Noma 2.0 is underway with its third seasonal menu of the year, this time, celebrating the bounty of autumn with game and forest themed dishes.
Rene Redzepi is keen to point out that “this is the only period of the year when meat will play a starring role at Noma, a teal for 2, a goose for 4, leg of moose, reindeer tongue, and wild duck.” And while the team have experimented with how to make whole use of any animal that comes into the kitchen, umami duck brains might prove challenging for less intrepid eaters.
However, it’s not all about the meat, there are also the season’s bounties like berries, mushrooms, nuts, and all of the wild plants putting in a healthy appearance.
The acclaimed Copenhagen restaurant opened in its new location back in February with a northern seafood-inspired menu, following on with a vegetables season in the summer, including the famous vegetable shwarma.
Take a look at some of the game an forest inspired dishes and ingredients below.
