Sigurd Bergflødt, researcher in sociology (OsloMet), will present some perspectives and findings from the article «Hommage ou Rebellion? Le rôle du modèle culinaire français dans la culture de l’alimentation norvégienne» (Amilien, Bergflødt & Hegnes 2021) :

In this article, they ask how Norwegian food culture is inspired and influenced by French food culture:

«French cooking is considered by many to be the most prestigious and respectable cuisine in the world, and its influence is reaching wide. 

They address three main issues that can contribute to an understanding of the French culinary influence on Norwegian food culture. Further, they ask if Norwegian food culture, as well as New Nordic Cuisine are becoming more autonomous from French food cultural hegemony. And finally; What does French cooking really mean to Norwegian chefs?»
