In 2011, Rasmus Kofoed won gold at the Bocuse d’Or competition, the world chef championships. Sometimes referred to as the Olympic Games of cooking, the Bocuse d'Or is held every other year in France. Rasmus had already taken gold at the European stage of the competition in 2010 and was a hot favourite for the world title.
Triumphant Rasmus returned to Copenhagen clutching his gold statue and now runs the kitchens at Restaurant Geranium. Their modest mission is to produce meals that involve all the senses, to restore, to challenge and to enrich. Three Michelin stars for Geranium followed Rasmus' win and the restaurant has also won a coveted place on the World's 50 Best Restaurants list.
