Want to win dinner at Noma? Here’s how

Copenhagen restaurant celebrates pandemic heroes by offering free meals for when travel is permitted.

Know someone special who deserves to be recognised for their heroic efforts during the pandemic? Noma, chef Rene Redzepi's Copenhagen restaurant, ranked Best Restaurant in the World four times, will be re-opening in June, and wants to hear about them.

As a thank you and acknowledgement of what we have all been through, they are inviting people from all over the world to nominate their “pandemic heroes” who, along with a guest, will be invited to dine free of charge.

The heroes could be anyone who made a difference in their community - big or small - something as simple as delivering groceries to a neighbour, or as demanding as being a nurse or doctor in a Covid ward. What is important is that they made a difference. Danish heroes will be invited to dine on the opening night, and 100 places have been reserved for international heroes. Nominations can be submitted on the website, and the closing date is Thursday, April 1. A few details are required, specifically, your reasons for nominating your hero and how they have impacted you and your community. Winners will be notified by Friday, April 23rd, and treated to a full tasting menu and beverage pairing for two people, when travel is permitted, although travel and accommodation is not covered.

You can submit your nominations on Noma's website.
