Cooking with Lundqvist

A week ago, I spent some time with Henrik Lundqvist, the Swedish hockey goalie for the New York Rangers.  We spent some time hanging out and doing a little home cooking as we reminisced about Sweden.

Always a front runner for the Vezina Trophy, the award for best goalie in the NHL, Henrik ended up number one in the league for shutouts in the 2010-2011 season.  He finished 5th in the league for number of saves, and though he wears a goalie mask, he has become the face of the New York Rangers.

Our get-together is part of a series in Gourmet Sweden magazine that shows well-known Swedish artists and athletes improving their cooking skills with the help of famous chefs.  For this, I got the pleasure of spending time with arguably the best hockey goalie in the NHL, Henrik Lundqvist, just doing what I love to do, cooking and sharing experiences.  Our story will be featured in the October issue of Gourmet Sweden.
