Chefs from Canada, the Faroe Islands, Greenland, Iceland, Japan and Norway created a special tasting menu of whale and seal dishes to showcase how these valuable resources are used in different cuisines, and to highlight the potential for more innovative use of marine mammals in modern gastronomy. The chefs’ menu, served at the evening food court, was prepared during a hands-on culinary workshop. The menu and recipes will be available as a cookbook.
