Giles Coren Calls René Redzepi's Noma a 'Grim Scandy Cold Food Fuck Dungeon'

New, 5 comments

After the announcement that René Redzepi's Copenhagen restaurant Noma landed the #1 spot for the third year in a row on the "World's 50 Best Restaurants" list, Times (UK) restaurant critic and author Giles Coren tweeted: "I see that mouse-faced little cunt Redzepi won best restaurant in the world for his grim Scandy cold food fuck dungeon. Good times!" Coren followed up with more: "i'm in a TERRIFIC mood. i just think rene redzep can go fuck himself to death with a foraged prawn. xx"

Some context: Coren once went foraging with Redzepi for a Times story — an IFWRRP — but things didn't turn out too well. In an interview, Redzepi told Eater about Giles back in 2010: "He's a really really nasty bastard... He's one of those guys that his biggest interest in his life is to make himself famous.... He was a really disappointing journalist." It's probably unlikely that Coren will visit the upcoming Noma pop-up in London.
