ANTS ON A SHRIMP: NOMA IN TOKYO is an exploration of creativity and inspiration, and a journey of discovery into the people and places, sights and sounds, tastes and flavours, of one of the world’s most amazing food cultures.

In January 2015, Noma, recognized as the World’s Best Restaurant, and led by its charismatic chef René Redzepi, moved its entire team from Denmark to Japan. Known for his one-of-a-kind cooking and for distilling the Danish landscape and ‘time and place’ onto a plate, can Redzepi and his team apply their philosophy to an entirely foreign experience, using ingredients that they’ve never seen before, all whilst under the intense pressure and scrutiny that comes with running the world’s best restaurant?
