Downtime: Deliciousness at Home

Written by

Nadine Levy-Redzepi


26 October 2017

Who's the author: Nadine Levy-Redzepi is one of the key team members at Noma, the internationally acclaimed, two Michelin-starred restaurant in Copenhagen opened by her husband René Redzepi. Cooking is a central part of Nadine's life, not just at Noma, but in her family kitchen, where she draws on inspiration gathered from her travels and experience of Copenhagen's thriving restaurant scene to create fantastic food at home.

What's it about: A celebration of home cooking, in Downtime Nadine shares the recipes she loves to cook for her family, from fried chicken to lasagne, and some seriously delicous desserts. The influence of her time at Noma is evident in the tips and tricks she shares throughout, but this is by no means an intimidating restaurant cookbook. On the contrary, this is a guide to cooking easy and comforting food at home that the whole family will love. 

Recipes we love: My Mother's Chicken Curry, Danny's Fried Chicken, Danish Apple Dessert and Giant Macaron Cake.

Perfect for: Anyone looking for new ideas for comforting dishes for any occasion, whether that's an intimate family meal or a dinner party to impress.
