmade cuisine in a relaxed atmosphere. 

Self-taught chef, Sasu's cuisine is ambitious, pure in taste, handmade, original, and cooked from the heart. Finesse-dining is what he wants guests to experience.

Dinner starts at 8pm, and guests are welcome from 7:30pm. The set menu costs £42, and an optional drinks pairing menu will be available for £35.
