Today most people who follow restaurants know noma, yet few outside Denmark realize Redzepi is far from a lone maverick.
It may be the best restaurant in the world, but noma has a lot of interesting and creative competitors in its own country.
Malling & Schmidt is widely considered to be the most important restaurant in Denmark outside of noma.

"Greeting, Hokosa," said noma, and she stretched out her hand to him.
Now again the horn blew, and in the bright moonlight the slight figure of noma could be seen advancing towards the stone.
Then they descended and left him, and would have led noma with them from the tree.
