“Michelin Stars – Nordic By Nature” is filmed in the Faroe Islands – an ancient microcosmos of exciting products, Nordic history, tales, 37 words for fog and even more for fermentation, a thriving seafood industry, ravishing waterfalls, eccentric personalities, a native tongue – and then they have the culinary pearl, KOKS.
How is it possible to run a top restaurant like this at the end of the world? A restaurant the world before COVID-19 took immense detours to dine at and which cuisine is based on just 500 square miles of produce in a terrain that is rugged, the climate subpolar – windy, wet, cloudy, and cool, temperatures average above freezing throughout the year, with an everlasting light in the summer, but a scorching darkness all through winter.
In “Nordic by Nature” we dive into the poetic mind of a Faroese chef, and seek to find the traditions, history and distinctive ancient practices that lie beneath the most remote fine dining experience in the world.
