Locals and tourists can now enjoy typical fresh Arctic food in Kalaaliaraq, Nuuk’s new gastropub: shrimps, dried fish, Greenlandic beef, muskox, just to name a few.
The mind behind this food revolution is 31 year old master chef, Inunnguaq Hegelund, willing to prove that although there are not many chefs in the Arctic, there is a lot of power in using the local food.
For the first time, in fact, food is not only sold fresh in the fish Kalaaliaraq fish market, but also served cooked as delicious Greenlandic gastronomy.
But this experience is more than just eating typical food: Hegelund’s ultimate dream is for Greenland to become more self-sufficient in developing food, including vegetables.
Eating locally is a sustainable choice for both social and environmental reasons, and it could be healthier too!
