Jukkasjärvi Archives - Tareq Taylor's Nordic Cookery


Minus 30 degrees Celsius? No problem!

As the production for Series 1 of TAREQ TAYLOR’S NORDIC COOKERY comes to an end, we shot one of our last episodes in and around Kiruna, a town in the very far northern part of Sweden. Tareq paid a visit to the Icehotel in Jukkasjärvi on the last day of the shoot as the temperatures in the morning dropped down to -30C (-22F), but inside the Icehotel buildings, the temperature was a balmy -5C. Despite the extremes outside, Tareq managed to cook among Sweden’s mountain ranges – not once, but twice.
