At her restaurant Credo in Trondheim she has taken her passion for sustainability to a new level in her way of communicating to her guest: awareness of the close bond between the farmer, chef and consumer is for instances visualized by portrait photos of every cow she gets milk from, their name, age etc. Thanks to the close cooperation with the farmers, she received Michelin’s first sustainability price in 2019.
