Copenhagen Cooking celebrates Nordic Food
Noma has just been named the world’s best restaurant for the second time in a row, chef Rasmus Kofoed won the World Championship for Chefs in January this year, and the restaurant scene in Copenhagen is buzzing with newly opened, cutting-edge eateries…
No wonder the entire city sizzles when Scandinavia’s largest food festival, Copenhagen Cooking, celebrates Nordic Food with more than 80 events 19-28 August.
Michelin Stars on a Budget
One of Copenhagen Cooking’s sure sell-outs is ‘A Taste of Copenhagen”, where some of the best restaurants in Copenhagen offer their menus at bargain prices. In 2011 all of the participating restaurants are Michelin-starred, with the likes of Noma, Kong Hans, AOC, Kiin Kiin, Kokkeriet and Søllerød Kro participating. Be ready at your keyboard, when tickets go on sale on Wednesday 10 August.
Find the Best Nordic Food at ‘Kødbyen’
The rejuvenated ‘Kødbyen’ (meatpacking district) invites you to sample the best food the Nordic region has to offer as 30 to 40 top Nordic restaurants serve tastings focusing on local produce and food traditions. ‘Kødbyen’ also provides the authentic backdrop for a makers market offering a universe of Nordic flavours: coffee, wine, cocktails, ice cream, chocolate and other delicacies.
The respected Danish daily, Politiken, will award its gastronomic prize, The Nordic Fork, to the best dish as chosen by you (and the other visitors at Nordic Taste).
Nordic Taste takes place on Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 August – ensure your ticket(s) at Madbillet.dk.
Three Days of Wine Tastings and Events
Copenhagen Wine Forum invites all wine-lovers to three days of moutwatering wine tastings and a wide range of interesting events. They will create the biggest wine-shop ever seen in Scandinavia at Forum Copenhagen for you to explore and make some great deals.
Should your head start spinning from the many wine tastings you can sample delicacies from the acknowledged gourmet restaurants, Kokkeriet, Relæ and Acquamarina, at very sensible prices.
Copenhagen Wine Forum kick-starts Copenhagen Cooking on Friday 19, Saturday 20 and Sunday 21 August – ensure your ticket(s) at CopenhagenWineForum.dk.
