Virtual Nordic Talks: Fine Dining for All: How Chefs Fed Communities during COVID-19
May 29, 2021
2:00pm - 3:00pm PST

The National Nordic Museum will host a series of Nordic Talks, sponsored by the Nordic Council of Ministers, focused on the theme of food security and sustainability. During these talks, leading innovators and advocates for sustainable food practices and conservation will discuss solutions to contemporary issues in the areas of fine dining, food processing and packaging, and agriculture. The Museum has invited leaders from the Nordic region and the State of Washington to participate in this series of talks which will increase awareness and inspire positive actions for a more secure and sustainable world.

This series of talks consists of thematic panels led by industry leaders from the Nordic region and the United States, and discusses clever solutions to timely problems in the areas of fine dining, food processing and packaging, and agriculture. The talks in this series will be conducted virtually.

Panel One: Fine Dining for All: How Chefs Fed Communities during COVID-19

The first of the Nordic Talks series, this panel will explore how fine dining pivoted during the COVID-19 pandemic, serving households that are food insecure or adopting new business models. COVID-19 pandemic lockdowns, curfews, quarantines, and stay-at-home orders exacted a heavy toll on fine dining restaurants. However, creative chefs and resilient restauranteurs responded swiftly with innovative solutions to continue serving the public and protecting their staff. Among the panelists are Finnish Chef Sasu Laukkonen from the Michelin-starred ORA Restaurant in Helsinki; Jeanette Koustrup Duus, head of JunkFood, a project founded by award-winning Danish chef Rasmus Munk to serve the socially vulnerable; and Zach Pacleb, Chef and Co-Founder of Brothers & Co in Seattle. The conversation is moderated by Seattle Times food writer Jackie Varriano.
