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. Culinary Anthropologist has teamed up with CPH Good Food to offer some special classes to bring new Nordic cuisine to Anna’s home teaching kitchen in London.

This October we’re going to cook up a stunning autumnal lunch together, including making our own crispbreads,salmon rillettesquick-picklesapple bread andbuttermilk cheese – all techniques any home cook can master. Come along to make and then feast on:

Salmon rillettes with gin-pickled fennel on seeded crispbreads
Flowerpot apple sourdough with buttermilk cheese
Whole salt-baked celeriac with chervil & chive fluffy butter
Venison & juniper meatballs 
Creamy rye with mustard, curly kale & mushrooms 
Beetroot, plum & red onion pickle
Fresh and caramelized pear with malt ice cream and hazelnuts 

This will be a hands-on class limited to 8 guests.
You can see photos from the previous Spring and Summer and Autumn classes.

“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.

I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and have since made several of the recipes. I cannot stress how helpful it was to have both Anna and Mia to answer any questions that I had about the dishes and cooking techniques as we went along. My only wish is that there were more canap├ęs to nibble on as it does build up your appetite!

Will be going again!

Great day

Really enjoyed my first cooking class with the Culinary Anthropologist - Anna and Mia were fantastic hosts, the other participants were lovely, and the food was delicious. Will be making all the dishes we learnt again at home.

What a great day!!!!!!
