The Amateur Gourmet: Escape From Noma

A thoroughly engaging and entertaining write-up, with a refreshingly honest perspective, of one person’s experience at the supposed “best restaurant in the world” [c/o kottke.org]. Perhaps it wasn’t intended as such (as the writer makes it clear they would’ve got a kick out of the place were they not feeling unwell) but to me, Noma simply oozes pretentious bolloxology — both in the superior notions of the institution itself, and its reflection in the cult that ‘foodies’ have built around it, and others like it. #link
