vegetation: planting thoughts

A short message from René Redzepi of noma, Copenhagen:

The role of the chef is evolving and developing into a positon of influence – one that impacts the manner in which people and food professionals consume and connect with food. Such responsibility requires education, an elevation of awareness and social maturity.

On the 27th and 28th of August, we are holding a symposium, which we desire to be an educational tool for the developing chef. By improving literacy in ecology, studying food history and food production methods, this symposium seeks to increase the general awareness of today’s chef. Whilst an homage to quality, seasons, nature and knowledge, with this idea we also embark on a journey to enrich the soil of every chef’s understanding.

The total price for the two-day symposium is 1.500 DKK (approx. €200). This figure is inclusive of light refreshment and two communal lunches at the event. It also covers access to the nearby Bazaar area where a wide selection of top Nordic produce will be displayed for the public to buy and taste. Places are limited to just 250 as we want all the participants, speakers and audience to engage and interact. Tickets are reserved for chefs and farmers.

    Would have loved to attend but I am no cook and not yet a farmer… Hopefully, participants will share their thoughts #plantingthoughts … or any other # event. Superb panel!

    Will you be attending ?

    I am truly looking forward to be there, and inspired by your wonderful text on the restaurant I managed to get a table at Fäviken a couple of days after the symposium. This will be a great experience.

    Dear Food Snob,
    My name is Layne Mosler, and I’m the editor at Rama Food, a new digital food tour company. I’m not sure if you got my email, but I love your blog and wonder if you’d be interested in writing a London tour for our iPhone app? If you’d like to send me an email – – I’d be glad to tell you more.
    Cheers and happy eating,
    PS – No, I’m not going to ask you to write for free!
