Mia Kristensen’s approach to New Nordic cuisine:
The world’s best restaurant, Noma in Copenhagen, has propelled new Nordic cuisine into the limelight. Chef René Redzepi’s innovative approach showcases the finest indigenous Nordic ingredients in fresh, light menus. Many of these ingredients also grow in Britain, or can be easily sourced. But with dishes such as edible soil (made from malt and hazelnuts), oyster porridge, veal and blackcurrant cookies, seabuckthorn leather with pickled elderflower, and chicken skin sandwich with lumpfish roe, this is not food most mere mortals can recreate at home.
Step in Mia Kristensen. Mia’s company CPH Good Food offers Nordic cuisine classes in Copenhagen to help home cooks translate the New Nordic movement into do-able, delicious and healthy home cooking. Culinary Anthropologist has teamed up with CPH Good Food to bring new Nordic cuisine and its innovative use of all things seasonal, wild, smoked and preserved to London.
“I am passionate about Nordic cuisine – its seasonality, lightness of ingredients and symbiotic relationship to nature. Nordic foods contain all five basic tastes and this makes it complete. Many ingredients are found in nature, which encourages wonderful family trips, cooking in nature and of course eating together,” says Mia Kristensen.
