If you're in love with the Nordic food scene, Nordic by Nature, published by Gestalten, is the refreshing and insightful new guide guaranteed to make your heart beat a little faster.
Breathing new life into the popular food movement, this defining book takes a holistic look at the Nordic food scene and its key players in Denmark: "This is not just a book nor a collection of recipes. It is an inspirational insight into the state of the industry as a whole and a reflection of the revolutionary players who create it," says food writer Andrea Petrini in the introduction.
Leading Danish and Denmark-based chefs and food leaders, such as Claus Meyer, Kamilla Seidler, Nicolai Nørregaard, and Matthew Orlando, are all given space to reflect on their relationship with the environment, the raw materials it offers and how to cook sustainably and healthily across 304 pages.
The chefs also provide access to the secrets of their kitchens, uncovering more than 70 recipes, in this "encyclopedia for experimenting with the unconventional."
And, if that weren't enough, there are also plenty of beautiful interior design shots of the famous minimal Nordic design and lifestyle at 29 restaurants.
Copies can be picked up from Gestalten for 49.90 euros.
