|Me with just a few of the 40 chefs at Noma.|
Anyway, my mum decided that she would take me with her as she knows I love cheffing. I was so excited! In the end we took my dad, too, so the three of us went off to Copenhagen (my brother and little sister came with us but didn't get to go to Noma - Granny looked after them for the day in the city).
When we got to Noma, it was sooo cool. One of the chefs came out to meet us and take our photo outside, and then took us indoors. They were all expecting us, and knew my name and said hello to us as we came in. There are 40 chefs who work at Noma, and most of them were gathered round the door when we arrived just to welcome us!

We were treated to a 26 course meal! (There might have been even more, but when we thought back we got to 26, plus coffee).
|Very creative foods - a broth inside a kohlrabi.|
|Danish cake balls, with a twist - dipped in grasshopper.|
|Squid in a bowl made of ice.|
After every few courses, they brought a different kind of drink.
|Just a few of the juices.|
The whole experience was brilliant. The bit I liked best was a tour of the kitchens at the end. One of the chefs, called Hamish, took us round and we saw the three kitchens, the outdoor barbecues, the staff dining room and all the chefs being busy getting everything ready for the evening.
