Cookbook author and acclaimed Nordic chef Magnus Nilsson
hosts a Dinner Lab
event in New Orleans on Nov. 17.
The event is part of a six-city tour celebrating Nordic food and culture and promoting the release of Nilsson's tome to the food movement, The Nordic Cookbook
Nilson is the chef at Sweden's Fäviken and one of a growing number of chef disciples of the Nordic, or "new Nordic," movement, which includes chef Rene Redzepi of Copenhagen's Noma.
The hyper-local cuisine places a strong emphasis on foraging ingredients and Old World techniques such as pickling, drying and smoking.
New Orleans is the fourth stop on Nilsson’s tour. Besides a general meet and greet with the chef, who will discuss the process in his cookbook and the highlights of Nordic cuisine, the dinner will feature a five-course menu cooked by Norwegian chef Christopher Haatuft.
In line with other Dinner Lab events, the nomadic dining club which recently dropped its membership fee, the location of the dinner is being kept secret. Guests who purchase tickets find out the location of the dinner the day before the event.
for the event are $175 and include dinner, beverages and a signed copy of Nilsson’s book.
