Copenhagen Cooking 2012 celebrates the Nordic Culinary Heritage and invites all foodies for a ten-day frenzy of delectable delights.
With more than 140 events, there should be something for everybody…
New Nordic or Taste the World
Carlsberg’s historic Brewery invites you to sample the best food the Nordic region has to offer as a range of top Nordic restaurants, and choice food suppliers, serve tastings focusing on local produce and food traditions at Nordic Taste on 25-26 August. Whereas our neighbouring street, Rantzausgade, is transformed into a gigantic, and very diverse, street kitchen under the headline: Diversity Festival – Taste the World on 1-2 September.
Whether you prefer New Nordic Cuisine, traditional Danish ‘smørrebrød’ or want a bit of everything, the food festival, Copenhagen Cooking, will have your taste buds singing for joy. And remember most of the restaurants are less than a leisurely ten minute bike ride from Avenue Hotel.
Celebrate the Nordic Heritage
Acclaimed chef, Anders Aamann, is famous for rejuvenating the classic Danish ‘smørrebrød’ (a.k.a. open-faced sandwiches on dark rye) and is joined by some of Denmark’s finest chefs as he teaches guests the tricks of the trade at his open sandwich workshop on Sunday 2 September.
Should you prefer the more traditional ‘smørrebrød’, pay a visit to Restaurant Kronborg, as they serve a traditional lunch platter with a twist, accompanied by a beer menu from local gourmet brewery, Nørrebro Bryghus, from 24 August to 1 September.
