Video: Kadeau BornholmThe Crown Jewel of the Island's Dining Scene
The crown jewel of Bornholm’s dining scene is restaurant Kadeau. Chef Nicolai Nørregaard and his childhood friends Rasmus and Magnus Kofoed transformed a humble beachside cottage into a Michelin-starred eatery which showcases ingredients native to the island of Bornholm. Kadeau was one of the first restaurants to embrace the New Nordic manifesto, and took it even further by focusing on the natural products of their small island – many of the vegetables and herbs come from Kadeau’s own garden. Our favorite dish on the new tasting menu is the signature cold and hot smoked salmon with a sauce of Havgus cheese and buttermilk, with a pesto of rosehips and wood ants, and pickled elderflower on top. The restaurant has been among the top in Scandinavia since it first opened in 2007, but now after overcoming a bankruptcy, surviving a global pandemic, and undergoing a massive renovation, the team is stronger than ever (and the new open kitchen is stunning).
