The Great Nordic Feast: London's first celebration of Nordic cuisine

20 - 22 October 2017

The vivid and soothing flavours of Nordic cuisine will take over London's Southbank Centre as eight Nordic destinations come together to serve up signature surprises for all food lovers to enjoy,  introducing high profile chefs from Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, the Faroe Islands, Greenland and Åland.

The autumn feasts will be infused with Nordic flora, talks and music and cooked using traditional Nordic techniques, over an open fire inside Scandinavian-style tipi tents on Southbank Centre's Festival Terrace.

Take a seat at either a Nordic Artisan Breakfast in the mornings or a Nordic Feast for a fire-cooked lunch or dinner:

Nordic Artisan Breakfast:
Savour traditional Nordic artisan food with tasty spreads and different butters, bread, artisan cheese, jams, berry drinks, cured meats and sausages, scrambled eggs, hot and cold porridge made with healthy Nordic grains, plus coffee and tea.

It's all prepared using traditional Nordic cooking techniques and served as a smorgasbord.
