Copenhagen Cooking 2013 celebrates social food, illustrated by their signature photo by acclaimed photographer, Stine Heilmann, and inspired by the iconic painting “Hip, hip hurra!” from 1888 by P.S. Krøyer.
The Danish capital sizzles from Friday 23 August to Sunday 1 September 2013, when Northern Europe’s biggest food festival, Copenhagen Cooking, takes the city.
This year Copenhagen Cooking celebrates social food as well as other enticing culinary categories, like Nordic summer and world food.
Join the Danish foodies, and us, for a ten-day frenzy of delectable delights…
New Nordic or Taste the World
The Royal Danish Library invites you to sample the best food the Nordic region has to offer as top Nordic restaurants, and choice food suppliers, serve tastings focusing on local produce and food traditions at Nordic Taste on 24-25 August. Whereas the normally very busy Prags Boulevard is transformed into a gigantic, and very diverse, street kitchen under the headline: Diversity Party – Taste the World on 1-2 September.
Innovative classics and Nordic summer
Acclaimed chef, Anders Aamann, is famous for rejuvenating the classic Danish ‘smørrebrød’ (a.k.a. open-faced sandwiches on dark rye bread) and is joined by some of Denmark’s finest chefs as he teaches guests the tricks of the trade at his open sandwich workshop on Sunday 2 September.
Should you prefer the more traditional ‘smørrebrød’, pay a visit to Restaurant Kronborg, as they serve a traditional lunch platter inspired by Nordic summer, accompanied by a beer menu from local artisan brewery, Nørrebro Bryghus, from 23 to 31 August.
