Copenhagen Cooking & Food Festival: Frederiksberg Harvest Feast

The Copenhagen Cooking & Food Festival kicks off today with the Frederiksberg Harvest Feast; the long-standing keystone of the festival. Leafy Frederiksberg Allé is closed off from traffic to make way for a 500 metre long-table and 1400 diners, all armed with their own crockery and utensils. The three-course meal is set by a different chef depending on your placement in the dining stretch, but all have a similar allegiance to sustainability and seasonality that are the motifs of Danish cuisine. The communal dinner has not only become the festival’s tradition but a city staple, and is emphatic of Copenhagen’s unique blend of urban ingenuity and country kinship.
