At Geranium restaurant in Copenhagen, Rasmus Kofoed draws inspiration from the sea, respecting the natural rhythms of nature he crafts nature’s bounty into stunning masterpieces of gastronomical art.
Kofoed pursues perfection in everything he does, whether he is competing for the Bocuse d’Or, which he has won bronze, silver and gold, or serving guests at his three Michelin star restaurant Geranium, located in the Denmark national football team’s stadium.
Yet his starting point is always nature and in this short film we can see him interact with the sea, standing on the shore waiting for inspiration which comes in the form of underwater kelp, the round smooth stones on the beach, or just the sound and smell of the sea.
We can see Rasmus also at work during his recent masterclass at the World’s 50 Best Restaurants awards which took place in Singapore. Geranium climbed to an exceptional 5th place position in the annual listings, a confirmation of the chef’s dedication, discipline and creativity.
Sustainability is the goal for many restaurateurs, but in Singapore it has its own unique challenges and rewards. Fine Dining Lovers spoke to the chef-owner of Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants award-winner 'Restaurant Labyrinth' to find out more.
