Noord News: Joncarl Lachman In Philly

“It won’t be a Noma knockoff. It will embrace ingredients and techniques found in traditional Northern European cookery, but will ultimately be far different from the New Nordic schtick made famous by René Redzepi.

Smoked fish, pickled vegetables, and rotisserie meats are some of the dishes he rattled off as examples.”
