People say that cooking is a male subject, and that the best chefs are men. Each of the girls working in Noma is simply amazing and doesn’t let others push her around. Apparently we women are weaker, but it turns out we can be pretty tough.
From now on, it’s time for a full mobilization and concentration, eyes and ears wide opened, and zero, absolutely ZERO mistakes allowed. Otherwise there are two options – either you are rushing out upstairs or you are sacked from a section and you move back to the production department.
Not so long ago I had the pleasure to guide my friends through Noma. I thought that if it went so well, I’ll also give you a virtual tour.
In Noma the responsible one for foraging is Michael – a wonderful person with an extensive knowledge and with Copenhagen’s topography and surroundings familiarity. It is not a secret that Rene uses self-set plants in his restaurant and as he repeated many times, foraging is like a treasure hunt. I completely agree with him.
The first week of work for the new section is passed for A +. Of course, I am the one who evaluates myself, but I must admit, I worked hard and well. I think it paid off well, because I remain at the snacks section!
I am more self-confident, still very calm, I rediscover myself and my possibilities, I become more open-minded. I am already anxious about the return, what next? I have a few ideas, I want to develop and learn. But I don’t plan too much. I simply try to catch every moment.
