Rene Redzepi and his Noma team have revealed they’re currently building the menu for the relaunch of Noma in early 2018.

Redzepi posted a video of the test kitchen, confirming the team will now put months of travelling and research into practice for the debut menu, which will revolve around the sea.

After concluding their pop-up in Mexico, Redzepi and co have been travelling for the past three months from the Faroe Islands and Iceland to Greenland and Sweden.

“We are here because we are going back in time to the opening of Noma 14 years ago, going on the same journey as we did back then,” says Redzepi.

“We’ve been going from farm to farm, to butcher to butcher and fisherman to fisherman, simply trying to see what’s out there. Nothing beats going out there and meeting people, trying to find new ingredients and updating the old knowledge we have. We were very inspired by it and found a lot of great things.”

Redzepi has confirmed the opening date for Noma has moved from December 2017 to the beginning of 2018.

“We promised ourselves that we wouldn’t open until we are ready,” he says. “It’s not a big deal, but we will not be able to open in December — it’s going to be in the beginning of 2018.

“On these journeys, there are so many things we have learnt and seen. To have a month more to work on the new menus and fresh ideas we have is a good thing.”

The new Noma will reopen in Copenhagen and will also feature an urban farm.
