“Arctic Food is an annual arrangement in the picturesque town of Mosjøen, located in the middle of Norway.

For one weekend in september we meet for talks, workshops, demos, lunches and dinners in and around the street of Sjøgata in Mosjøen.

Trough Arctic Food we would like to promote the craft of food production. 

We thrive to raise the level of competence and knowledge with the youth, and contribute to increase the recruitment to the world of food and food production.

We want to achieve awareness around our arctic resources and a sustainable approach to them.

Roots

In our part of the world, growing food might sometimes be hard. The seasons are short and many, and the climate can vary from clear sky and sun, to freezing temperatures and blistering snow. In reward though, we also get long and endless days with a lot of light. That combined with the low temperatures, makes our vegetables grow slowly and build up a taste that is sweeter and less bitter.

However, for us, roots is so much more than the numerous root-vegetables that you can find. Even if we are talking about roots in a cultural or biological context, roots are in many ways a storage of energy and has the purpose of anchoring a body to the ground, and supporting it.

Roots have the power to destroy concrete and to stabilize soil. Some roots have the ability to heal, and been used for centuries to cure illnesses. Some roots on the other hand, have the ability to kill, like the nuún, the root of a Lonchocarpus, which the Nukak people of the Amazon uses to hunt fish. For us in the western part of the world, more known as rotenone and used to cleanse our rivers and lakes of the parasite gyrodactylus salaris.

Roots are also about family, culture and our legacy. This year we pay special tribute to the indigenous people of Scandinavia, the Sami people. This year is a year, of celebration for the Sami people as the 100th anniversary of the first Sami congress is marked. The first congress was initiated and led by Elsa Laula Renneberg, who lived a large part of her life here in the area around Mosjøen. The congress played an important part in the work towards giving Sami people, all over Scandinavia, their rights. 

Our roots also influence the way we live, learn and teach. Our roots create and mold our culture, which again is a product of the things we pass on from generations before us, sometimes slightly adapted and altered. 

In September, we will also try to highlight how trade and culinary exchange with other cultures have played a large part in influencing our roots and culinary heritage.

So with these words, we hope to see you all in September!

THE STUDENTS

Unlike most food events, ArktiskMat is arranged by a school. Our culinary and agricultural students are very important as both participants and executors of the arrangement.

This is the third year that Mosjøen Videregående Skole ( Mosjøen upper secondary school) have been in charge of ArktiskMat.

Through the weekend, the students have the role of hosts, assistants to guest chefs and speakers, and cooking together with other experienced chefs.  At ArktiskMat, our students and young chefs have a fantastic opportunity to learn by both doing and listening as well as engaging in discussions with leading food experts.

In a way, it is run by and for the next generation of chefs, producers and food explorers.

We also welcome students from all parts of the world. Actually, everyone that can document that they are cullinary/agricultural students will have free access to all the talks and demos! (Dinner not included)

(For more info on how to participate if you are a student, please contact us at ingtei@vgs.nfk.no)

Mosjøen, Norway

ArktiskMat is arranged in the picturesque town of Mosjøen, located right in the middle of Norway. It will take you one hour to fly from Trondheim to Mosjøen and six hours by car or train.

All of the events during ArktiskMat will take place in Sjøgata.

Sjøgata in Mosjøen is a vibrant, living district with shops, cafés, accommodation, galleries, art exhibitions, preserved buildings and antique objects, a museum and much more. Many of the houses in the street belong to ordinary locals who are used to tourists walking through their gardens or peeping in their windows.

The street is about 400 m long, with Vikgaarden in the north end and Fru Haugans Hotel in the south end.

Most of the talks will take place in Jacobsenbrygga (the museum), but there will also be activities at both Vikgaarden and Fru Haugans Hotel.

The opening will take place at Jacobsenbrygga at 10.00 am Saturday 15.09.17
