Arctic Food

S 13 (US Season 7) EPISODE 05

In today’s episode, Andreas visits Spitsbergen, the Norwegian settlement at 78 degrees north. In spite of the perpetual cold, and barren surroundings, the area is home to some of the world’s richest fisheries. Andreas also forages for arctic mushrooms and meets what is probably the world’s northernmost farmer. Onboard a research vessel Andreas makes a lightly cured cod with beetroot and anise, he cooks freshly caught cod and serves it with charred leek, and back on the island he makes crispy seared cod served with snow crab and Arctic mushrooms.
