Thursday, March 29th, 2012

CPHmade seems like a concept whose time has come. The network has grown from six members when it was inaugurated in September 2011 to 40+ in March 2012. One of the first to get on board was the makers of exquisite furniture, Rud. Rasmussen.

“We wish to celebrate and promote the products and shops which are uniquely Copenhagen. The ones you can find only here,” says Asger Daugbjerg, founder and partner at CPHmade.
CPHmade is a new network for businesses which develop and/or design – but definitely produce and sell – their products in Copenhagen.

Unique Products with an Interesting Story
“We try to identify what is unique about the city – in this case Copenhagen – and particularly the products which are unique with a story that will be attractive to locals and visitors alike,” says his business partner, Brian Engblad.
The two entrepreneurs run a successful business consultancy, GlobeEight, specializing in innovation and sustainability, and founded CPHmade in September 2011. They were both born and raised in Copenhagen but due to their consultancy work travel throughout the world and have lived in the USA and Singapore, respectively.
Brian Engblad adds: “We have both seen our fair share of airports and main streets on all continents. We started CPHmade because we wanted to move away from the trivial and mainstream and focus on items which possess a certain kind of authenticity, history and dedication in the production process.”

More about CPHmade
Find more information about CPHmade, the members of the network and about the guided tours to the workshops of select members (tours conducted in English will be available from April 2012).
And remember, most of the members of CPHmade sell their wares less than a ten minute bike ride from Avenue Hotel.

Rasmus Kofoed, winner of the unofficial World Championship for chefs in 2011 and Head Chef at gourmet temple, Geranium, was expected to be awarded acoveted Michelin star, when the Michelin Guide hit the streets on Wednesday 14 March.

When the prestigious restaurant guide, Michelin, hit the streets on Wednesday 14 March 2012 four new restaurants in Copenhagen were awarded one of the coveted Michelin stars.

Michelin Guide shows a New – More Adventurous – Style
Rasmus Kofoed, winner of Bocuse D’Or 2011, the unofficial World Championship for chefs, and Head Chef at gourmet temple, Geranium, was expected to win one of the stars.
It was more surprising that laid-back, slightly hippieish, Restaurant Relæ in eclectic neighbourhood, Nørrebro, was awarded a star alongside highly professional but low-key Grønbech & Churchill and almost suburban Den Røde Cottage.
Some Danish gastronomes find that the unexpected recipients of the stars signify a new – less stuffy – style from the Michelin Guide…

More Information about the New Michelin Restaurants
Find more information about – or book a table – at Geranium, Restaurant Relæ, Grønbech & Churchill or Den Røde Cottage.
And remember most of the Danish restaurants with Michelin star(s) are less than a ten minute pleasant bike ride from Avenue Hotel.
