Renowned chef René Redzepi (one of Time's '100 Most Influential People') is never one to shy away from a challenge, and the one he's created for himself in Ants on a Shrimp is a doozy: he and his crew are packing up shop from Copenhagen-based Noma (four-time winner of the title 'World's Best Restaurant') to start fresh for a five-week pop-up in Japan with an entirely new 14-course menu. What follows is a delectable behind-the-scenes look into the tremendous expectation involved in such a daring venture. We watch his staff as their childlike experimentation elevates ordinary food items into extraordinary dishes.
