This week on The Morning After, hosts Sari Kamin and Lesley Stockton are joined in the studio by Claus Meyer, a culinary entrepreneur, food activist, cookbook author, professor, and TV host. He was the owner of the two-Michelin-star restaurant Noma in Copenhagen, and is often credited as the founder of the New Nordic Cuisine philosophy, which promotes local, natural and seasonal produce as a basis for new dishes both in restaurants and in the home. Currently, he runs Agern in Grand Central Terminal, which specializes in contemporary Scandinavian fare.
