In Defense of Nordic Food
Lisa Abend writes that Nordic cuisine barely existed when René Redzepi opened Noma in 2003 ["Top Chef," March 26]. Redzepi says that for a long time, "food was just about sustenance, never pleasure" for Danes. What absolute hogwash! Thankfully, we still have normal chefs serving normal Nordic food instead of some experimental cuisine that Redzepi and the like put together based on what they dig up from the ground and put a fancy name on.
