Fine Dining for All: How Chefs Fed Communities During COVID-19

The first live event of the National Nordic Museum´s Nordic Talks series will explore how fine dining pivoted during the COVID-19 pandemic, serving households that are food insecure or adopting new business models. COVID-19 pandemic lockdowns, curfews, quarantines, and stay-at-home orders exacted a heavy toll on fine dining restaurants. However, creative chefs and resilient restauranteurs responded swiftly with innovative solutions to continue serving the public and protecting their staff. Among the panellists is Finnish Chef Sasu Laukkonen from the Michelin-starred ORA Restaurant in Helsinki; Jeanette Koustrup Duus, head of JunkFood, a project founded by award-winning Danish chef Rasmus Munk to serve the socially vulnerable; and Zach Pacleb, Chef and Co-Founder of Brothers & Co in Seattle. The conversation is moderated by Seattle Times food writer Jackie Varriano. 


2:00pm - 3:00pm PST //  11:00pm - 12:00 am CET.
