    Default Noma (Denmark) - my 6 hour lunch @ one of the world's most influential restaurants

    instead of GR, i was traveling abroad, eating at 3 restaurants i have been dying to try for two years - Noma being at the top of the list. they are influencing a ton of chefs right now b/c they forage most of their ingredients, insisting they are local and native to denmark. when i was eating, they came by with a 50lb bag of rose petals they intended to marinate/pickle/preserve for the upcoming winter.

    they still use modern techniques (chef worked at El Bulli) but they fuse it pretty seamlessly with traditional methods and 'natural' cooking. looking at the dishes below, you'll see they are covered with various herbs, roots, and 'weeds' that noma picked from the wild. this will be the near-future of fine dining over the next 5 years...

    i went with a very good customer so we got the food blogger rock star treatment - super nice, helpful, and excited people. this is a restaurant that should not be missed! (the full report will have to wait a few weeks on my blog - ChuckEats blog )

    here are most of the dishes - still a few i'm trying to figure out.


    Smoked quail egg


    Rye bread, chicken skin, lump fish roe and smoked cheese


    Radish, soil and herbs


    Toast, herbs, turbot roe and vinegar


    Shrimp and seaweed


    Bread with lard


    Rhubarb and herbs


    Tartar and wood sorrel


    Razor clams and parsley


    Aromatic juniper and tarragon


    Langostine and söl



    Asparagus and woodruff


    Mussels and king crab


    Turbot and vegetable stems


    Shoots of fiddlehead, hops and bull rush



    Marrow and pickled vegetables


    Musk ox and milk skin

    Couldn't agree more! None of it looks appetizing at all. Give me a nice steak and I will be a happy man.
