The programme is all set and Copenhagen Cooking this year offers a broad selection of events: Workshops in popular Nordic virtues such as fermentation of wine and berries, street food as well as popular crossover events, which undoubtedly will present the guests with an abundance of emotions on the plate. So bring your food-craving family with you – both kids and adults are more than welcome.
At this year’s festival theme, Taste of Emotions, prominent chefs such as Erwin Lauterbach, Søren Ejlersen, Rasmus Kofoed, Claus Meyer, Søren Gericke and Mads Refslund are in charge of the food.
- Our participants have been incredible at coming up with new ideas for this year’s Copenhagen Cooking programme, which clearly shows in the variety of new and exciting events, says Julie Hildebrandt Hæsum, program manager for Copenhagen Cooking.
Street Food included
Street food has been a highly valued trend abroad for a number of years and Denmark has now joined the cause. Copenhagen, in particular, has embraced the street kitchen, initially with Torvehallerne and latest with Copenhagen Street Food on Papirøen (Paper Island), where Food Tours during the festival will host the tour Taste the Street and serve delicious samples from exotic finger-food to gourmet hotdogs.
Street food will be taking a much larger role than ever before in this year’s food festival programme. Taste the World will celebrate the diversity of Copenhageners on August 23 with a huge street party with street food, spiced with music and exciting events. And on Vesterbro Torv, the Street Food Festival will open up street kitchens from four continents when the pan-asian restaurant Namnam will present a range of southern chefs and cook under the blue skies. The Street Food Festival will take place from the August 29 to August 31.
Taste of Emotions
The festival’s main concept this year is ‘Taste of Emotions’, which means the participants are to fusion food and emotions. It has resulted in a range of unique tasting experiences. For instance, behind the luscious walls in Charlottenborg’s charming courtyard you can expect an artistic food experience when the best in fine dining, wine and art exhibitions are perfectly blended at CHART | ART FAIR on August 29-31. Moreover, among historic relics, the National Museum and Restaurant Julian team up to serve a Money-menu, which is based on the historic artifacts portrayed on the Danish banknotes, all of which are located in the National Museum.
