As Nordic chefs, we find that the time has now come for us to create a New Nordic Kitchen, which in virtue of its good taste and special character compares with the standard of the greatest kitchens of the world. The chefs also want to develop new applications from traditional Nordic food products, and to combine the best in Nordic cookery and traditions with the impulse from abroad. So like Nordic design The New Nordic Cuisine sticks to basic.
