Danish Home Cooking
In the summer you can have breakfast, lunch and dinner. We were there with VisitDenmark and had dinner. What an amazing experience. Our knowledge of the danish home cooking is not that good. In all honesty, when I think of Denmark and food I only think of the danish pølse – a red sausage. Meanwhile this was a totally different experience! This is truly a prime restaurant that is also recommended by the White Guide.
White Guide is a Nordic version of the world famous Michelin star restaurants. Countries that are involved in the White Guide are Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland, Greenland, Iceland and Estonia.
And after the dinner we had, I can really understand why this restaurant is recommended in the White Guide.
Our dinner experience @ Frøken Koch
The restaurant is really rustic and beautiful. First of all, the company is always important for the experience and our company was great. A lot of journalists and photographers talking about travel and writing. Needless to say that I was in heaven!
The starter was a huge shrimp sandwich. I have never either seen or been served such a huge starter before. Fresh shrimps on really good bread and just simply amazing!
The main course – Ribs with potatoes and lingonberries. This was also a huge portion and so good. The bones would just leave the meat and the meat melted in the mouth. I do believe that Mini and I were the only ones that actually finished of the whole main course. The talk around the table was mostly on how much food that was served. For a high quality restaurant to serve such huge portions is truly unique!
And lets not forget the desert! lemon fromage with heavenly treats in a wineglass that was humongous! The result of this fantastic dinner was that we all rolled out of the restaurant.
You know the feeling you get after a christmas meal or after thanksgiving? Well this was the exact same feeling as a result of loads of food!
