Here's the Economist on how the Nordic region has undergone a "cultural renaissance." On the food side of things, the article focuses on Noma. Quote: "A closed society that was dominated ... by a narrow definition of national identity (say, Swedishness or Finnishness) is being shaken up by powerful forces such as globalisation and immigration. All the Nordics are engaged in a huge debate about their identity in a post-social democratic world... Chefs will prepare anything under the sun as long as it is not meatballs." [The Economist]
