Time to cook down the copper mine

Crowberries

We’ve hit up some amazing locations as part of Nordic Cookery – preparing food on snowy mountains, going out to remote islands, taking helicopter tours over the North Atlantic… but the episode we have shot in Røros, Norway was a first for Nordic Cookery. Røros is a Norwegian town built on the back of the rich copper mines in the area, mined since the mid-17th century. Although they are not being mined anymore, Tareq and our crew managed to go down, meters below, and cook a recipe as part of this new episode. Røros has got it figured out when it comes to local, organic food – a collective of food producers are renowned across Norway, with Michelin-starred chefs in Oslo swearing by products from this area.
