Wild coastal herbs and homegrown vegetables from Bornholm are among the locavore treasures that have made restaurant Kadeau Bornholm a hot ticket. Headed by a team of chefs native to the rocky island, Magnus Koefoed, Nicolai Nørregaard, Rasmus Kofoed (not the Rasmus Kofoed of Copenhagen’s Geranium), the restaurant is located in a converted seaside shack by the sandy southern coast.
Kadeau Bornholm took culinary writers by storm when they opened in 2010. And in 2011 the restaurant opened their Copenhagen Kadeau restaurant serving their famed creative cuisine, almost instantly earning their first Michelin star. Unlike its island twin, their Copenhagen restaurant is open during winter months, allowing urban diners to experience the full richness of the island’s food roots. Kadaeu also runs a Copenhagen bistro with Bornholm cuisine, called Pony.
