In Denmark food is steeped in tradition and custom. It is seasonal, fresh, local and can be sustainable.

Celebrating those attributes, we have been awarded status as European Region of Gastronomy for 2017. In a time when food is homogenised and fast food chains dominate we are rethinking Danish cuisine to keep it alive and tasty. Traditional with a twist. The new Scandinavian Food of the Central Denmark Region plays a role in linking city to village, and our country to the world.

In 2017 we set our gastronomic tables to foster conversations about authentic agricultural practices and to invite our friends to a feast of ideas and fabulous foods, foraged, cultivated and raised here in Europe’s food bowl.
