Helen Hollyman talks New Nordic cuisine with chef Mads Refslund, co-founder of Noma Restaurant in Denmark and chef at ACME Restaurant in NYC, on this week’s episode of U Look Hungry. Mads explains what excites him most about being in the kitchen and how working in NYC is different than Denmark. Hear how the farm to table philosophy rings true in all of his work and how his cooking techniques are evolving, even if his style at heart is old school. Learn more about Nordic cuisine and culinary philosophy on an in-the field episode of U Look Hungry. This program was sponsored by Heritage Foods USA.

“It’s very difficult to open a restaurant [in the US]. You need permission to have things like sous vide, and all kinds of certifications… it’s weird!”

“People don’t have time for cooking here [in New York]. It’s not so stressful in Denmark.”
