The Nordic Food Lab is a non-profit, self-governed organisation, established in 2008 by head chef of Noma Rene Redzepi and gastronomic entrepreneur Claus Meyer. Our purpose is to explore the building blocks of Nordic cuisine through traditional and modern gastronomies, and to share these results with chefs, academics, industry, and the public. From a house boat in the Copenhagen harbour, we investigate old and new raw materials and techniques, developing knowledge and ideas for the Nordic region and the world.
The Lab is supported by independent foundations, private companies, and government sources.
We are committed to an ethos of cooperation, knowledge sharing, and open-source research, and collaborate with various other local and international projects.
