This past week my classmates and I reunited for Peru’s Mistura Festival. We all earned our masters Restaurant Management and Innovation at San Sebastian’s Basque Culinary Center last year. This adventure was an opportunity to reunite to discover and share Peru’s rich gastronomy and mull over the regional techniques and flavours.
the journey covers an expanse of space and time,
while the memory of the destination, is limited in time and in space.
Early morning arrivals,
calm breeze in the air,
lots of hay.
This past summer I visited Coppenhagen for the MAD ’13 conference: GUTS
I ventured to Scandinavia to have my first taste of Nordic Cuisine and here I experienced the beginnings of the New Nordic Diet.
Denmark is located in the northernmost point of the European continent, bordering Sweden and Norway by ways of the Baltic Sea, this Sea is also know for being one of the areas with most biodiversity on the planet…under water of course.
My first taste of the local cuisine was at Aaman’s, a restaurant that offers Danish classics alongside more modern Nordic dishes… writing this I discover Aaman’s actually ventured to NYC in TriBeCa .
Two friends and I shared the different smørrebrød. I got the typical Danish The Chrisitansøs Girl’s Spiced Herring w/ potatoes dill, pickled mustard seeds, capers and red onion. The herring and pickles blend and cut through the cream sauce. I think it’s delicious. A filling dish for the cooler weather that isn’t heavy and cloying.
