Scandic to launch Jamie’s Italian in Stockholm

Eight-week intensive training process for Swedish team

The first Jamie’s Italian in the Nordic countries will open next week at Scandic Anglais in Stockholm.

For eight weeks the Swedish team have been trained in ingredients, recipes, service culture and leadership at Jamie’s Italian restaurants in London and Cambridge. The aim was for the team to be able to run the restaurant at Scandic Anglais in line with “Jamie’s food philosophy”. One of the guiding lights throughout the training process was Gennaro Contaldo, Oliver’s own mentor when the chef himself was only 15.

“Everything served at Jamie’s Italian undergoes strict checks to guarantee quality and sustainability, and this also goes for the team who are trained in Jamie Oliver’s food philosophy and view of service. There’s no cutting corners and you need 100% understanding of everyone’s roles in the restaurant. This is an approach that’s close to our hearts here at Scandic too,” said Ulrika Garbrant, Scandic’s vice-president food & beverage.
