    Alex Nietosvuori, Restaurant Hjem

    "This is food to make you beam with delighted surprise: an eel-like strip of mackerel, perhaps, the skin crisp, the flesh almost translucent, with a sparkling, sweet-sharp gel of gooseberry and a dollop of cool raw cream. Or glassy-crisp chicken skin sandwiching smoked cod’s head. ...It’s the sort of restaurant that makes me remember why I love this job, that makes me believe — against all evidence to the contrary — that everything is right with the world." Marina O'loughlin, The Times

    "This restaurant is a serious addition to Liverpool’s scene. It immediately takes its place in the top four in the city, and in my not-so-humble opinion, top thirty in the North West. It brings a bright, ingredients-led post ‘New British’ cooking that has a deftness of touch from a chef who knows how to wring out flavours", Confidentials
