This scenic and sunny island is home to an outsized, vibrant food scene where the back-to-the-roots locally-sourced philosophy kickstarted by the New Nordic movement is taken to a whole 'nother level. And the island's long history of making do with whatever they had around them has met a sophisticated generation of talented chefs putting Bornholm on the culinary map. Today Bornholm has two Michelin stars and some well-known dishes that are a must-try when visiting the island.
The wonderful produce and local seafood of Bornholm has set the stage for chefs to make their food shine. While there was always great smoked fish, oils, cheeses, and other food, the award-winning restaurant Kadeau put the island officially on the foodie map, winning its first Michelin Star in 2016. Since then they've inspired a growing food scene on the island.
