- The Stockholm way of New Nordic Cuisine
The New Nordic food phenomenon was truly a bottom-up movement that started with a group of food aficionados and chefs who had a love for Nordic food. They set up a manifesto underlining not only the importance of wholesome green ingredients and sustainable farming methods, but also stressing the overall social responsibility of the food industry. New Nordic cuisine takes Scandinavian culinary tradition to a new level in an innovative version, using carefully selected ingredients and a focus on locally produced, organic foods.
