Noma Australia will open for ten weeks in January 2016 at the harbourside Barangaroo, Sydney location where chef René Redzepi plans to explore the ‘incredible diversity’ of Australian ingredients. #nomaaustralia

Illustrious Copenhagen restaurant Noma is taking its show on the road again: It announced last weekend that come January 2016, it will shutter for 10 weeks to host a pop-up in Sydney, Australia. Noma is no stranger to such jetsetting — earlier this year it set up shop at Tokyo's Mandarin Oriental hotel — but in this video, chef-owner Rene Redzepi explains exactly why the team has chosen Australia. Says Redzepi: "The national animal is the kangaroo. That sort of sets the tone of how different things are here."
