ABOUT THE BOOK

How do you achieve greater creativity at the world’s best restaurant?

René Redzepi committed to writing a journal for an entire year to reflect on this question and the result is A Work in Progress: Journal, Recipes and Snapshots.

Three books in one, a journal, recipe book and flick book, A Work in Progress recounts the day-to-day life at Noma – from the trials of developing new dishes to the successes that come with winning the 50 Best Restaurant award. While the journal is the book’s heart, it is supported by the recipe book containing 100 brand new recipes and the flick book of 200 candid images which provide a stunning, and often humorous, insight into the inner workings of the restaurant and its talented team of chefs.

Reflective, insightful and compelling, René interweaves observations on creativity, collaboration and ambition making A Work in Progress of interest to food lovers and general readers alike.


IN THE PRESS

'The perfect package... Gorgeous recipes, candid snapshots, and a year's worth of journal entries are what you get in Rene Redzepi's latest...But that's not our favorite thing about the Noma chef's three-volume set. The package design - three monochromatic and straight-up minimalist covers, all held together by a color-coordinated rubber band - makes this title (and all of its parts) a must for any collection' Bon Appétit

‘There's no doubting [Redzepi's] genius... a profound insight into how he conceives his dishes... the [recipe] selection here contains some of Noma’s key naturalistic techniques and will therefore be of interest to many chefs cooking at a high level…a rare glimpse into one of the world’s most influential kitchens’ Restaurant

'...fascinating, gorgeously produced' Wall Street Journal Europe
