Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope you’re all spending it with the ones you love whether it be family, friends or your partner. I’ve invited my Mum for dinner tonight, which we’ll definitely need after a long day of shopping and walking about. We’ve just picked up the food at Kokkeriet and are supposed to heat the main courses ourselves. These pics are showing the dessert which was dark chocolate and red berry puree with a chocolate egg on top with some kind of chocolate filling and berry jelly inside. Gotipster has a really clever concept where you can order food online and this time I really felt like trying Kokkeriet’s Valentine’s Day dinner. What better way to celebrate Valentine’s day than with some Michelin food!? One of the main courses we tried was cod, mussels sauce, carrots, lemon thyme and potato puree. The other one consisted of beef, mushrooms and truffle puree with onions and red wine sauce. Everything we had was just heavenly and I deeply recommend Gotipster and Kokkeriet for some luxury takeaway!
Here are some food pics from the weekend! We had dinner at Nabo, which is Kadeau’s little brother. We’ve been fans of Kadeau ever since my sister and I had our “confirmation” at Kadeau Bornholm. We had some dehydrated carrots and some kind of soya and octopus tea that I cannot recall the name of. Then I had fried cod roe, then cod and I had a blood orange dish for dessert. Unfortunately, it had some fermented blood orange juice on it that really had a quite harsh taste. Other than that, everything was good. They also have a Monday food concept where I think they have a sort of buffet. Definitely going to try that out someday. Now I’m going to sleep because I have work early in the morning. Over and out.
P.S. My dress is from Boohoo.
Hey pretty followers! I’ve been busy this weekend because my family has been here but tonight my blog will perfectly up to date. We had lunch with my Grandparents at Restaurant Koefoed, which is a Danish (Bornholmian?) restaurant serving classic “smørrebrød” with a modern twist. The food we had was so delicious! I had the first and third dish. The first one was avocado, Rossini caviar and crab meat (which is probably my fave shellfish). The second picture was a herring fried in salt with lots of beetroot (I tasted it and it was amazing) and the third picture is of tartlets with lobster and poor man’s asparagus. Definitely a lovely place to go for Sunday lunch. The ice tea (I’m an ice tea addict – if I could live off of ice tea and popcorn I would) was really good too and the Bornholmian “honningsyp” was good too even though I’m not the biggest fan of schnapps. I hope you’ve had a great Saturday.
We just got home and it’s pretty late but I thought I’d just drop a post before going to bed. We had dinner at Nabo today, which was good but I’ll post about that later. Perhaps next week because I think you’ve seen quite a lot of food pics on my blog this week. Anyway, after dinner we tried out a cocktail bar called Helium. It’s located on Bredgade and the interior was pretty dark, mystic and cozy. It was apparently pisco sour week and since we really like pisco sours (throwing us back to Mallorca last summer where I had some piscos at Patron Lunares). So yummy! I love the foam on top and the sourness of the cocktail. The ones at Helium were decorated beautifully too. It’s definitely a place I’ll go back to with some girlfriends or my boyfriend another time but now I’m off to bed. Night.
And here’s Part 2! The 1st picture (from the top) is of a test dish we had with a fried ball of crab meat (I think?), the 2nd course was langoustine, kale and Skagen ham, the 3rd one was Jerusalem artichoke, beetroot and truffle , then we moved on to a modern take on a traditional Danish food called “hens and asparagus in tartlets”. It consisted of a quail, fermented garlic and an octopus tartlet and was surprisingly good even though I dislike both main ingredients. Everything is better in fancy restaurants… The 4th dish was venison, plums and a bitter chocolate sauce that was quite interesting. Then we had our 5th course with lamb ravioli that was also surprisingly good – perhaps a bit too intense lamb taste for my taste. Then we moved over to the desserts where we had: 1st course was cucumber, white chocolate and mint. The 2nd dessert (boy, do I love that combination of words) was lemon, caramel and sorrel sorbet with liquorice meringue on top and the 3rd dessert consisted of caramel, snow and a sorbet. Everything was really good and we were so full when we left! I was actually quite afraid that my boyfriend wouldn’t be full at all after the meal. Luckily, that wasn’t the case. They also served whipped butter (yum) and a bread that was out of this world. How come restaurant bread is so much better than regular bread that you bake yourself? Anyway, I highly recommend Kokkeriet if you wish to try Danish and “new nordic” cuisine at a restaurant with a Michelin star.
Here are some of the dishes we had at Kokkeriet last night. It truly was a magical evening and I actually liked everything that we had. Usually that’s rather tricky because I dislike poultry, lamb and all innards… Anyway, the interior was beautiful, the service was good and the food was superb. Here’s what he had (from above). The 1st snack was crispy onions, smoked cheese and löjrom, 2nd snack was cod and beetroot, 3rd was a modern take on the classis Danish hen salad, 4th was cured beef, crispy potato and pickled cucumber and the 5th was a liquid Waldorf salad. Then we had an amuse bouche consisting of crab, cabbage and chamomile. Then we had our first test dish consisting of lumpfish roe and some other things that I unfortunately do not recall. Then we had our 1st dish consisting of scallop, pear and verbena and the 2nd one consisting of pike-perch, yellow peas and pine. These two last dishes were definitely my favourites of all the starters! The roe dishes were also phenomenal. Well, I’m a huge seafood fan so I was really happy with the amount of fish and shellfish! The next courses are coming up when I’ve written the menu in the post.
My boyfriend and I have been together for 3 years today! It’s really kind of crazy and it only feels like 1 year? Anyway, I woke up to prepare some anniversary brunch for us consisting of newly baked croissants, strawberries, raspberries and blackberries, latte and hot cocoa, blood orange juice and champagne from Laurent Perrier (which was super delicious and very mild in taste – perfect for a champagne brunch). Then I gave him his gift; a dark grey robe from The White Company to keep in my apartment. I also have one i light grey, so I thought we’d have his and hers… Now we’re getting ready to go out to Rosenborg Castle and go for a walk here in Copenhagen. Tonight we’re going to Restaurant Kokkeriet, they have a Michelin star and serve modern but traditional Danish cuisine. I am super excited about it and I have been looking forward to it for weeks! We’ll probably be out late but posts are coming up in the next number of days…
