Message from Tova Brandt, Curator

The Museum of Danish America is developing a national traveling exhibition called “New Nordic Cuisine,” bringing the story of 21st century Nordic food culture (Finland, Iceland, Norway, Denmark, Sweden) to museums and communities across the country – from Seattle to Philadelphia and several locations in the Midwest.

In addition, we are launching an accompanying Nordic Food online video channel that will bring Nordic food stories to people wherever they are - from recipe demonstrations to restaurant tours, to interviews with influential chefs and food writers.

My colleagues and I will be happy to answer any questions you may have about the project, the audience, and opportunities for support.

“The influence of ‘New Nordic Cuisine’ can be seen in restaurants, farm-to-table efforts, and public policy around environment, agriculture, and nutrition. The 21st century has seen an evolution in Nordic food culture that focuses increasingly on regional producers, seasonal ingredients, sustainable food systems, and modern nutrition science. This movement reflects Nordic values of caring for the environment, promoting the health and wellbeing of all citizens, and celebrating the unique natural and cultural resources of the Nordic region.

- Michael Tetzschner, President of the Nordic Council
