Cook Book!

Reindeer Herders’ Cook Book

The part of the project will examine traditional knowledge related to food culture in Eurasian reindeer husbandry and develop a cook book based reindeer herders’ knowledge.

There is a need to bring forward traditional reindeer food culture in an arena for interdisciplinary research. The main goal of this part of the project is to stimulate knowledge for innovation, economic development and local value creation in Arctic indigenous areas, working at the intersection between academia and industry, between science and traditional knowledge, and between “modernity” and tradition.

The book that was created from this part of the project was awarded the prestigious Gourmand Foodbook Award grand prize and Arctic Food Culture category in May, 2018 in Yantai, China. Read about the award here.
