Copenhagen Cooking & Food Festival

Copenhagen’s annual Cooking & Food Festival is about to get underway, with 100 food-centric events scattered across the 10 days between the 24th of August and the 2nd of September. ‘Breaking the New’ is the festival’s 2018 theme – indicative of the Danish culinary metamorphosis that has taken place over the last 15 years, situating the country firmly at the vanguard of the international gastronomic scene. The program is an amalgam of the high and low: from a hotdog competition between seven top chefs to high tea at the newly renovated Radisson Collection Royal Hotel. The festival’s bailiwick is the innovative transplanting of Denmark’s best fare into unlikely settings – tapas in a converted copper tower, a three-course vegan meal in an underground gallery. Throughout the festival, Oak will be unfolding those events that perfectly coalesce food and space.
