He and his brother had multiple newspaper delivery services and worked for a local store so that they could contribute to the family’s income, as money was very tight for his family. When he was 15 years old, Redzepi left high school. He went to restaurant school with a friend. After choosing a culinary career, Redzepi trained at a local family-owned Michelin starred restaurant called Pierre André in Copenhagen, where he had an apprenticeship that lasted 4 years. When he was 19 years old, he went to work at Le Jardin des Sens in Montpellier in Southern France.
Redzepi first visited El Bulli as a guest in 1998 and subsequently worked there during the 1999 season. Back in Copenhagen, Redzepi started working at Kong Hans Kælder, which had been one of the city’s leading gourmet restaurants since the mid-1970s. In December 2002, when he was 24 years old, Redzepi was contacted by Claus Meyer, who had been offered to operate a restaurant at the North Atlantic House, a former 18th century warehouse which was being turned into a cultural centre for the North Atlantic region. Redzepi sources much of his food locally and does research by foraging for food in the wild. He said that this comes from his time living in Macedonia, where food was local and fresh.
