One of my favourite restaurants in Denmark is not even in Copenhagen, but 30 minutes drive to the north of the capital. Usually I am very loyal to the restaurants I like and it’s always a pleasure to come back to Søllerød Kro. Images from my lunch on June 22nd…

Having a meal at Noma has nothing to do with conventional fine dining some of us are accustomed to. Number 1 on the 50 best restaurants of the world list is not only about introducing us to the products from the most remote Scandinavian regions, but also pushing those ingredients…

Reserving Noma these days is as impossible as it used to be reserving El Bulli few years ago. The worldwide recognition and “world’s best restaurant” title means that people are flying to Copenhagen just for a lunch or a dinner. Obviously I didn’t think twice when Very Good Food proposed…
