Thursday April 15th: Homage series: Rene Redzepi - Part 2
This Thursday we continue our homage series with another menu inspired by the food served at Noma, in Copenhagen. Our decision to make it a two part homage can be attributed to the importance of Nordic Cuisine at the forefront of a culinary landscape which has transcended unbridled molecular gastronomy. As we've stated before, the intense locality and seasonality of the terroir surrounding Noma cannot be reproduced here, and this is merely our humble attempt to learn by doing.
