Noma’s Rene Redzepi will appear on the silver screen once again in a new eight-part Apple TV+ series.

Omnivore premieres on 19 July and revolves around eight ingredients that define global cuisines: banana, chile, coffee, corn, pork, rice, salt, and tuna.

The chef says the series is a “decade-long dream finally brought to life”, and is a “testament to what makes food truly remarkable – the ingredients, the people, the stories, the sheer magic of cooking”.

Redzepi and the team travelled to five continents to film the show, visiting locations including Denmark, Serbia, Thailand, Japan, South Korea, Colombia, Bali, India, Rwanda, and more.

Each episode celebrates the cultivation, transformation, and consumption of one of the eight ingredients, with contributors sharing culinary traditions as well as local sustainability measures.

“This journey has reinforced one undeniable truth: food is everything,” says Redzepi.

“You can tell any story worth telling through what we cook and how we eat. Because food is never just food; it’s a window into our lives, our history, and our world.”

Redzepi worked with Executive Producer Matt Goulding on the series, who is known for his work on Anthony Bourdain: Explore Parts Unknown.

Omnivore is available to stream from 19 July.
