Youngsters dining at Noma, the number one restaurant in the world! Hardly an everyday event, but during the food festival ‘Copenhagen Cooking’ this is exactly what happens. For everyone else, over a hundred other unique gastronomic events awaits from 24 August to 2 September in Copenhagen.
Wild herbs, roots, berries and dried scallops! Not exactly the usual diet for youngsters. But during ‘Copenhagen Cooking’, when lunch is served at the world’s number one restaurant Noma on 1 September, it is filled with young people enjoying the best of what the Nordic kitchen has to offer.
The event is part of food festival, Copenhagen Cooking, and goes under the name ‘Taste of Copenhagen’. The event features five Michelin restaurants in all which serves lunch or dinner at lower prices.
This year’s participants are restaurants Noma, where you have to be less than 20 years of age, Kiin Kiin, where you have to be a student, or in company with your grandparents, Søllerød Kro, AOC and Kokkeriet. The limited number of tickets goes on sale 8 August on www.madbillet.dk
Northern Europe’s largest food festival
The eighth Copenhagen Cooking festival will present over a hundred gastronomic events during ten days in late August and early September, and the focus is both on Nordic cooking and international cuisine. This year the festival will be celebrating the Nordic culinary heritage with an extra focus on the Nordic kitchen’s seasonal ingredients and sustainable principles.
Among the festival’s many events will be ’Nordic Taste’, where a number of top Nordic restaurants will offer samples of their signature dishes at Carlsberg, a ‘street party’ in one of the hottest streets in Copenhagen – Jægersborggade (Jægersborg street) where the newly awarded Michelin restaurant ‘Relæ’ is situated, and lots of markets, tastings and one-off foodie experiences.
