The Great Nordic Feast
To all our friends in and around London on the 20th-22nd of October, the Great Nordic Feast holds its first ever London celebration of Nordic cuisine across the regions, and it’s one event not to miss!
The unique and expressive flavours of Nordic cuisine, music and talks will be taking over London’s Southbank Centre over the three-day event which will be hosted inside Scandinavian style tipi tents on Southbank Centre’s Festival Terrace. The event allow their guests to get up close with some of the most renowned culinary talents to watch them cook, bake and listen to them talk, whilst enjoying the feast.
“Nordic Feast aims to introduce the best tastes and culinary talents from Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Norway and Iceland as well as the more unknown Nordic countries of the Faroe Islands, Greenland and Åland to London foodies, through inspiring artisan breakfasts and dinners, hosted by a collaboration of renowned chefs.”
To mention a few, the gastronomic experts from the Nordic regions include Titti Qvarnström, the first female head chef in Sweden with a Michelin Star, Ylfa Helgadottir, chef the cuisine and owner of Kopar Restaurant in Iceland, Niklas Edstedt from Sweden, the man behind the innovative cooking with fire concept in Sweden, and many more!
The days are divided in three, starting from 9am the morning will serve a Nordic Artisan Breakfast buffet, and the afternoon, starting from 12.30pm, will serve a Nordic Feast for lunch, and finally from 18.30pm the Nordic Feast will be served for dinner (vegetarian tickets, lactose and gluten-free alternatives are available).
You can also pop in all day between 9am-8pm for a taste of the Nordic destinations where you can have a “fika” or sample some of the Nordic flavours and drinks.
“While each Nordic country is unique, we share some similarities in our national cuisines and way of life. Our fresh, clean produce and deeply rooted values of equality, openness, trust and compassion are what sets us apart from the rest of the world, and a key part of our happiness and wellbeing. As well as showcasing our diversity, The Great Nordic Feast will provide a rare glimpse into our wonderful region, its traditions, identity and people to demonstrate that every day, unique and exceptional food experiences are being served up in remarkable locations. It will also bring light to our wholesome and sustainable approach to cooking and the genius of some of the world’s most exciting chefs and bakers.”
