COPENHAGEN, August 23, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Students dining at Noma, the number one restaurant in the world! Hardly an everyday event, but during the food festival "Copenhagen Cooking" this is exactly what happens for a lucky group of students. For everyone else, 84 other unique gastronomic events await from 19 to 29 August in Copenhagen.
Wild herbs, roots, berries and dried scallops! Not exactly the usual diet for students. But on August 25, when lunch is served at the world's number one restaurant, Noma, it is filled with students enjoying the best of what the new Nordic kitchen has to offer.
The event is part of Northern Europe's biggest food festival, Copenhagen Cooking, which presents 85 gastronomic events during ten days in late August. The festival focuses on both new Nordic cooking and international cuisine, and since its beginning in 2005 it has been exploding in size and popularity - and so has the new Nordic kitchen.
Copenhagen - Northern Europe's gastronomic capitol Copenhagen has been known for its proud design traditions for decades, but in recent years the city has become renowned for its kitchen, which uses seasonal and unusual local ingredients such as wild herbs, roots and wild ox.
And boasting the title of the number one restaurant in the world (The S. Pellegrino World's 50 Best Restaurants produced by Restaurant magazine) and Europe's best chef (Bocuse d'Europe), Copenhagen is the gastronomic city to go to for both foodies and people with an appetite for both culture and gastronomy.
But the restaurant scene in Copenhagen is not all Michelin restaurants. A growing number of excellent eating places with reasonable prices and unique decor have opened, which is also reflected in this year's Copenhagen Cooking program.
Organic hot-dogs, beer and open-face sandwiches with a twist During the festival ones taste buds can experience both Danish beer tastings and the traditional aquavit, the world-famous "sm0rrebr0d" (open-face sandwiches) in innovative ways, as well as a new approach to the famous hot-dog.
And the new approach is organic! In fact, no other capitol in the world reaches Copenhagen's level of purchasing and consuming organic food. So it's only natural that Copenhagen Cooking goes green, and invites people to meet and greet, as well as taste, the food of organic producers, eat organic hot-dogs and experience organic markets all over Copenhagen.
