At Home With

We ask the greatest food people of Denmark to create a home dining experience for a smaller group of guests. It can be breakfast in your back yard, a seven course meal for a full evening of fun or afternoon tea and cake in your allotment garden. It is entirely up to you to showcase what inspires you in the kitchen. At Home With is a popular category and the perfect platform for you to show the guests who you are as a chef and as a person.

Beer Me Up

The Beer Revolution is still going strong in Copenhagen. Our national beverage has been given extensive culinary love and the beer scene has never been as composed or delicious as it is today. The golden drink is deeply rooted in Danish culture and we want to honour that tradition by pairing hops and barley with new food experiences. We would like to hear your take on how to unite beer and food in innovative ways - cheers!

Unique Locations

We have searched high and low and marked out extraordinary hideouts on our Copenhagen treasure map - with food in mind of course. Eat underneath the ground, on a rooftop, in the middle of the canal, at the airport hangar or inside the metro. Copenhagen is one of the most beautiful cities and we want to showcase and celebrate our love for it during the festival. The experience has to be out of the ordinary and add a little extra spice to everyday life.

Heroes of Hosting

We host the excellent waiters, restaurant managers and hosts of Copenhagen that make sure to satisfy our every need as guests and create the best possible dining experience. This is your chance to take a small number of guests to your own favourite restaurant and share the stories and experiences from a life front of house.

Sound of Food

Does food taste different if the music played is hip-hop or a classic symphony? Can you taste if the chef is fan of Miles Davis? The way food tastes can be affetced by the music we listen to. And menus and courses are affected by the music the chef listens to and is inspired by. We want to highlight the correlation between music and food in this category where we taste music and listen to the food. 


Craftmanship of Food

Taste the sustainable and local produce that is the foundation in Copenhagen restaurants. Get to know about the interaction between countryside and city and how gastronomy is tightly connected to farmers and craftsmen.
