A few pictures of life returning to the garden…
Michael Pollan’s In Defense of Food http://kosmorama.no/program/gourmet-cinema-in-defense-of-food and NOMA – My Perfect Storm http://kosmorama.no/program/gourmet-cinema-noma-my-perfect-storm
In connection with both films I am collaborating with Trondheim’s leading restaurant Credo in putting together the most diverse locally-sourced winter food ever in Norway, if not the world…. ;)
After the Michael Pollan film on Thursday 9th March, participants will be able to sample one of my multi-species edimental dishes and other snacks, see a cavalcade of pictures from over 50 of my fantasy salads and other multi-species dishes and there will also be a Food Talk with myself, the film’s producer Michael Schwartz and Credo’s Heidi Bjerkan and local farmer and supplier of gourmet raw ingredients Carl Erik Nielsen Østlund! As Pollan concludes, Eat Food, Not too Much, Mostly (a diversity of) Plants!
After the NOMA film on the day before (Wednesday 8th March), guests can purchase tickets to a dinner at Credo or Jossa Mat og Drikke (upstairs at Credo). The Extreme Salad Man (that’s me!) will be at the Credo dinner and will inform the guests about some of the weird and wonderful veggies from Trøndelag to be included in this 10-12 dish meal. A multi-species dish will also be served at Credo!
Please join us for one or both of these two unique film-food diversity events!

All ingredients in my multi-species dishes apart from a simple dressing will be freshly harvested either outside in the garden, from my cold cellar or from living rooms in the house without additional heat, lights nor freezer (no greenhouse). My previous winter diversity records can be seen by following the links below! How many will it be this time? ;)

NB! TRONDHEIM and Trøndelag is the best place anywhere to grow tasty veggidiversity!
Inspired by my visit in the spring to Tokyo’s underground blanching of Udo (Aralia cordata), see link below, I dug up a couple of roots that I will force inside the house in late winter :) I will keep them cold in the cellar and then move them into probably my living room to force in February!
The Norwegian name for ostrich fern is strutseving (ostrich wing) and fiddleheads are now appearing in my kitchen window, two months before they will be out in the garden. It’s easy to dig up some roots of this spreading species in the autumn. I left them outside in these pots until about a month ago. I’m leaving these first relatively small fiddleheads to grow, so as not to kill the roots (they will be planted back in the garden to recover).
