New Nordic Cuisine Opening
with Lecture from Thor Erickson


January 13, 2023

6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Nordia House


Join us for the opening night of this delicious New Nordic Cuisine exhibit! The opening begins at 6:30 pm with a lecture presented by Thor Erickson from 7:30-8:30 pm.


This exhibition focuses on a Nordic value-driven food system that has captured the attention of world-famous chefs and home cooks alike over the past 15 years. The 2004 Nordic Food Manifesto articulated a set of values for approaching food through the lenses of local production, seasonality, ethical production, and innovation. The manifesto has sparked a robust dialog about food culture, both in the Nordic countries and around the world. By examining Nordic food trends in a light-hearted, interactive format, this exhibition introduces visitors to contemporary Nordic food and its driving values today. This exhibition was organized by the Museum of Danish America, Elk Horn, Iowa.


This exhibition is sponsored by Scan | Design Foundation.
