New Nordic Cuisine Opening with Lecture from Thor Erikson
Join us for the opening night of this delicious New Nordic Cuisine exhibit! The opening begins at 6:30 pm with a lecture presented by Thor Erikson from 7:30-8:30 pm.
This exhibition focuses on a Nordic value-driven food system that has captured the attention of world-famous chefs and home cooks alike over the past 15 years. The 2004 Nordic Food Manifesto articulated a set of values for approaching food through the lenses of local production, seasonality, ethical production, and innovation. The manifesto has sparked a robust dialog about food culture, both in the Nordic countries and around the world. By examining Nordic food trends in a light-hearted, interactive format, this exhibition introduces visitors to contemporary Nordic food and its driving values today. This exhibition was organized by the Museum of Danish America, Elk Horn, Iowa.
