Denmark is enjoying a culinary golden moment, with The New Nordic Cuisine made famous throughout the world by Noma, voted the world’s best restaurant for the second year in a row, and Rasmus Kofoed, winner of Bocuse d’Or 2011, the unofficial world championship for chefs.
In February, the winter edition of the foodies’ favourite festival, Copenhagen Cooking, invites you to feast on the very best of Copenhagen’s cuisine and the season’s bounty.
It is difficult to choose between the many events at Copenhagen Cooking but we are sure your palate will purr from pleasure if you indulge in lumpfish roe a.k.a. the caviar of the North, Nikolaos Strangas’ scrumptious desserts or Denmark’s gastronomic gold, ‘Smørrebrød’.
