It is 2 am in London and I am going to bed while the Noma-crew and many others are partying hard, which they should.
What they have achieved is monumental and René Redzepi is more and more getting in to the role of a a gastronomic statesman, respected and full of wellearned, friendly self confidence.
It was a pleasure to see him handle colleagues, press and fans so patiently and at the same time deliver the message; That his work is about bringing gastronomy further, to take it to the next level. Not in order to become a star, but in order to help.
He is truly a great dane.
