Oskar’s Corner – A Seasonal Report from the Head Chef

Good afternoon members of the Futuraskolan community,

Happy Monday! What a lovely sunshiny autumn day it is.

It is a festive time of the year for us working in the food department. Preparing for next week’s Thanksgiving celebration, our Nobel Lunch on Monday December 10th and our annual “Julbord” served on Lucia Day, the 13th of December. We aim to provide a warm culinary experience for our fine students while celebrating our local and International traditions.

As always, working hard to find the right high quality produce and making the extra effort to work with distributors who represent the ethical values of Futuraskolan is a priority for us.

A great example of this is the pork meat and handmade sausages we buy from Svenska Gårdar. All of their meats are coming from farms prized for their animal welfare and the products are made without artificial additives.  This is important to us when we choose our purveyors as we aim to serve our students warm and healthy meals that also represent our core values.

Following these guidelines and ambitions, this season we will also be serving our students food that is:

Fresh:                 Never frozen, avoiding semi-finished products.

Swedish:           Local produce, aiming for short transport and low CO2 footprint.

Seasonal:          Produce in season are flavourful and are sold at the best possible price

Once our students have left us for the holidays, the head chefs and I will start writing the menu for the spring semester. Combining the wishes from our students from the Student Councils (Elevsråd) in the organization and adhering to the guidelines the authorities gives us, we aim to prepare student friendly, healthy choices for our fine students lunch experience.

You can find our menu at: https://skolmaten.se/futuraskolan-international/. And if you have questions or concerns about our processes please give me a mail or a call, or drop by my office at Erik Dahlbergsgatan for a coffee and a chat.

We are grateful for your efforts and support and are always eager to receive your feedback.

Have a fantastic weekend everyone and we wish you a warm and family orientated Holiday Season from all of us at Futuraskolan AB.
