Coming to theatres and VOD tomorrow, Friday, December 18: NOMA: MY PERFECT STORM
Pierre Deschamps’ intimate look at René Redzepi’s revolutionary Copenhagen restaurant debuted at San Sebastian this Fall. It went on to screen at DOC NYC, CPH:DOX, and the food-focused Tokyo Gohan fest.
I previously wrote about the film for DOC NYC, saying:
When René Redzepi set out to create Noma, a restaurant in Copenhagen that only used Nordic ingredients, the culinary community thought he was mad. Within a relatively short period of time, Noma bested longtime champion El Bulli to be named the best restaurant in the world. The acclaimed chef’s continual updating of Nordic cuisine allowed Noma to keep that title three years in a row, but after a surprising upset costs him the top spot, Redzepi seeks redemption through reinvention in Pierre Deschamps’ delectable documentary.
