Check out the 8th annual Copenhagen Cooking Food Festival in Denmark, Northern Europe’s biggest food festival.
The schedule includes more than 140 culinary events between August 24 and September 2, 2012. Look for a gentleman’s gourmet tour, an oyster safari in the Port of Copenhagen, chocolate dinners and wine tastings.
You will miss today’s official opening: a chance to sample the culinary delights of Kødbyens Fiskebar (a fish bar located in the meat-packing district), an opportunity to meet René Redzepi from noma, and the chance to talk to gastronomic event managers Nikolaj Danielsen from Madeleines Madteater (Madeleine’s Food Theatre), Bo Lindegaard from I’m a Kombo and Mikkel Sander from Roskilde Festival.
Highlighted events still ahead include the “Nordic Taste” at Carlsberg, a street fair at Jægersborggade and pancakes at Copenhagen City Hall.
Lessons in behaving as a “true gentleman” include a gourmet tour and a dinner at Kokkeriet. Also on the agenda are urban garden adventures, a “crash course” in bread baking and an oyster cruise in the Port of Copenhagen.
