Noma’s chef and co-owner Rene Redzepi has once again been short-listed for the Time 100, a list compiled by the magazine of the most influential people in the world. In 2011, he made the top 100, finishing in 95th place.

In his online bio, Time credits the 34-year-old chef’s concept of New Nordic cuisine with “giving Danes a sense of their gastronomic heritage and in the process forging an internationally embraced style of cooking that, through its reliance on locally foraged plants and indigenous meat and fish, conveys a strong sense of time and place”.  

Time also commended Redzepi’s organisation of the annual MAD Food Camp and commitment to finding a sustainable future for food, and this year simply described his occupation as “chef”. Last year, he was the “patron chef who likes to pick flowers”.

Visitors to Time’s website have until Friday to cast their votes for a group of 200 plus “leaders, artists, innovators, icons and heroes” chosen by the magazine, which will then reveal its top 100 on April 17, just 13 days before Redzepi finds out whether Noma will continue to be known as the best restaurant in the world for a third successive year.
