New Nordic is sweeping the epicurean world. While the NORTH Festival’s Collaboration Dinners bring the flavors of Scandinavia to New York, the Master Classes allow participants to delve into the history and personalities that shaped this culinary movement. The same world renown chefs who are teaming up to create lavish lunches and exclusive dinners at Nordic restaurants throughout the city will converge on the International Culinary Center for the weekend to demonstrate some of their signature dishes while providing unique insight into their heritage and culinary experience.
The local chefs will include Mads Refslund (Acme), Marcus Jernmark (Aquavit), Fredrik Berselius (Aska), Daniel Burns (Luksus) and Carl Kristian Frederiksen (Ammanss-Copenhagen). They will be joined from overseas by Matt Orlando (Amass), Esben Holmboe Bang (Maaemo), Gunnar Gislason (Dill), Gustav Tradgardh (Sjomagasinet) Sasu Laukkonen (Chef & Sommelier) and Frode Selvaag (Ryfylkekokken). Attendees will have the opportunity to chose between a full- or half-day schedule of classes.
“I am most excited about the Master Classes. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for people to meet these amazing chefs in person and learn first-hand about their heritage and passion for food,” says Honest Cooking Editor in Chief, Kalle Bergman. “I can’t wait to see all of these talented people in the same place.”
