Freddy and Victor are the two chefs who work in our kitchen. They are creative and have also recently worked in one of Umeås best restaurants. Both of them have studied gastronomy at Umeå University, as well as both have experience from working at many different restaurants. It’s their foodphilosophy and creativity that together shapes the restaurant Wild River.
Their inspiration is the beauty of the area, its culinary traditions, and the primary products that the hinterland of Västerbotten offers. It makes sense for these two chefs to cooperate with local farmers and the pantry nature creates on its own. The food is adjusted according to season to highlight the products best properties. Joy, passion and love is part of their way of working, and that is something we hope will show on the plate.
If you would ask them about what they want to offer, they would simply answer: It should be goffigt och gott! Which in translation means, kind of, that it should be rich, robust and tasty.
