In May last year, as Denmark was emerging from its first lockdown, chef René Redzepi announced the arrival of the Noma burger on his Instagram with an image of a beef patty and bun. ‘Before we reopen Noma as we know it, we will transform into a no-reservation, drop-in only, wine and burger bar,’ he wrote. ‘We want to be open for all. We need to heal, so let’s have a glass and a burger, you’re all invited.’ The pop-up was a roaring success, making Noma more of a household name than ever, and the experience inspired him to give the Noma burger a permanent home.

POETIC LANDSCAPES:DITA JACOBOVITZ
