The Copenhagen Cooking food festival runs from Aug. 24 to Sept. 2, offering gastronomic experiences celebrating the Nordic kitchen's seasonal ingredients and sustainable principles. The eighth installment of Copenhagen Cooking will feature many events including Nordic Taste, in which a number of top restaurants from primarily the Øresund Region will offer samples of their signature dishes. This year, the event will take place in the Carlsberg brewery.
Another big event will be a street party in one of the hottest streets in Copenhagen -- Jægersborggade (Jægersborgstreet), where the newly awarded Michelin-starred restaurant Relæ is situated. Relæ, which also entered the top 100 on the world’s best restaurant list this year, will be serving tastings at street level, as will many of the other excellent restaurants, coffee brewers and ecological producers.
The many events included under the Copenhagen Cooking umbrella will be divided into different categories, including Culinary Adventures, Fine Dining, Health and Climate, and The Bounty of the Sea. Health and Climate will, for example, feature tours of Copenhagen's urban gardens, while under the heading Fine Dining, you will find events like the popular Taste of Copenhagen, where Michelin restaurants offer gastronomic experiences for low prices.
This year will also feature open sandwich (smørrebrød) Chef Adam Aamann and fellow chefs when they orchestrate an open sandwich work shop at the beautiful Black Diamond -- The Royal Library in Copenhagen.
