'Time & Place in Nordic Cuisine' is the title of a new cookbook by top chef René Redzepi. The book reveals the food philosophy and creativity of the world’s leading restaurant NOMA (an abbreviation of NOrdisk MAd, 'Nordic food'). It contains over 90 original recipes from the renowned young chef. The book is being launched in early October.

NOMA was voted world’s best restaurant at the San Pellegrino World’s 50 Best Restaurants awards, on April 26th 2010, shoving Spain’s elBulli off the throne after four years of dominance, and completing the success story of Redzepi’s quest to use only local and fresh seasonal ingredients. His uncompromising determination and passion for nature has resulted in something truly original, which has now won recognition worldwide.

In addition to recipes, the book also contains photographs of food and Nordic scenery, taken by photographer Ditte Isager. Furthermore, there is a foreword by Danish artist Olafur Eliasson, a frequent visitor at NOMA, excerpts from Redzepi’s diary from the period leading up to the opening of the restaurant in 2003, and descriptions of Redzepi’s relationships with nine of NOMA’s closest collaborators and local producers.

René Redzepi will be touring Australia, USA and the UK throughout October and November to promote his new book. On Friday 12 November, Redzepi will be on stage at the Freemasons Hall in London to talk about his new book and sign copies afterwards.
