Luna Palace Cinemas says
Luna Palace Cinemas and Umbrella Entertainment are delighted to announce a special Q&A event for the opening night of NOMA: MY PERFECT STORM at Cinema Paradiso on Thursday, February 11.

Guests will enjoy a glass of wine on arrival before the screening of Pierre Deschamps’s documentary about the four-time winner of the world's best restaurant and the man behind it, Copenhagen chef Rene Redzepi.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with ex Noma chef and Western Australian Paul Iskov and Dale Tilbrook, founder of the Maalinup Aboriginal Gallery, whose knowledge of Australian native ingredients helped inspire the Noma Australia menu.

Noma in Copenhagen is renowned as the best restaurant in the world, and has the accolades to prove it. But what of the man behind the ingenious gastronomy of Noma who has managed to completely change the way food is explored the world over?

René Redzepi is that man, and NOMA: MY PERFECT STORM charts his rise as an outsider chef shunned by the restaurant establishment, who retreated to the culinary outpost of Copenhagen to quietly revolutionise the entire world of gastronomy, inventing the alphabet and vocabulary that would infuse newfound pedigree to Nordic cuisine and establish a new edible world, all while radically changing the image of the modern chef.

His story has the feel of a fairy tale, but beneath the polished surface, cracks appear in the form of old wounds. 2013 stands as the worst year in Redzepi’s career, when he lost the coveted Best Restaurant in the World award after winning it three years in a row. We follow him as he fights his way back to the top, reinventing Noma and attempting to reclaim the title in 2014 for the fourth time.


Paul Iskov
After working at Noma in 2012, Paul Iskov moved back to his native Western Australia and started his own unique Australian pop up dining experience Fervor. Fervor’s mantra is to focus on locally sourced produce, presenting it in a unique location to create an unforgettable degustation dining experience.

Upon arrival in Australia, Rene and the Noma team heard about Fervor and reached out for a long overdue catch up and to find out more about Paul’s business and how they could include Western Australian produce for the Noma Australia menu.

Now that Noma Australia is open for business and the menu is out, we now know that Rene’s choice of Western Australian snow crab highlights some of Australia’s best produce being sourced from Paul’s home state.

Dale Tilbrook
Dale, who founded the Maalinup Aboriginal Gallery, is a descendant of the Wardandi Bibbulmun people from the Busselton, Margaret River, Augusta area. Dale has a background in retailing and marketing and a special interest in natural products.

Dale's connection with Rene Redzepi and Noma came about from her knowledge of Australian native ingredients, local foods and the bush tucker ingredients in the ranges stocked by Maalinup and now featured on the Noma Australia menu.
