Nordic Forward Trend Seminar 2004 turned out to be a defining year for the Nordic gastro scene when 12 top chefs came together to put the Nordic region on the gastronomic world map and the New Nordic Manifesto was born. A new generation of Nordic chefs have made their mark from New York to Hong Kong and Bolivia, spreading the gospel of the manifesto. By 2017, the hype is over, but the impact is huge – and growing. All over the world we see the principles of the New Nordic Manifesto applied to national, regional and local cuisines, creating a richly varied global gastronomy helping us to combat environmental threats and climate challenges, along with pride over local assets and traditions and how they translate into new insights and initiatives the world over. New Nordic fast-Forward – the New Global?
