ANTS ON A SHRIMP REVIEWED
“Ants on a Shrimp” probably wasn’t meant to be a commercial for NOMA. But, here we are. Coming off a recent string of foodie documentaries that either directly involved NOMA or around that world, something doesn’t play right. Why is NOMA making such a mainstream push for recognition? Didn’t being called the world’s best restaurant nearly 4 years in a row bring that acclaim? When is enough…enough?
Rene Redzepi is an interesting figure, but I feel like I’m seeing him pop up too much in recent foodie material. The documentary is a fun look at what it takes to move a restaurant across the world to create a menu rather fast. It’s just that culture and culinary needs gets shoved aside to make the narrative matter. Maybe I’m old fashioned, but I prefer food over personalities. Enjoy it if this is your scene!
