This Three-Michelin-Starred Chef is Making Oslo's Best Cheese Sandwiches

How do you know that a city is becoming a foodie destination?

Well, for one, it starts focusing more on perfecting simple dishes and putting a gourmet spin to everyday staples—and less on overly complicated cuisine that tries too hard. It also starts attracting talent from all over the world. In Oslo’s case, Chicago-transplant chef Kim Asserson and MELT, the gourmet grilled cheese sandwich place in St. Hanshaugen, are a perfect example of the Norwegian capital’s booming culinary scene.
