From November 24 to December 2, enter the nexus of cool when Nordic luminaries in the arts, music and cuisine converge at Harbourfront Centre (235 Queens Quay W).

At NORDEN: The Festival of Cool, Noma co-founder and highly acclaimed chef Claus Meyer will give his first talk to a Toronto audience about the Nordic food revolution. Following this, you’ll be able to brunch on a menu inspired by Meyer’s manifesto and created by Toronto chef Anthony Rose (Rose and Sons).
