ANNE NIVÍKA GRØDEM
CULINARY & CREATIVE RENAISSANCE WOMAN
Anne Nivíka Grødem is one of Greenland’s most multi-faceted creative minds with a sharp eye for style and innovation. Under the moniker of Greenlandic Foodlover, she shares with the world her love of making beautiful things – both visual and edible – out of those
ingredients which are readily available. In an Arctic nation like Greenland, transport and access can be a challenge, especially in winter. Working within this unique framework only helps to showcase Anne Nivíka’s creativity even more. From food festivals
and handsome paperback cookbooks distributed in the national grocery boutiques, to her own special recipes featuring local (and often self-caught) Greenlandic ingredients, all that Anne Nivíka creates is polished and thoughtful. She wants to challenge her
fellow Greenlanders to think outside the box. Everyone knows how to make a savory reindeer stew, but you would be surprised how many are not so familiar with vegetables. In one particular booklet, “Frozen Vegetables”, she shows how, even if it is frozen, it
does not have to be boring. Anne Nivíka’s latest ambition is to open ”Mamaq – Nuuk by Mouth”, a culinary culture house for local gastronomes, families and tourists alike. Here guests can hear stories, meet chefs, make their own creations and generally strengthen
their bond to Greenlandic culture through food. Anne Nivíka also happily consults with others entreprenuers to gain inspiration from each other. Discover more about Anne Nivíka’s work and features at her website nivika.gl.
