New Nordic Cuisine with Cookery Diploma Level 5 students
The Cookery Diploma Level 5 students prepared a New Nordic Cuisine menu created by our own Chef Finn, originally from Denmark. Finn spent his formative years working in Michelin star rated restaurants including Noma.
"We work with local, high quality ingredients to combine good taste in food with contemporary culinary techniques,” says Chef Finn. The New Nordic Cuisine has redefined the food culture of Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Iceland and Finland.
Here is the menu inspired by Chef Finn’s Nordic heritage. The Level 5 Diploma of Cookery students prepared the menu also served it at the table, describing each dish to our guests - the Level 4 NZ Certificate in Cookery.
