Fresh and carefully prepared foods from the home region often contain many vitamins, minerals and trace elements. They are in line with the trend, and the cooking philosophies that surround the regional products also help to choose a micronutrient-rich cuisine. The film NOMA takes up this intention in a special way.
Noma is the name of a restaurant in Copenhagen that has been voted the world’s best restaurant four times. On the menu, which is now widely copied internationally, dishes from Scandinavian nature, grilled roses, desserts decorated with ants, common wood-sorrel, lichens, local mushrooms, birch juice, etc. Nordic landscapes in the light of the seasons served as a model for the arrangement on the plate. The food and drink celebrated a deliberate immersion in this setting.
NOMA is anything but a film about the practical and cheap preparation of natural foods. In a more subtle way, he stimulates the discovery of the nutritive richness in his own environment.
