    At Noma – four times named the world’s best restaurant – every dish includes some form of fermentation, whether it’s a bright hit of vinegar, a deeply savory miso, an electrifying drop of garum, or the sweet intensity of black garlic. Fermentation is one of the foundations behind noma’s extraordinary flavour profiles.

    Now René Redzepi, chef and co-owner of noma, and David Zilber, the chef who runs the restaurant’s acclaimed fermentation lab, share never-before-revealed techniques to creating noma’s extensive pantry of ferments. And they do so with a book conceived specifically to share their knowledge and techniques with home cooks. With more than 750 full-colour photographs, most of them step-by-step how-tos, and with every recipe approachably written and meticulously tested, Foundations of Flavor: The Noma Guide to Fermentation takes readers far beyond the typical kimchi and sauerkraut to include koji, kombuchas, shoyus, misos, lacto-ferments, vinegars, garums, and black fruits and vegetables. And – perhaps even more important – it shows how to use these game-changing pantry ingredients in 100 original recipes.

    Fermentation is already building as the most significant new direction in food (and health). With Foundations of Flavor: The Noma Guide to Fermentation, it’s about to be taken to a whole new level.
    02 - Short description/annotation The world’s most influential chef redefines the possibilities of a restaurant cookbook by sharing new techniques for fermentation – the “secret sauce” behind every dish at noma, the world’s leading restaurant, and one of the most important food topics today – and offering revolutionary knowledge and original recipes for home cooks and professional chefs alike.

    By popular demand, Lucky Peach #9 is our second Cooks & Chefs issue--aka Cooks & Chefs 2.0: once more, with feeling. Francis Lam pays a visit to the lauded but elusive Alex Lee; Peter Meehan talks life (and how it happens to a cook) with legendary pastry chef Claudia Fleming. Daniel Boulud and Michael Anthony school us in the art of omelet-making. Pulitzer-prize-winning writer Jonathan Gold and funny-as-hell artist Lisa Hanawalt hop on board as new columnists. And there's a magazine inside the magazine, like a Russian nesting doll: with content culled from Rene Redzepi's annual MAD food conference, which Lucky Peach had the honor of co-curating. The theme, this year, was GUTS, both literal and figurative. We heard from an array of speakers: chefs, of course, and activists, filmmakers, and a schoolgirl too. Their talks were inspiring for cooks, chefs, and eaters alike.

    In 2012, Time Magazine named Rene Redzepi & Claus Meyer (owners of NOMA restaurant) as two of the World's 100 Most Influential People, for putting Denmark on the world's gastronomic map, and for influencing a new generation of chefs around the world. The New Nordic Cuisine is about getting out into the countryside to forage for the best and most unusual ingredients. It's about experimenting and presenting exciting new ways of combining traditional foods. It's clean, elegant, natural and delicious. In this book, Mikkel Karstad, consultant chef and advisor to the NOMA team, takes this inspiration home. In his own kitchen he shows us how to make 5-6 different dishes from a selection of fourteen favourite ingredients. These range from fennel, berries and sage, to squid, beef and lamb. Beautifully yet sparsely photographed and designed, this book will take you on a culinary adventure into the heart of pure Scandinavian cooking.

    The food served at Hartwood is "addictive," says Noma chef Rene Redzepi, adding, "It's the reason people line up for hours every single day to eat there, even though their vacation time is precious." Werner's passion for dazzling flavours and natural ingredients is expertly translated into recipes anyone can cook at home. Every dish has a balance of sweet and spicy, fresh and dried, oil and acid, without relying heavily on wheat and dairy. The flavouring elements are simple - honeys, salts, fresh and dried herbs, fresh and dried chiles, onions, garlic - but by using the same ingredients in different forms, Werner layers flavours to bring forth maximum deliciousness. The recipes are beautifully photographed and interspersed with inspiring, gorgeously illustrated essays about this setting and story, making Hartwood an exhilarating experience from beginning to end.

    A JOURNAL is a candid, highly personal document of the creative processes at Noma and the challenges faced by its chefs over a twelve-month period in an unspecified year of the restaurant's history. After a month of vacation, Redzepi made a resolution to keep this journal and to dedicate a year to the creativity and wellbeing at Noma. The result: an unusually candid, and often witty, insight into the inner workings of one of the most creative minds in the food industry today.

    Rene Redzepi is widely recognized as one of the world's most in?uential chefs. After closing his world-renowned Copenhagen restaurant Noma in 2017 - where he created his inventive take on Nordic cuisine with a distinctive emphasis on regional specialities - he recently opened Noma 2.0. Redzepi also established the not-for-pro?t MAD symposium in 2011 to galvanize the creative potential of the global cooking community.
