René Redzepi: In His Own Words

REDZEPI: I'm not gonna be here all my life, no. It's impossible. It would be, it would not be fair to Restaurant Noma that I were to be there and just repeat myself at one point I'm over. I need to go and another head chef needs to come in if there is anybody that wants the challenge and that dares somehow. But I think it's a natural way of, a natural evolution that—you have a period where, where your creativity and so on is high and as we are a restaurant that's known for creativity constantly evolving that's what we need to do all that time. And one point I will have nothing more to deliver to that project. I know for a fact, it's just the way things are and then I'll have to do something else, go somewhere else. I don't know find a way to reboot yourself. Somehow, if it's possible, or find a new head chef that can take it a step further.

You'll come to New York?

REDZEPI: Perhaps! (Laughs)

What does food mean to you?

REDZEPI: Well food is life. Food is culture. Food is em… food is people. Food is everything, and then again, food is not always everything. Food is what—is the fuel of human beings.

Are you an angry eater?

REDZEPI: I can be angry, but not very often… I think most chefs become angry once in awhile. You have deadlines at 12 and at 6 where you have to be ready. But, you know, I'm a human being. Is it nice to be angry? No, it's not nice to be angry, so I do everything I can not to be angry, that's for sure. If you have a day where you are angry, you're not having a good day, you know, you're just having a bad day, even when you go home, so, so that's for sure something that's a small part of our cuisine. Anger.
