After all, often the best memories we have from our travels are related to food.

We hear a lot about the ‘resources’ in the Arctic – oil, gas, minerals; but not so much about the people and the wonderful food – resources that are sustainable, valuable and the preparation of which is full of specific knowledge. Food including reindeer of course! Nordlige -Norden is a celebration of this resource – and it starts today, running until Saturday evening. The International Centre for Reindeer Husbandry is taking part and has erected a lavvu in Nikolaj Plads and thousands are expected to attend. ICR’s participation is linked into the Arctic Council EALLU project (traditional knowledge, food culture and adaptation to climate change) and the local partner in Copenhagen is the Copenhagen Hospitality College. Below are pictured young Sámi chefs with the Director of the College Søren Huhlwein Kristiansen.
