All systems go with the announcement that René Redzepi’s highly acclaimed restaurant, Noma, will be relocated in Australia’s Barangaroo for a 10 week season this coming January.
After the restaurants successful five-week stint in Japan last Winter, which left 62,000 diners on a waiting list, Renédecided it was time to go in search of more diverse and wonderful produce in which to showcase his award-winning cooking.
He felt that; “The immersion into Japanese culture challenged us to understand a new set of ingredients, develop new mindsets, and explore new possibilities.”
With this in mind, plus a certain amount of wanderlust for Australia, plans for the new adventure began.
The original two-starred Noma in Copenhagen has featured in the top spots on the World’s 50 Best Restaurants for many years. It will remain closed during the duration of the 10-week season as Redzepi will be relocating the whole team, “from the dishwasher to general manager”, in a bid to make the experience as flawless as possible for all the expectant diners.
Its new home will not be a disappointment either. The pop up will be located in the new Barangaroo harbourside precinct of Sydney. With sweeping views of the famous harbour and fine weather to accompany, this will no doubt be one of the best Noma pop ups to date.
Speaking about the new produce and ingredients he will have at his disposal in the diverse landscape that is Australia, he stated that:
“I’ve been wanting to spend more time there— exploring, tasting, and understanding its ingredients. From the tropical fruit in the north, to the native pepper leaf of Tasmania; the pristine fish and shellfish of the very south, and all the new exotic wonders in between. Our research forays will take us into the bush, around every shoreline, weeding our way through Flinders and Kangaroo Island.”
As a restaurant that infamously uses unusual ingredients and unique flavours in its award-winning cuisine, time will only tell what the all-Australian menu has in store.
