On the heels of Noma being voted “The S. Pellegrino Best Restaurant in the World,” Noma’s head chef and owner René Redzepi has released his first cookbook, Noma: Time and Place in Nordic Cuisine. Indeed now is the time, and Noma is the place. Those who can’t make it to the Copenhagen restaurant can relish this amazing cookbook that not only features Redzepi’s Nordic cuisine and philosophy, but is also a work of art to be savored. The photos alone are stunning! Check out the photos and recipes of “pork neck with bulrushes, violets and malt,” “vegetable field” and “snowman” in the recipe boxes to the right (photographs by Ditte Isager).
