When you work in hospitality, you’d know that the staff meal is the most important time to charge your batteries and have some kitchen family time, it brings everyone together and prepares them mentally. One of the best restaurants in the world, and number one nominated restaurant in the world three years running, Noma takes us inside their kitchen and tells us the importance of a staff meal and what it means to them. Epic.

Danish photographer and filmmaker Simon Ladefoged captures a never-before-documented dimension of Noma, revealing what the chefs at the award-winning eatery cook for their own pre-service meal. Famed for artful Nordic dishes involving delicate, laborious work such as preening deep-fried moss and drying wafers of scallop, Copenhagen’s gastronomic mecca re-energizes its chefs with the daily ritual of a boisterous communal staff lunch, held at 5pm before the evening’s guests start pouring in.
