Celebrating New Nordic Cuisine

New Nordic cuisine continues to generate a buzz, with recent articles the New York Times and City Pages, the Twin Cities' alternative weekly. Both articles celebrate the thriving Nordic food scene in the Twin Cities, highlighting the success of Bachelor Farmer, the restaurant opened in 2011 by Eric and Andrew Dayton in the Minneapolis warehouse district, and announcing the opening of Fika, the new cafe of the American Swedish Institute.

The New Nordic lovefest continues in Viking. You'll find an interview with Chef Ørjan Johannessen, winner of the prestigious culinary competition Bocuse d'Or Europe 2012,  along with his recipe for Venison Carpaccio "Austevoll" in our August 2012 issue. If sweets are your thing, you'll find dessert recipes from three of Norway's historic hotels in our April 2012 issue. For an overview of the New Nordic food movement, check out Kari Diehl's article in our October 2011 issue. And be sure to stay tuned for our October 2012 issue, where we explore the fusion of traditional Nordic ingredients with the Japanese sushi tradition. God Appetitt!
