5.0 out of 5 stars Noma, 10 Nov 2010
By 
This review is from: Noma: Time and Place in Nordic Cuisine (Hardcover)
This book is ridiculously beautiful. You expect nothing less from Phaidon,
granted, but still, NOMA is quite something. Granted exclusive access to
NOMA archives, including diaries, team profiles, and even with a nice pull
out map of the Nordic region, NOMA is a definite buy for those who want an
inside peek into what was voted the world's greatest restaurant. The
recipes may not be for those who would rather beans on toast as they are
quite elaborate and imaginative. There are of dishes served with flowers,
one recipes involves cooking veal for ten hours (sleep, anyone?), and
another dish involves egg smoke. Sourcing ingredients may take some time,
but should not be a deterrent. As long as you know you won't find
Icelandinc Moss Seaweed in your local, erm, Iceland. But, but, but, NOMA
will inspire you and give you ideas, and still a lot of the recipes can be
followed. The pictures are very exquisite, and if you're aiming to impress
a date with your more delicate side definitely try out something like
`Steamed Egg White and Birch Wine, Wild Mushrooms' which contains
ingredients you should find on most high-streets, and went down a treat at
home last night. The book is quite big, and it's not bad for the coffee
table either, to persuade your friends that you really have advanced from
the days of pasta and pesto.
