We are a bit slow on the uptake sometimes so apologies if this is old news but there appears to be a really cool chef in Denmark. René Redzepi’s restaurant Noma is the winner of this year’s San Pellegrino World’s 50 Best Restaurants. What’s exciting for us is his pure philosophy of using ingredients from his immediate locality and experiencing their growth in the wildness for his inspiration. There is a great video here of René explaining this.
Already inspired to redouble our efforts to understand local food we look forward to reading his book. In the meantime feast your eyes on his current dinner menu.
