If you were one of the thousands of unlucky food lovers to miss out on tickets to Rene Redzepi’s Noma pop-up in Japan, now’s your chance to have a piece of the event in your very own kitchen.
That’s because the Noma team have set up an online store selling off the table and dinnerware used by the restaurant during their pop-up at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Tokyo.
Plates, bowls, utensils and even the shelves were designed specifically for the restaurant, with Redzepi and his team approaching a mix of 14 Japanese artists to design tableware that was locally sourced materials like clay.
The move will allow people who were at the event and those not lucky enough to get tickets to have their own little piece of Noma at home, however, the custom designed pieces are not cheap. A black fork from the desighner Akito Akgagi will set you back $200, while chopsticks by Shiro Miura cost $65.
The most expensive item listed is for a specially designed shelving unit by Wahl & Ross that costs $2,890. This is followed by a beautiful stoneware tea pot by Jinpachi Ogawa which costs $695.
Garum is an ancient ingredient that had been broadly overlooked for hundreds of years before it gained popularity in New Nordic cuisine. Kiki Aranita takes a deep dive into the world of this oft-forgotten fermented flavour-booster.
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.
