Are you taking part in the Copenhagen Cooking and Food Festival from August 24th until September 2nd this year? I covered what I believe is Scandinavia’s best food festival in both 2016 and 2017. This time, I am back to attend some more exciting happenings, but also to host one! On Tuesday, August 28th, you can join me for a four-hour long lunch bonanza where we will visit six of the best restaurants located in a vicinity of Kongens Nytorv. A good mixture of Michelin-starred restaurants, Bib Gourmand eateries, and casual gems, all serving us some of their signature dishes. Get your tickets here!

We will meet up at Kongens Nytorv, facing hotel D’Angleterre, at 11.45. Our first stop is the one-Michelin-starred restaurant Marchal, where head chef Andreas bagh will prepare luxurious snacks and accompanying beverages. All stops will offer both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drink options. Bagh is a master of balancing flavors and one of my favorite chefs in Copenhagen at the moment.
Next, we head to the new castle of Copenhagen’s smørrebrød king, Adam Aamann. Chef Max Surdu at Aamanns 1921 will make us a taste of two different open-faced Danish sandwiches. Expect traditional flavors in a modern presentation.
Nyhavn is next with a visit to Sea by Kiin Kiin – the casual sister of one-Michelin-starred restaurant Kiin Kiin. I had a wonderful lunch here last summer and have asked the owner, Henrik Yde, to serve us my favorite dish. Lobster with red curry ice cream (yes!) is also one of the signature dishes of the flagship restaurant.
Hidden in a back alley, we will find the casual Bib Gourmand-rated eatery PMY. Head chef Karlos Ponte has prepared traditional Venezuelan arepas for us, filled with braised smoked lamb and guasacaca (avocado salsa).
The main course is devoured at one of the Noma family’s new restaurants. In fact, Barr is located where the old Noma used to lie, so we will be on historic ground! Thorsten Schmidt’s signature serving of schnitzel is a must-eat for anyone visiting Copenhagen, and we will get the deluxe version! Expect truffle or caviar …
Finally, we finish off with desserts around the corner at another Noma-owned eatery – 108. It was supposed to be a casual sister restaurant, but with the exceptional cooking of Kristian Baumann, they went ahead and got a Michelin-star of their own. Our last course is a kelp ice cream with hazelnut oil and caviar. Because you can never get enough caviar …
