Christian Puglisi’s Seed Exchange Feast

As part of Copenhagen’s Cooking & Food Festival, culinary innovator Christian Puglisi – of Copenhagen’s Restaurant Relæ, Mirabelle and Manfreds – invited four international chefs to join him in crafting a six-course meal.

James Lowe from London’s Lyle’s, Lennox Hastie from Australia’s Firedoor restaurant, Will Goldfarb from Room4Dessert in Indonesia, and Jakob Mielcke from Copenhagen’s Mielcke & Hurtigkarl were chosen because they share Puglisi’s commitment to nurturing produce from the soil up.

On the 24th of August, guests had a front row seat to the culinary conversation between the five pioneers, who are each shaping sustainable gastronomy in different corners of the world.

All ingredients were sourced from the Puglisi’s Farm of Ideas; a sustainable agricultural initiative located in Lejre that supplies the produce for his Copenhagen establishments. The meal was served at the long-tables of Puglisi’s Restaurant BÆST in Nørrebro and was presented with wine pairings selected by Federico Orsi from Italian winery Vigneto San Vito and Daniel Milan from Denmark’s Vexebo Vin.
