Head chef René Redzepi pursues his unique vision and culinary talent with military precision while exploring the tastes and flavours of the Nordic Region. The thirty-year-old son of a bus driver and a cleaner, Redzepi found his way to catering school by accident and never looked back.
At Noma, International chefs and former prison inmates work side-by-side in the pursuit of world-class cooking. “It’s like in the military, but this time it’s not some jerk shouting at me,” says Robert Petersen, a body-builder with a violent past. Working 70 to 80 hours a week, the restaurant’s staff is under constant pressure to give guests a unique experience, as nothing less than perfect is accepted by Redzepi.
