One of the world’s best restaurants, 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', oyster porridge, and veal & blackcurrant cookies, 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 diet movement into do-able, delicious and healthy home cooking. Culinary Anthropologist has teamed up with CPH Good Food to offer some special classes to bring new Nordic cuisine to Anna’s home teaching kitchen in London.
This October we’re going to cook up a stunning autumnal lunch together, including making our own crispbreads,salmon rillettes, quick-pickles, apple bread andbuttermilk cheese – all techniques any home cook can master. Come along to make and then feast on:
Salmon rillettes with gin-pickled fennel on seeded crispbreads
Flowerpot apple sourdough with buttermilk cheese
Whole salt-baked celeriac with chervil & chive fluffy butter
Venison & juniper meatballs
Creamy rye with mustard, curly kale & mushrooms
Beetroot, plum & red onion pickle

This will be a hands-on class limited to 8 guests.

“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.
A student of Food Science, Mia will share her knowledge of the whys and wherefores of cooking during the class, providing an insight into the culinary magic of restaurants like Noma.
