Premier latinoamericana

In January 2015, the Noma, acknowledged as the best restaurant in the world and ran by its charismatic cook René Redzepi, moved all its team from Denmark to Japan. A trip through the flavors and tastes of one of the most impressive food cultures in the world.

René Redzepi and his group of selected chefs move to Tokyo and open a branch of Noma, the finest restaurant in the world. But there’s a metaphysical (and material) search in that fate: how do you deal with the pressure of being “the best in the world”? How do you get to always meet the challenge and expectations? You do it by spreading a Herzogian, larger than life quest lead by an insane spiritual guide, across forests and distant corners, in search of (local) ingredients that allow them to make unique dishes. There’s suffering, pain, passion and failure before an accomplishment. Because what matters for René is obsession, madness and leaving your comfort zone: the secret for being the best in the world lies on having a vital experience. But probably no one knows at what price. Until now. CM
