The World’s Largest Nordic Food Festival Pops Up in Los Angeles

För ett tag sedan var det nordisk matfestival i New York.  I New York besöktes festivalen av ca; 4000 besökare och 200 journalister. Nu är det snart Los Angeles tur att få prova på den nordiska matkulturen. Den 20, 21 och 28 oktober är det dags för den allra första NORTH Pop Up Festival i Los Angeles. Pop up eventet är mindre än festivalen i New York sker i samarbete med det nordiska livsstils showroomet Austere. Roligt att den nordiska matkulturen får lite international uppmärksamhet tycker jag.

Nordic chefs and personalities recently wowed New York foodies at the annual NORTH Nordic Food Festival. Through over 40 events, visited by some 4,000 New Yorkers and 200 journalists, ranging from pop up dinners to street food fests and cooking classes - The Big Apple was taken over by more than 30 Nordic chefs who demonstrated why Nordic cuisine has been called “the most influential culinary movement since the 1960’s”. And this fall, it is Los Angeles’ turn to experience Nordic cuisine first hand at the first ever NORTH Pop Up Festival on October 20th, 21st and 28th.

While the New York festival spans several locations and multiple events daily, NORTH Los Angeles is a smaller and more intimate series of exclusive events. Through a collaboration with Nordic lifestyle showroom Austere in Downtown Los Angeles - NORTH LA pop up events will be exclusively held at the sleek 5,000 sq ft designer space where several of the most famous fashion and interior designers from Scandinavia are featured.

   NORTH Los Angeles will pay host to three intimate dinner events at Austere, of which two will be invite only and open to media and industry. The first dinner happens on October 20th, when Michelin starred chefs Anton Bjuhr and Jacob Holmstrom of the celebrated Gastrologik Restaurant in Stockholm will take invited press and VIP’s on an exciting tasting through the creativity of Stockholm. The evening after, on Oct 22nd, the space opens up to the public for a lavish fifteen course dinner with limited tickets available. Merging music and food and seating less than 30 people, it will be one of the most exclusive dining experiences in Los Angeles this year.

   The final event of this boutique festival happens on October 28th, when local chefs will work exclusively with Norwegian seafood - exploring the culinary bounty of the cold North Atlantic and Norwegian fjords. Preceding the seafood tasting, guests will be taken on a tour of the exciting Norwegian Icons design project by Austere Showroom founder Fredrik Carlström, who will talk about the process of finding long lost design treasures in Norway and bring them to life in a contemporary setting. This event is invite only.

Tickets for the October 21st exclusive dinner featuring Gastrologik are on sale now at
I think it's really fun that our nordic cuisine is getting some international attention. If you live in LA, why not trying to get tickets to get dinner featuring Gastrologik from my hometown Stockholm? 

For $199 you get a 15 servings menu including drinks, tax and tip. You can check out the menu on their homepage.
