An Unforgettable Food Experience

The second annual Nordic Culinary Conference will bring several internationally renowned chefs, including keynote Danish culinary entrepreneur Claus Meyer, to Nordic Heritage Museum to discuss and demonstrate Nordic cuisine and cooking philosophy this spring. The Nordic Culinary Conference is an immersive program, featuring demonstrations and tastings that explore the unique qualities of both traditional and contemporary Nordic cuisine. Lectures delve deeper into cooking history, technique, and the internationally impactful Nordic food revolution.

The 2017 Nordic Culinary Conference has confirmed the participation of the following chefs:

Claus Meyer, an instrumental force in bringing the Nordic food revolution into international awareness.

Gunnar Gíslason, Executive Chef at Agern in New York City, and the chef and restaurateur behind the critically lauded Dill in Reykjavík, Iceland.

Sasu Laukkonen, chef and owner of the Michelin star-awarded Chef & Sommelier in Helsinki.

Titti Qvarnstrom is the first female chef in Sweden to receive a Michelin star. She is the co-owner of Bloom in the Park – recognized as the Best Restaurant in Sweden 2015.

Kalle Bergman is a Swedish-born food writer, media entrepreneur, and Nordic food expert, widely considered one of the foremost authorities on the subject in the United States.

Nordic Heritage Museum is proud to once again partner with Tom Douglas’ Hot Stove Society to bring this exciting culinary program to Seattle.

Conference events will be held across two locations: Nordic Heritage Museum in Ballard, and Hot Stove Society’s dedicated culinary facility in Belltown, located within our conference partner, the boutique, Scandinavian-designed Hotel Ändra.


Keynote speaker and culinary entrepreneur, Claus Meyer


New Nordic Cuisine has unquestionably become one of the hottest and most celebrated trends in 21st century pan-Nordic arts and culture. The movement found its beginnings with the renowned New Nordic Kitchen Manifesto, where a commitment was made by a coalition of pan-Nordic chefs to freshness, simplicity, health, and the presentation of foods that also reflect the surrounding landscape. What followed has been a global recognition of Nordic cuisine, both contemporary and traditional, as one of the finest and most unique offerings in the culinary arts anywhere.

We’re thrilled to welcome Danish culinary entrepreneur Claus Meyer as our headliner and keynote speaker. Claus will share insights from his rich culinary journey including serving as the principle architect of the New Nordic Kitchen Manifesto, his co-founding of the internationally acclaimed restaurant Noma, and his latest restaurant ventures in New York City.

He will be joined by Icelandic chef Gunnar Gíslason of the renowned restaurant Dill in Reykjavik, which recently became the first restaurant in Iceland's history to receive a Michelin star rating. Gunnar moved to New York City in 2016 to open and work with Claus Meyer as the Executive Head Chef of the also recently Michelin star-awarded restaurant Agern.
