2018 looks set to be a busy year for René Redzepi, what with the opening of Noma 2.0, and now, it’s been announced, the release of the first of three new cookbooks, plus a food-focused biannual.
According to Eater, Redzepi will be releasing three new, technique-focused cookbooks after entering into a partnership with publishers Artisan. The first, due for release in October 2018 and co-written with Noma’s Director of Fermentation David Zilber, will be called Foundations of Flavour: The Noma Guide to Fermentation. The titles of the next two books have yet to be announced. Redzepi has previously released two cookbooks through Phaidon: Noma: Time and Place in Nordic Cuisine and René Redzepi: A Work in Progress.
The Danish chef will also be launching a biannual publication called Dispatches in September 2018. Edited by Lucky Peach co-founder Chris Ying, it will address the work done by his MAD non-profit and the issues raised at the annual corresponding food symposium in Copenhagen, with contributions from leaders across the food world.
Oh and he’s also just released a new foraging app. How does he fit it all in?
Geranium's Rasmus Kofoed has decided to stop serving meat at the restaurant currently ranked number two on the World's 50 Best Restaurants list. But the Danish chef isn't yet willing to go purely plant-based.
