Culinary connoisseurs take note, two of the world's best chefs will be in town over the coming months.

The American Swedish Institute will be opening its doors to Scandinavia-based cooking marvels René Redzepi and Magnus Nilsson in separate, ticketed events in October and November.

If you haven't heard of them before, these guys are big deals.

Redzepi is the chef and co-founder of Noma in Copenhagen, which has been named the world's best restaurant on four occasions, in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2014, while finishing third in 2015.

He will be at the American Swedish Institute on Park Avenue on Friday, Oct. 19 at 6:30 p.m., when he will talk about his new book, The Noma Guide to Fermentation.

He will be joined by David Zilber, the Canadian chef who been the director of Noma's fermentation lab since 2016. Tickets for the event cost $48.

A few weeks later, the Institute will welcome Magnus Nilsson, who is making his second appearance at the center to talk about his latest work, The Nordic Baking Book.

But there's more, he and 10-15 regional, award-winning pastry chefs and bakers will also create an original recipe each that ticket holders will be able to sample.
