Created by chef Martin Berg, one of the early proponents of
the New Nordic food movement, ARKET café is based on the approach to
traditional foods, healthy ingredients and ethical production that was
formulated in the New Nordic Food Manifesto (2004). One of the
main goals of the manifesto is to work in close dialogue with local
producers, and to innovate and improve the overall quality of our
food; another to combine the best from Nordic cuisine with impulses
from abroad, and to create new applications for traditional products.
By developing a menu of simple everyday recipes, ARKET’s mission is to
democratise foods and tastes previously associated mainly with fine dining.
