Náttúra by Kitchen Theory

Nordic cuisine seems to be talked about everywhere! What is it that has been keeping Noma, Fäviken and Dill in the Worlds Top 50 Restaurants list year after year? We have found the answer: an utmost respect towards nature and seasonality, top quality produce, beautifully delicate flavours and an exciting twist of modernist cooking.

Our team of Michelin-trained chefs are back with another exciting series of multi-sensory events and this one takes diners on a culinary journey through nature with an evolving seasonal menu created in partnership with local foragers, fisherman, farmers and hunters .

This event is not to be missed! Think Noma, without the hefty price tag and 1 year waiting list.We have used the New Nordic Cuisine Manifesto as our framework for this event. For more information read the cultural concept behind Náttúra.

  1. […] 12 September-December The pop-up food masters behind Kitchen Theory have been making quite the name for themselves over the past few months, with a series of innovative sell-out events and collaborations with top chefs. Next on their agenda is Náttúra, a long-running Nordic-inspired pop-up offering a six-course menu based on ‘the beauty of nature’.

The Northern Lights dessert of green apple, chocolate mousse, blackberry cremeux, chocolate crunch and chestnut ‘silver sand’ also sounds like one to see for yourself. Dinners cost £56 a head. Náttúra will be held at Maida Hill Place, 4 Fernhead Road, W9 3ET. Tickets can be booked here. […]
