TEDxKrakow - Trine Hahnemann - I am a chef therefore I cook

Trine has worked as a chef for over 20 years and has cooked thousands of meals, working with farmers, scientists, architects and people all over the world to improve food culture. Her dream is that everybody in the world gets one decent meal a day. Her books, The Scandinavian Cookbook and The Nordic Diet, have introduced many people to the New Nordic movement that has come to influence so many of the world's top kitchens over the last few years. New Nordic is about cooking, connecting with the landscape and the farmer and growing our food and eating in a sustainable way. What's surprising is that it doesn't come from France or Italy, the cradles of classical cuisine, but from the cold northern Scandinavian countries. Like Poland, these are countries where the food culture is old, but the restaurant culture is new. We invited Trine to come and show us her Nordic style and to contemplate what lessons could be learnt by other, related, food cultures from the success of this movement. As it's difficult to talk about food without eating it, a Nordic Lunch at TEDxKrak?w was an integral part of her talk! Check out some of her recipes on Trine spoke at TEDxKrak?w, an independently organised TED event which took place on 20 October 2011 at the Manggha Centre for Japanese Art and Technology in Krak?w, Poland. Our theme was "The New Normal" and we asked our speakers to tell us about what we might just have to get used to once the dust settles from the various ongoing geopolitical, financial and environmental crises. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations).
