Rene Redzepi is head chef and owner of Noma restaurant in Copenhagen, where he creates his inventive take on Nordic cuisine with a distinctive emphasis on regional specialities. He is widely recognized as one of the worlds most influential chefs."
"Noma is the most important cookbook of the year." The Wall Street Journal
Rene Redzepi has been widely credited with re‐inventing Nordic cuisine. His Copenhagen restaurant, Noma, was recognized as the #1 best in the world by the San Pellegrino Worlds 50 Best Restaurant awards in April 2010 after receiving the "Chefs Choice" award in 2009. Redzepi operates at the cutting edge of gourmet cuisine, combining an unrelenting creativity and a remarkable level of craftsmanship with an inimitable and innate knowledge of the produce of his Nordic terroir. At Noma, which Redzepi created from a derelict eighteenth‐century warehouse in 2003 after previously working at both elBulli and The French Laundry, diners are served exquisite concoctions, such asNewly‐Ploughed Potato Field or The Snowman from Jukkasjarvi, all painstakingly constructed to express their amazing array of Nordic ingredients. His search for ingredients involves foraging amongst local fields for wild produce, sourcing horse‐mussels from the Faroe Islands and the purest possible water from Greenland. Redzepi has heightened the culinary philosophy of seasonally and regionally sourced sustainable ingredients to an unprecedented level, and in doing so has created an utterly delicious cuisine. At the age of 37, Redzepi is one of the most influential chefs in the world.
Noma: Time and Place in Nordic Cuisine offers an exclusive insight into the food, philosophy and creativity of Rene Redzepi. It reveals the first behind the scenes look at the restaurant, Noma, and features over 90 recipes as well as excerpts from Redzepis diary from the period leading up to the opening of the restaurant and texts on some the most enigmatic of Nomas suppliers. The book includes 200 new specially commissioned color photographs of the dishes, unique local ingredients and landscapes from across the Nordic region. It also includes a foreword by the artist Olafur Eliasson.
