Join the Halcyon Stage and the Embassy of Denmark on March 2, 2017 6:30 PM at Halcyon House for a lively conversational throw-down about food the modern world.
Claus Meyer has always been motivated by goals that stretch far beyond the profit-motive. From writing the manifesto for the Nordic food revolution and co-creating Noma – a perennial “World’s Best Restaurant” – to launching an indigenous food movement in Bolivia that trains thousands of young people and unlocks a new sense of national pride.
Addressing issues such as the importance of unconventional thinking and naïve ambition, the how-to for creating an avalanche-like cultural movement rather than a traditional business plan, and the reason behind why we – and our teams – need to remain in close touch with our values and passions if we are to be truly successful.
This, “son of the microwave oven,” will share insights from his gastronomic, business and philanthropic journey including his latest ventures in New York City, to his experiences with Michelin-starred restaurant Agern and Great Northern Food Hall in majesty Vanderbilt Hall, Grand Central Terminal.
