About New Nordic cuisine and Mia Kristensen

One of the world’s best restaurants, Noma in Copenhagen, has propelled new Nordic cuisine into the limelight. Chef René Redzepi’s innovative approach showcases the finest indigenous Nordic ingredients in fresh, light menus. Many of these ingredients also grow in Britain, or can be easily sourced. But with dishes such as 'edible soil', oyster porridge, and veal & blackcurrant cookies, this is not food most mere mortals can recreate at home.

Step in Mia Kristensen. Mia’s company CPH Good Food offers Nordic cuisine classes in Copenhagen to help home cooks translate the new Nordic diet movement into do-able, delicious and healthy home cooking. Anna has teamed up with Mia to offer classes to bring new Nordic cuisine to London.

“I am passionate about Nordic cuisine - its seasonality, lightness of ingredients and symbiotic relationship to nature. Nordic foods contain all five basic tastes and this makes it complete.

Many ingredients are found in nature, which encourages wonderful family trips, cooking in nature and of course eating together,” says Mia Kristensen.

A student of Food Science, Mia will share her knowledge of the whys and wherefores of cooking during the class, providing an insight into the culinary magic of restaurants like Noma.

This is the second course I have done with the Culinary Anthropologist, and I am sure it wont be the last. Each time Anna has presented the day with another cook, sharing her wonderful home kitchen, which is set up for groups in a way that makes learning fun and easy. For midsummer the doors were slid back to access the garden where we ate what we cooked. Highlight for me: hot smoked prawns in a foil lined saucepan, with wood chips creating the smoke that cooked the prawns in the steamer above. Second inspiration that I will be doing again: barbequed radishes,
the long pink ones split down the middle. Absolutely delicious on open rye sandwiches, topping off other ingredients. It was all washed down with great drinks, and lots of talk about food in Denmark. Anna and Mia are totally professional, and their love of food, and their passion to share it, made the evening one to savour and enjoy. Excellent value for money, in a great environment with small enough groups to get to know each other, whilst sharing great food and inspiration to branch out from old cooking habits to embrace the new.
