One of the world’s best restaurants, Rene Redzepi’s Noma, is currently based in Sydney with a 10-week pop-up at the Barangaroo development.
A meal there costs $485 per person and all 5000 places sold out within seconds of going on sale last year.
One thing that might surprise people enjoying the 12-course meal that features plenty of native Australian produce is that there’s no bread served with the meal.
Redzepi and his team have been working on their baking and today announced they’ll be selling loaves to people, but with a wonderful pay-it-forward principle underpinning them.
The Noma loaves cost $15 each, but when you buy a loaf, another one is donated to The Wayside Chapel in Kings Cross to help feed people in need.
Noma says it has 15 900-gram loaves today, baked by Irish-born Louise Bannon, for sale on a first-come, first-served basis. It plans to bake more in the coming days, with the restaurant reaching the halfway mark in its Sydney stint.
Redzepi and his team have also been working on a home-made version of Vegemite during their time in Sydney.
