The Heart Surgeon's Cookbook

A new way to exercise dexterity

Getinge is a medtech company. They provide devices to improve the clinical experience in connection with heart surgery. But still, they know that the most important tool in an operation room is the hands that use the devices.  

This cookbook is a tribute to those hands. And a new way to exercise dexterity.  

The Heart Surgeon’s Cookbook is based on a collaboration between heart surgeon Dr. Nirav Patel and Guide Michelin chef Fredrik Berselius. Together, they’ve developed nine recipes – all of which require great dexterity. It has been called the world’s most difficult cookbook. And that may well be close to the truth.

“We thought a collaboration between a heart surgeon and a chef, between surgery and food, would be a pretty interesting clash.”

Leo Dal, Creative at Forsman & Bodenfors Gothenburg
