My extended noma experience

In my previous post about noma, you an see that it has been an epic adventure.

At the end of the meal, the staff asked if we had time for a mini tour of the kitchen facilities. Of course we did! It was really nice to see the spaces in which the preparations of the mis-en-place for the ingredients, the makeshift grill for all the grilling, and the cooking kitchen before the chef's pass. Most of the food at noma is about the most seasonal and freshest ingredients so the prep kitchen is a large space with many interns working alongside the chefs. The service and kitchen staff seem to like working there and treat each other with respect despite their job status. It appears that everyone that works there wants to learn a lot from working alongside the very best chefs. A very welcoming International team from around the world.

  1. The material and aggregation is excellent and telltale as comfortably.

  2. Wow Alaine!! 😳😍 what a fabulous birthday experience! The video has really brought it alive for me, I totally want to go but not sure if the wait list will out wait me!!

    1. Thanks Katie! I'd recommend maybe waiting to see what they open next in the new Noma. It will be a bigger space with a new concept. :-)

  3. Looks delicious!! And how cool that you got to do a tour of the kitchen! This is great! #GLTlove
