From label to practice: Creating new nordic cuisine

Haldor Byrkjeflot, Jesper Strandgaard Pedersen, Silviya Svejenova Velikova

Research output: Conference paperContribution


This paper adds to the study of nascent collective identities by examining the emergence, legitimation and contested expansion of New Nordic Cuisine in the last decade. We show how what started as a largely professional initiative, soon grew to encompass an important political and, later, also a social dimension. We delve into the symbolic and material practices of chefs, entrepreneurs, politicians, and scholars in shaping the movement's nascent identity.
