Get ready to have all your dreams about new Nordic food come true in August. Copenhagen Cooking festival will take place in Copenhagen from the 22nd – 31st of August. For the 10th year in a row Copenhagen Cooking is filling the Danish capital with more than 100 unique food events for all tastes; for children and grown-ups, and whether you are a novice or genuine connoisseur within the world of gastronomy. Now is your chance if you’ve ever dreamed of dining in two Danish top chefs’ private apartment, joining a jam-making workshop in a bramble thicket, or sampling a royal banquet in the royal kitchens at Christiansborg Palace.

Go check out the programme and make sure to buy tickets for the events you want to join before they sell out.

A touch of history

Two of Copenhagen’s most historic buildings, the National Museum of Denmark and Christiansborg Palace, are also making themselves available for unique food events. Christiansborg Palace is opening its doors to the large royal kitchens, where food has been prepared for countless royal gala dinners in the Great Hall upstairs. Usually the kitchens are closed to the public, but during Copenhagen Cooking, guests will be able to visit the kitchens and taste samples from the royal table.

Have a bite of the park and the streets

It’s not just out in the countryside that you find wild plants for cooking. Copenhagen also has edible parks. Wild food and finding raw ingredients in nature is a growing gastronomic trend, one which is being celebrated by Byhøst (City harvest) when the Wild Festival is held on Amager Fælled, a large area of common land to the south-east of the city centre near the airport. Here, among other things, there will be a jam-making workshop in a blackberry thicket, and guests will be invited into the pop-up restaurant Buskads (Thicket’).

These are just some of the events lined up. With more than 100 I’m sure you will find something for you. Have fun x

      Yes! Good timing on your part, Mel. I know what you mean – so many things to do and so little time. But I guess you can sneak one of these events in – the hard part is choosing which one. There are sp many good ones to choose from.

      Have a great day and thanks for always stopping by. You are a sweetheart! xxx
