Under the banner ‘Blue Gold’, you can enjoy a gastronomic afternoon boat trip, where different restaurants at the harbour will conjure up signature dishes centred on the blue mussel. February is also the month when you can encounter soup bikes in the inner city serving up blue mussels in the pot - with the whole experience being topped off with a wonderful closing dinner as a gastronomic finale.
Monday turns MAD
Another new initiative during Copenhagen Cooking is MAD Mondays (MAD meaning food in Danish), organised by the people behind the MAD symposium. Here you can take part in an informal monthly gathering and debate our food culture while learning about the food and gastronomy of the future. The event is free and participants can look forward to beer from renowned brewer Mikkeller and homemade soup.
You can also take part in an unforgettable culinary experience when ‘I’m a Kombo’ serves up ‘The Social Act’ which explores and interprets the modern framework and social context of the meal. Humour, interaction, function, innovation and surprise all play a key part. Look forward to gastronomic connoisseurs and an evening where you are sure to talk just as much with the other guests as the people you came with.
Fillet a fish, dine and quiz
If you want to get hands-on with fish, then Meyers Madhus is just the ticket. Filleting knife in hand, you will learn how to handle our friends from the deep as you help to prepare two pop-up fish dinners. After preparing the fish under the watchful guidance of Madhuset's chefs, you get to enjoy a wonderful fish dinner.
You can compete in a gastronomic quizzes while enjoying a 5-course menu, embark on a filling exploration of Nordic cuisine or visit a pop-up restaurant which invites you for a sustainable dinner at long tables to a backdrop of live jazz.
