For a seventh consecutive year the S.Pellegrino sponsored Denmark Dining Week turned the country at the forefront of new Nordic cuisine into a restaurant festival of gastronomic proportions once again this year.
Taking place between 12 and 19 February, the event, which is known as the largest restaurant festival in Europe, attracted over 100,000 diners to tuck into set price menus at 214 participating restaurants across the country, from seaside hotels, to Bib Gourmands and Michelin restaurants.
This Year's Dining Week Highlights
Some of the biggest highlights of this year’s Dining Week were the spectacular pop-up restaurants such as 7-eleven Gourmet by Cofoco (a gourmet dinner cooked with convenience store products), Odense Zoo (the zoological garden in Odense where an African-inspired dinner was served plus a talk about the giraffe) and Parc Fermé (who served a three-course menu in a garage containing luxury cars like Ferrari and Lamborghini).
For the first time, guests also had the opportunity to include a matching wine menu, with nearly 6.000 wine menus were sold beforehand.
