René Redzepi

2013-12-17

Ep. 74 - Noma chef Rene Redzepi was in the states promoting his new book "A Work in Progress", and was kind enough to come to Bronson Island to talk music and creativity with us. He tells us how he added music to the kitchen to pump up his staff before and during service, and why he asked Lars Ulrich from Metallica to write the intro to his new book. Rene also talks about growing up poor in Denmark and how big a deal it was to buy his first albums- which were Andrew Lloyd Webber's Phantom of the Opera and David Bowie's soundtrack to Laybryinth. Rene also tries to turn Zach onto Einstürzende Neubauten, and admits that meeting Alice Waters was more exciting to him than any musician he's ever met or cooked for.
