The Great Nordic Feast – London’s 1st celebration of Nordic food

By | Articles

It’s hard to believe that some of our Nordic countries have been in a battle with each other for hundreds of years. Especially since we share the same values of equality, openness, simplicity, trust, and compassion.

It’s deeply rooted in all Nordic cultures and in turn, leads to a core system of beliefs, when it comes to leading a balanced and healthy lifestyle.

Even though we don’t fight any longer, it’s still groundbreaking that eight Nordic destinations will come together to serve up London’s 1st celebration of the tastiest treats from the lands of the midnight sun. We call it The Great Nordic Feast. And it will be one great feast, I promise! And guess if I’m proud to be part of this!

You will be introduced to some of the most top culinary talents from Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Norway, Iceland as well as the lesser-known Nordic regions of Åland, the Faroe Islands and Greenland. Together with some of UK’s most interesting and influential chefs, they will cook up a Nordic storm. And for a change, at least in the Food world, it’s an event where the majority of the really skilled chefs happen to be women!

The Great Nordic Feast is all about connecting talented and passionate chefs and people through good food, our lifestyle (including cooking on fire), clean ingredients, foraging, equality, and inclusiveness. The Nordic soils and landscape are among the most pristine on the planet, the changing seasons and the wilderness on our doorstep can make every day an adventure.

The authenticity, composure, and the relaxed attitude of people in The Nordics make it straightforward to live, work, travel, and experience. We want to share that. Good food, passionate people and our love of nature are the connections. We would love if you want to join us at The Great Nordic Feast and maybe later – please come visit us for real?
