The noma in Copenhagen - an unfulfillable dream

Every now and then I heard or read something about a very special restaurant in Copenhagen: the noma. And from the very first moment I knew that it would be a dream to go there one day. The chef René Redzepi is something like the herbalist in Haute Cuisine. The food reflects the Nordic nature. 
Now I found a website where a journalist reports about her visit at noma and she uploaded all the courses which are a lot. Enjoy!

 crispy cookie with red currant powder, bacon and pickled fir top
smoked quail's egg
carots and radishes in the flower pot
crispy bread with brown butter, herbs and vinegar powder

 raw squid with green strawberry ice, crème fraîche and dill
Norwegian crab ball on a jelly from mussels, sea rocket and purslane
musk ox tartar with horse radish, wood-sorrel, juniper and tarragon
Danish langoustine with oyster parsley emulsion and seaweed

 steamed spinach, tea, celleries and cheese
a tribute to the onions, chickweed and bouillon
Norwegian king crab, leeks in ash, mussel sauce and breadcrumbs
pickled vegetables with marrow, herbs and bouillon

 duck breast with tongue and heart, Indian cress, pear and leeks
cucumber, vervain, yoghurt and meringue
walnut powder, walnut ice cream, dried cream and dried berries
blueberries, blueberry ice cream, pine ice cream and pine ice, wild thyme blossoms, 
roasted bread and wood-sorrel

What an amazing variety of exotic dishes!
I would so much like to try every single course but I'm afraid this dream won't come true.
Have an adventurous weekend with lots of new things to try!

  1. Definitely very exotic! I love that the food reflects the Nordic nature! Some I don't know if I would be brave enough to try but some of them sound like the most delicious treats!
