So, I'm guessing most people on here will have at least a passing familiarity with the New Nordic Cuisine that's been making serious waves over the last 5 years or so. For those not fully aware, the idea is very much influenced by French terroir. Only ingredients produced within the Nordic countries are used, while tastes tend towards the pure and fresh which is supposed to reflect the ambience of the region. This means a lot of the food is raw, cured or pickled and not so much of it is grilled or pan-fried. Also, many of the ingredients are foraged wild. What I'm wondering is if there is any sign yet that influences from this style of cooking are spreading to the US, and whether it's something that people in the US would find appealing. As someone who spends a lot of time in the UK, the influence is just starting to become more visible there and I'm wondering where else this might be the case?
