"It's a great opportunity. I feel like a kid in a sweet shop! I’ve always dreamt the idea of having a kitchen garden attached to a concept, now I have been given the chance. An acre or so of prime land has been cultivated over the past few years, now its time to take the garden, and my kitchen to new heights", says Paul Cunningham.
Only a few hours drive from Copenhagen, Henne Kirkeby Kro lies a few miles from Denmark’s scenic west coast. The surrounding nature is truly amazing, unspoilt.
"I have taken The Paul ’on the road’ many times and have always been met with open arms whilst cooking in the west, happy I am indeed to be returning for this summer season," Cunningham continues.
"We are bringing our warm souls to Henne, cooking simple honest dishes with beautiful local ingredients – we are creating a real destination restaurant from Henne, contributing to the heart, passion and work that the Skouboe family have invested into Henne Kirkeby Kro from day one".
My old pal Garrey Dawson, whom I first met when he was heading Heston Blumenthal’s kitchen at The Fat Duck, has created a wonderfully strong platform resulting in Henne Kirkeby Kro’s success so far. We've spoken together often about Henne and now seems like the right time to implement the next phase of Henne’s growth.
The owner of Henne Kirkeby kro, Simon Skouboe, adds:
"Paul Cunningham has taken over the kitchen from Allan Poulsen who in recent years has done wonders for Henne Kirkeby Kro. We are delighted that with Paul and his team, we will continue to lift the inn’s gastronomic niveau even further - and looking good it is too!"
