René Redzepi (b. 1977) was born in Copenhagen to a Danish mother and a Macedonian father. Drawing on his unique cultural heritage, he has been widely credited with re-inventing Nordic cuisine. In 2003, at the age of just 25, after already having worked at both El Bulli and The French Laundry, Redzepi became head chef, co-owner and co-founder of Noma (from NOrdisk and MAd, meaning “nordic food”). Since then he has quickly developed to become one of the world’s most respected chefs. In April, Noma won the #1 World’s Best Restaurant at the 2010 S. Pellegrino World’s 50 Best Restaurant Awards. Noma: Time and Place in Nordic Cuisine is his first major cookbook. He lives in Copenhagen, with his wife and daughter.
