Copenhagen Cooking is a festival that’s easy to love: food, drink, and a little more food for good measure? Yes please! This year there’s an overabundance of events, including multi-course meals, kids’ events, events focusing on sustainability and exciting collaborations. We’re already lucky with our food choices in Copenhagen, and from 18 – 27 August, that luck is going up a notch.
Here are the tastiest events at Copenhagen Cooking this year:
Ten of the best smørrebrød restaurants in Copenhagen offer you a tasty treat, as well as snaps to wash it all down. You get all ten pieces (plus the snaps!) for the ticket price.
Sunday 20th August
10:30 am – 6:00 pm
Kødbyens Mad & Marked
1711 København V
Ticket Price: 185 DKK
A dinner table 150 meters long is set up on Frederiksberg Allé, with several restaurants taking part in creating a three-course meal made from organic and locally farmed ingredients. The farmers themselves are on-hand to present their produce. This is a truly community-oriented event that brings you closer to both the Frederikberg neighborhood and your food’s origins.
Friday 25 August
Ticket Price: 230 DKK
Head to chef Christian Puglisi’s organic farm for a weekend festival, including a Bæst pop-up (and this great event!), food and drink for sale, events for children and demonstrations for potential-gardeners. A great way to learn more about food, farming and, of course, get some tasty treats.
Saturday 20th – Sunday 21st August
12:00 – 9:00 pm
Farm of Ideas
Ticket Price: Free
Enjoy a gourmet seven-course Italian menu made entirely with organic vegetables. Though the dishes will focus on the traditions of the Italian kitchen, they’ll approach flavors in an innovative and creative way. The event also celebrates the one year anniversary of Italian restaurant L’Altro. This will be a real treat for vegetarians and those who want to learn how to incorporate more organic veggies (and perhaps a little less meat) into their meals!
Friday 18th – Saturday 26th August
6:00 – 11:30 pm
1400 København K
Ticket Price: 395 DKK
Tapas an Biodynamic Wines in the Culture Tower
With two seatings every night and only 14 seats per meal, this is sure to be a popular event. Rosforth & Rosforth (the wine sellers under the bridge) provide delicious biodynamic wines while you enjoy shared tapas plates in three courses. The cherry on top? A 360 degree view of Copenhagen from 13 meters up in the newly-opened restaurant in Culture Tower. A truly special experience!
Friday 18th – Sunday 27th August
5:00 – 10:30 pm
1400 København K
Ticket Price: 600 DKK
Yes, this is an expensive one, but if you can swing it, it’s a once in a lifetime opportunity. Michelin chef Hideaki Sato of Ta Vie in Hong Kong and Aamanns 1921 kitchen manager Maxim Surdu have collaborated on a ten course (Ten! Courses!) meal that combines smørrebrød with the Asian kitchen for an incredible fusion you won’t get anywhere else.
