Noma
noma.dk/
Refshalevej 96, 1432 København
Fine dining at its best with local ingredients. With the opening of Noma 2.0, René Redzepi has had a goal for the eye: rediscover the Nordic commodities and blow the framework for own knowledge. The year is divided into three seasons. In the winter, the kitchen sees the sea and serves a menu that exclusively caters for seafood. When spring and summer indicate their typical late arrival in June, it means that the menu takes a vegetarian turn. And when the time for vegetables and fruits eventually ends, it’s the wild and forest treasury that takes over.

VN View

  • Reaping the rewards from one hour of mackerel fishing 🐟 summertime in Larvik, on Norway’s southern coast 🇳🇴
  • Wax broth with flower petals and pollen served in a beeswax bowl on last summer’s vegetable menu at @Nomacph 🐝This honey-sweet dish was the absolute bee’s knees!
  • The art of matpakke, the packed lunch of Norway! Matpakke is a Norwegian tradition that literally means “packed food” and is usually made up of bread, meats, cheese, and jams to spread, plus a few other snacks. ⠀
⠀
If you want to order a matpakke in Norway - @Lunsjkollektivet have some creative and tasty options!
  • Cod from Høvåg in the south of Norway, ready to become ceviche with a little help from tons of lime and lemon juice, tomato juice, cilantro and spring onion🍈🍋🍅🌱
  • A chip of dried caramelized scallop, topped off with an emulsion of the roe, a tartare of the muscle and lots of sour wood sorrel from @kontrast_oslo 🌊
  • The last meal of a capercaillie, one of the big game birds in the Nordics. This one was snacking on blueberries, pine needles, and some fallen leaves when his day ended quickly at Finnskogen in the eastern part of Norway last fall 🦃
  • @askanyc in Brooklyn is one of the best introductions to Nordic food for Americans looking to find a taste of Scandinavia in the states. Here, we have the inner shavings of bright green asparagus with *fantastisk* Finnish caviar from Karelia, sitting in a sauce made from fermented asparagus juice and whey from last summer's menu🌱
  • Dairy products are an essential pillar of Nordic cooking, and this creamy, luxurious cultured butter at @askanyc proves why🐮
  • Lompe, a traditional Norwegian flatbread, served with fermented trout and horseradish at @maaemo in Oslo 🇧🇻
