Ten Days Of Cooking In Copenhagen
From 19 to 28 August 2011 Copenhagen will offer a feast of temptations for foodies. Among the many gastronomy events around the city is MAD FoodCamp, with the chef from the world’s best restaurant – Noma, Rene Redzepi.
At the MAD Foodcamp festival site at Refshaleøen in Copenhagen, visitors will have the opportunity to meet chefs from all over the world, eat at food stalls, talk to a number of Denmark’s most ambitious farmers, observe grazing livestock and buy fresh, high-quality produce.
The size of the fruit and vegetable market will be the largest ever seen in Northern Europe and will feature wild as well as cultivated crops from the seas, woods, fields and beaches of the Nordic region. Knowledge on subjects like soil quality, vegetation, hay and compost will also be shared. There will also be numerous workshops, food installations, demonstrations and food talks.
The main forces behind the festival are René Redzepi and Claus Meyer who started the world-renowned restaurant Noma and more recently the Food Organisation of Denmark, whose aim is to further the quality of Danish gastronomy and produce.
