Stars du Nord is an annual gastronomic festival held each year in a Scandinavian city. The purpose of the festival is to promote the Nordic food concept on a global scale and give our master chefs, winemakers, and regions national and international visibility.

For the 2022 edition Stars du Nord has teamed up with Swedish Lapland, Treehotel and Arctic Bath to embark on a green evolution. For two evenings the unique forest of Lapland will be transformed into a transgressive wildwood restaurant – MATERIA as the northern countries’ most progressive star chefs from Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland, and Iceland join forces for a never-before collaboration. The challenge? Creating a 10-star Michelin tasting menu using ingredients sourced within a 200-kilometer radius prepared with our natural elements; fire, water, fermentation, and of course, imagination.
