Each 29 we arrange meetings where we serve ñoquis and talk about traditions.

Ñoquis are various thick, soft dough dumplings.
antipodes café ñoquis includes:
– 1kg potatoes
– 1 egg
– 1 tiny spoon salt (optional)
– 500 gr. flour (250 gr. to be used for cooking, 250 gr. to be used in the table)

peel, boil with salt (optional) and mash the potatoes, add the egg and mix.
wait until is not that warm and add flour mixing with both hands until you have a nice dough that you can handle to roll 1cm ø cylinders.
After you have several cylinders you can cut them in half inch (yes, 1,22 cm aprox.)
So, once you have tons of this small things you can use the fork to make the shape, well, that not the easy part to explain in text so join us next time and learn!



Run by antipodes café RESHOW is a project with the aim of reuse materials from exhibitions in new exhibitions and/or diverse cultural activities.

The first RESHOW project implied the exhibition “Stakkars oss” held in the Norsk design- og arkitektursenter “DogA” in late 2014, and the satire seminar develop by the Deichmanske Bibliotek at the Nasjonalbiblioeteket in Oslo during May 11th 2015.

Thanks to DogA and our friend Gunnar as well as to Stakkars oss, Deichmanske bibliotek and Nasjonalbiblioteket.
