This episode takes place in an amazing Michelin star gem of Helsinki, Ora. This restaurant by Sasu Laukkonen and his super talented team is changing the way restaurants work, to a lot better, I should say.
Mårten Janson joins me in this episode to have a conversation about how boards and companies work (or should work). Mårten has an impressive CV in building companies and now he runs a small scale VC with high-level hands-on involvement called “No Asshole Company”.
Ora, the restaurant is ranked at 9th position of the Top 50 list, … but I do want to say that this belongs far higher up. Maybe it was because of the new concept, but this is top 3 restaurant for me. Now the new concept? Felt like being in a concert or show: the food was served one course at a time, to everyone at once and Sasu went through them all. After 14 courses or so of pure perfection and great stories, I was sold.
I can’t really go to the details, but the symphony on your palette was just heartwarming. Really really good experience, even if we never anticipated to be sitting there for 4 hours and 30 minutes.
This is highly recommended for anyone who wants more than food when going out to dine. Definitely an experience to repeat.
You’ll also hear a quick comment between each meal from Sasu during the podcast episode.
