Nordic by Nature – Michelin Stars

This fascinating culinary documentary follows the endearing yet brutal everyday life of the Faroe Islands and its culinary pearl, two-star Michelin restaurant KOKS.

The Faroe Islands are an ancient microcosmos of exciting products, Nordic history, a thriving seafood industry, stunning landscapes and eccentric personalities. Prior to COVID-19, people took immense detours to dine at KOKS, an eatery serving food sourced from just 500 square miles of produce, in a rugged terrain and subpolar climate, with average temperatures close to freezing throughout the year, everlasting light in summer and scorching darkness through winter.

Filmed over an 18-month period, Nordic by Nature dives into the poetic mind of young Faroese chef Poul Andrias Ziska, exploring the traditions, history and distinctive ancient practices that lie beneath the world's most remote fine dining experience.

Five years after his successful Michelin Stars: Tales from the Kitchen, director Rasmus Dinesen returns with the story of young, down-to-earth chef Ziska and his team, attempting to combine local cooking traditions with modern cuisine amid the beauty and wilderness of the Faroe Islands.

Content Warning: Contains scenes of animal death.
