Being surrounded by some of the best restaurants in the world is one of the perks of living in Copenhagen.
On the last day of Copenhagen Fashion Week I had the privilege of having lunch at the renowned Noma (named Best Restaurant in the world three years in a row by Restaurant magazine) with some of our international guests. Needless to say, it was a very unique and intense experience. Lunching at Noma takes time—a lot of time.
We spent four hours and had about 20 exciting courses. The flavors were rich and so varied, and the visual experience of each course was as extraordinary as the food. We were treated to a tour of the kitchen and in-house food lab and got to see the many chefs preparing our food. Among the many dishes were the Nordic coconut (a yellow turnip), reindeer moss, wild raspberries, and pea flower. For dessert, we had blueberries and ant purée. The latter was not horrific as one could imagine—actually, quite savory.
Getting a reservation at Noma is difficult, but if you are ever in Copenhagen, make an effort—it’s worth it!
