René Redzepi, the chef at the “world’s best restaurant,” is coming to Toronto

Northern lights: René Redzepi and the cookbook he'll be promoting in Toronto  

After scoring the coveted number one ranking in San Pellegrino’s prestigious list of the world’s 50 best restaurants for his Copenhagen mainstay Noma (overtaking the four-year reign held by his former colleague Ferran Adrià at El Bulli in Spain), René Redzepi is making his first visit to Toronto to promote his new cookbook, Noma: Time and Place in Nordic Cuisine. The Cookbook Store will be hosting an onstage interview, Q&A and book signing with the celebrity chef on October 9 at the Isabel Bader Theatre, where star-struck gourmands can grill Redzepi about his pioneering sustainable cuisine and just maybe convince him to open an outlet on this side of the Atlantic. Tickets $65 (includes the book), available only from the Cookbook Store, 850 Yonge St., 416-920-2665, cooking@ican.net.
