SUSTAINABLE TASTE: EPISODE 5

Presented By Lexus And Condé Nast International.

MEET NICOLAI ELLITSGAARD

Lexus is proud to partner with inspirational Danish cook Nicolai Ellitsgaard whose philosophy of sustainability and curiosity mirrors the approach taken to create the new Lexus UX.

Chef at the world’s largest and Europe’s first underwater restaurant, we join him as he explores the jagged Norwegian coast in search of authentic ingredients.

WONDER UNDER WATER

The Michelin-starred Under (meaning ‘Wonder’ in Norwegian) dining room is submerged more than 5 metres below the surface of the sea. Modelled on a sunken periscope, the ever evolving seabed is on view to diners through a huge glass wall. When not cooking, Nicolai spends days with his team foraging the local landscape for fresh ingredients.

MEET THE LEXUS UX

As Nicolai travels around the Norwegian coast, the Lexus UX offers the best protection against the harsh and unpredictable climate. The self-charging hybrid offers efficiency and sustainability without compromise andno need to plug in wherever the journey leads.

 

“IT MAKES SENSE TO ME TO USE THINGS THAT ARE IN SEASON RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW.”

Nicolai Ellitsgaard, Head Chef
