12forward, an initiative by the White Guide
Covering the forefronts of gastronomy
With its global reach, the app and online forum 12forward aims to identify and highlight restaurants and initiatives that impact the future of gastronomy. Not only do we help our readers find the most enticing experiences, places and scenes where new directions are explored and evolution is happening in real time, we also give them in-depth stories to envision where gastronomy is heading.
In each featured city, we list twelve paragons of progressive gastronomy, ranging from fine dining restaurants to unpretentious bistros and hole-in-the-wall joints. The lists, compiled by local experts in the culinary arts, are continuously updated; new entries result in older ones getting knocked off. More cities are added continuously.
Increasingly, progressive gastronomy is also about health and sustainability. Currently, we see many brave initiatives that rethink various links in our food system, benefiting both people and planet. Yes, we cover that frontier too in engaging articles published both online (12fwd.com) and on the app (iPhone and Android).
12forward is a spin-off of the White Guide, the leading Nordic restaurant guide.
The 12forward editorial committee is chaired by White Guide Publisher Lars Peder Hedberg and includes Executive Editor Argot Murelius and Editor Per Styregård. Commercial relationships are handled by Peter Hansson.
