The inaugural MICHELIN Guide Estonia – the first Guide for the Baltic region – launched in May this year and featured 31 restaurants, including 2 Michelin Stars, 5 Bib Gourmands and 2 Michelin Green Stars.
But what inspires Estonian chefs in their search for culinary mastery? We hear from several of the forward-thinking chefs whose restaurants feature in the first MICHELIN Guide Estonia. They tell us about culinary traditions and classic recipes passed down through generations, as well as the importance of the seasons, foraging and fermentation in Estonian culture. Discover why now is an exciting time to be a chef in Estonia, as the country’s diverse cuisine finally gets the international recognition it deserves.
