New Nordic Cuisine is quite literally about going back to the roots of Danish cooking. It’s about getting out into the Danish landscape to forage for the best and most unusual ingredients. It’s about experimenting and presenting exciting new ways of combining traditional ingredients. And of course, it’s all about giving you the best taste and dining experience possible.
You can savour the best New Nordic kitchens in a number of Danish restaurants. Delicacies such as Nordic langoustine, wild salmon, seaweed, foraged berries and musk ox may all be on your menu. You may try recipes from as far back as Viking times. Just make sure you book a table, as the whole world now craves Denmark’s gourmet treasures.
Copenhagen is a hot-spot for New Nordic Cuisine but you can also sample this delicious food trend in other parts of the country. Head to Malling & Schmidt in Aarhus or Sortebro Kro on Funen for some excellent examples of traditional Danish dishes brought into the 21st century.
