Claus Meyer


Claus Meyer is one of Denmark’s most famous chefs and food communicators. For three decades he has been an inspiration for the Danish food culture and he was the ideator behind The New Nordic Kicthen manifesto. A process that resulted in a number of top chefs signing a program for the development of a new Nordic cuisine. The manifesto was a commitment to local products, sustainability, biodiversity, inclusion and health, and the aspiration was to create a brand new cuisine that would brighten the world by its deliciousness, its responsibility and its distinctive character and, eventually, be counted amongst the greatest cuisines in the world. In 2003 Claus Meyer and chef-partner René Redzepi co-founded the groundbreaking restaurant Noma.
