Chuck has a category of posts written by other bloggers and which are worth reading. I’d like to introduce it on Very Good Food as well. The reason is that I really should have written up my Paris trip and experience at the 6 hands dinner event at In de Wulf but got caught up reading about Food Snob’s noma experience instead. My first Meal Of Others post has a theme: noma. I have written so much about noma myself – so now here’s what the other blogger say about the restaurant.
I originally published this post on September 24th listing only the three posts of Food Snob, Luxeat and Chuck as they were the most recent posts I knew of. But then I realised that I would like to dedicate this post to noma and also gather links to all the other posts talking about restaurant noma. So the idea of this post is to be a live post and update it whenever I find a new writing about noma.
The Colors of Copenhagen by La Tartine Gourmande, January 2008
Journalist and food writer Bea wrote a post about all her nice experiences in Copenhagen and included a few words about her noma visit as well.
A Feast For All Your Senses: noma by Food & Thoughts, April 2008
My friend Zarah and I went for lunch together in January 2008 and this is a write-up of one of Zarah’s several visits to noma. I love the way Zarah writes about food and about life. This is my version of our great lunch together.
noma, Copenhagen by Wandering Epicures, August 2008
Michael and Linda kindly invited me to join them for dinner at MR when they visited Copenhagen last year. A couple of days later they went to noma and this is Michael’s experience of their dinner. It’s amazing how much Linda and Michael travel around the world and always interesting to see their view of their dining experiences.
Wonderful noma by High-End Food, March 2009
This was my German friend Ingo’s first visit to noma. Ingo likes to introduced the chef when he posts about a restaurant and most of his post has this fixed format which I very much like about his way of writing.
noma (Denmark Copenhagen) by chuck eats, July 2009
Chuck is often analytical and philosophical about his experiences. Only few (restaurant) bloggers take the review to a higher level than just summarizing the meal and the experience. But Chuck does, and that’s a real talent!
noma, Copenhagen by Food Snob, September 2009
Food Snob is incredible thorough when he writes restaurants reviews and is surely the blogger who posts the loooongest write-ups. I don’t always read them through, in fact I’m not sure I ever really did it until tonight where his noma post completely captured me. Of course, it’s always more fun to read about a place where one has been, so this has obviously also something to do with it. I know Food Snob and know how he adores this restaurants, but in his review he manages not to let it overshadow the post. And, what’s also particularly interesting is the summary of how the world regard noma and René Redzepi.
Noma- the rise of Scandinavian gastronomy by Luxeat, September 2009
I’m sure you all know Aiste, who I introduced two years ago . She on the other hand, writes short reviews but is always spot on with her conclusions. Like here for example: “Going back to the beginning of the post, i used a word “revolutionary”. In fact maybe it is too bold to call Noma revolutionary as it is more likely “evolutional”. Marc Veyrat, Alain Passard or David Kinch -they all have explored or are exploring the use of various herbs, flowers and other unexpected products in their kitchens. On the other hand, René Redzepi has succeeded to put the whole region (Scandinavia)on the gastronomy map and this is definitely revolutionary.”
