Michelin-starred chef Rene Redzepi will be in attendance at the Almeida Theatre, Islington this weekend to discuss his new book A Work in Progress. Danish chef Rene works at one of the world’s most innovative restaurants, Noma, in Copenhagen and spent a year keeping a journal of his experiences. Three books in one, a journal, recipe book and album of snapshots, A Work in Progress recounts the day-to-day life of Redzepi and restaurant Noma, from the trials of developing new dishes to the successes that come with being at the cutting edge of gastronomy. While the journal is at the heart of A Work in Progress, the recipe book containing 100 brand new recipes and the album of 200 candid snapshots support it and provide an unprecedented insight into the inner workings of Noma, its talented team of chefs and Redzepi, its driving force. Rene Redzepi has been widely credited with reinventing Nordic cuisine. After cooking at some of the world’s most prestigious restaurants, including under Ferran Adria at elBulli and Thomas Keller at The French Laundry, Redzepi became head chef and co-founder of Noma in 2003 at the age of just 25. Since then he has quickly developed to become one of his generation’s most respected chefs and has received huge international acclaim including winning the Best Restaurant in the World award for three consecutive years and being honoured in Time’s 100 Most Influential People 2012. A Work in Progress is Redzepi’s second book. The book is priced at £39.95 and Rene will be hosting a Q&A and signing session in Islington between 2-4pm on Sunday and tickets are available here.
