Scandinavia

THE KING OF SHELLFISH!
I love lobsters, Shrimp, Crabs and Crayfish.
I love all shellfish, but nothing compares to the sweetness and tenderness of Langoustine.
Here, at @maaemo, Oslo, 3 Michelin stars Chef Esben Holmboe Bang gives the best possible produce a lot of love and care before serving them in a very ‘Norwegian’ way.
I could easily eat the whole pan! •••• _______________________

Many thanks to @maaemo’s team for the unforgettable experience 🙏🏼

AVANT-GARDE!

It will take me some time for me to fully absorb and process what happened last night at Noma.
The summer Vegetables menu was creative, beautiful and painfully delicious. Without a doubt the best I’ve had in my 4 visits.
There was hardly any dish from the 20 served, that I didn’t want to have more of. It was a perfect summer storm.
But the thought that occupies my mind since I woke up this morning, is that 2 weeks from now none of these dishes will be available any more, when Rene Redzepi and his team will move on to the winter ‘Forest’ menu.
I always claimed that Noma is a separate planet in the restaurants world, and should never be compared to any other restaurant. It is always avant-garde , operating ahead of everybody in unchartered territories, not looking left and right to check what other people are doing, but just focusing on its own creative mission.
What other restaurant in the world would chuck 20 perfect dishes, just to challenge itself some more? •••• _______________________

@reneredzepinoma and the whole team of @nomacph for a true once-in-a-lifetime experience 🙏🏼

Sometimes I dream that I can disrupt tasting menus by asking for a second serving of outstanding dishes. 
Here’s a perfect example at @restaurant_geranium “Marbled Hake” Caviar, Parsley Stem & Buttermilk.

Instagram post 17887305178247645 FRESHEST LANGOUSTINE EVER!
Our third lunch on the second say of The Grand Scandinavia Tour.
To me Langoustines are the Royal Family of all shell fish and definitely my favorite. 
I felt so blessed to be able to taste them just minutes after the good lone man in the red boat 🚣‍♀️ pulled them out of the sea.

Instagram post 17914727617208562 Pretty much self explanatory. I have right of passage on all highways. If I am squashed on the road, you will be fined 1,600 kroner. Life is fairly bucolic. The trick is to avoid slaughter when they turn the sheep dogs loose next week to round us all up. They like to ferment my meat or turn my hide to a cozy hygge throw. Put it in people’s chairs to warm their hind ends. Philosophize frequently with flock fellows. To comfort or feed?  To  bleat or not to bleat? That is the question. #faroeislands #faroesheep  #sheep #thehungrytourist #tht_grand_viking_trail #deepthoughts #hygge

BEST KING CRAB EVER!
I have never tasted anything that even comes close to this.
@magnusfaviken seems to be controlling the supply of these 2 meter Viking monsters, so it’s hard to meet them in any other restaurant.
The Faviken team then make this supreme product shine by treating it with a very simple and gentle method. This dish alone was worth the trip.

When people say that they are willing to make the long journey to Faviken just for
@magnusfaviken’s breakfast, it’s hard to believe them.
But hey, seeing is believing.

Instagram post 17954551810137104 SAY THANKS WHEN THANKS IS DUE!
Hungry Viking @moodypruss  Is feeling grateful for the unforgettable experience of sitting at @maaemo’s kitchen table:

Dear Esben,

I had the pleasure of eating in your restaurant as well as watching you and your staff for the entire evening, sitting in the "kitchen room". The dinner was part of our epic Viking food trail and no doubt for me Maaemo was one of the Crown jewels of the tour. The courses combined the Nordic tradition with modern cuisine in such an inspiringly creative way. I also want to compliment you about the juice pairing, which was the best one I had in my life.

Thank you for an unforgettable perfect evening, I hope I will be lucky enough to visit you again in the future.

CAVIAR DRAMA AT FÄVIKEN!

@magnusfaviken always serves caviar with a green vegetable. Sometimes with lettuce and sometimes with cabbage.
Tonight he outdid himself when he combined it with the first giant asparagus of the season.
Sit back and enjoy the drama.

Actually not that bad looking when ready, but when you hear the ingredients list that make this wrap they just don’t add up. 
And when you stick a plastic fork into this thing, 2 things happen:
1.  It gets ugly and messy fast. 
2. You just can’t stop eating it. 
SO DELICIOUS! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
For the attention of Mr. Chang @davidchang
