divided into three different types, where one is stories set in “the dystopic future (e.g. Hunger Games )” (p. 175).

Besides the gastronomic quest to create a local and seasonal Scandinavian cuisine that would be able to rival its counterparts on the global culinary scene (in itself a considerable challenge), the Manifesto expressed ambitions in areas like public health, regional development, sustainability, animal welfare, Nordic identity building and cooperation, local self-sufficiency and innovation in the food and tourism sectors. However, it was not at all obvious how this new Nordic issue amalgam could be forged practically. Despite considerable, long
