“Our philosophy is to combine gastronomic experiences with Scandinavian design classics from the baroque era to the present day,” say entrepreneurs Lo Østergaard and Rud Christiansen, as they present their coffee table/cookbook, Royal Smushi.
The enterprising couple are conquering the world with their fabulous designer cafés, Royal Café, opening outlets in Copenhagen, Tokyo and Beijing.
They have joined forces with Danish-born, Asian-trained chef, Frederik Jensen, focusing on Danish cuisine with their ‘smushi’, contracting the Danish ‘smørrebrød’ (the famous Danish open-faced sandwiches on dark rye bread), and the Japanese delicacy, sushi. In Royal Smushi the trio presents the fabulous interiors of the cafés alongside hands-on recipes for the most beautiful, and yummy, smushi.
