How do the Northern Lights taste? Björn Ylipää will take us to a memorable trip to the world of tastes.

Björn Ylipää is the establisher and creative director of the company “Måltidsvision” (informal translation: Food Visions). He is also a gastronomy teacher at Kristianstad High School. Previous woodcuttter, blues singer and pizza baker left Tornio Valley to face new challenges in Southern Sweden. His later food related studies were a cultural shock to him, but also ignited a spark to communicate with the help of food in new ways.  Björn has an ability to touch and inspire people by experience, creativity and science.

The further topics of the workshop are development of food tourism, local food culture, storytelling for food handicrafts and multisense marketing.

How does your brand taste?

The workshop is aimed specifically tourism businesses and restaurants wishing to get inspiration of Storytelling by Food and Whitefish.
