Noma

The pièce de résistance of our weekend away…Lunch at the ever popular Noma.

Just a few of the delights we encountered over a long lunch.

Tucked away in the boat yard of Copenhagen, Noma was voted the number one restaurant in the world again this year. Lucky enough to get a table, we had lunch there on the Saturday afternoon of our weekend away.  The menu was split in two halves, the little canapy starters came out at a rapid pace followed by the larger plates more slowly accompanied by complimentary wines. The attention to detail and delicate presentation of the dishes was superb and everything had a story behind it. From eating the contents of a plant pot with radishes sunk in an edible soil to a light sponge cake that evaporated in your mouth everything was thought out to a new level. Seasonal and foraged ingredients were key to every dish and all carefully prepared upstairs. Every dish was a ‘photo moment’ and I wanted to share my favourite to show how inspiring food can be…

Granola, Copenhagen

Granola (Frederiksburg, Copenhagen) is the place to go for Breakie. Both Mornings while we were in the city we ate in this little 1930’s inspired cafe and both days we were not disappointed. Cinnamon toast with homemade chocolate spread, yoghurt with fresh fruit and granola and a little pancake and fruit compot was devoured on day one and day 2 saw the whitest egg with a sunshine yellow dippy centre and rye bread. Faultless and highly recommended if you are ever in the area.

K O D B Y E N S F I S K E B A R, COPENHAGEN

Set at the back of an old car park in an old meat market, Kodbyens Fiskebar is the perfect sunny afternoon hang out in the city. A scattering of deck chairs sectioned off outside to relax on before wandering inside to the cool and stylish restaurant were ideal to enjoy the sun.  The contemporary and rather fresh interior was clad with white tiles and stainless steel with a cylindrical bare fish tank to one side. The food was superb and the presentation on my baby vegetable starter was so fresh and inspiring. I would recommend anyone visiting to go and check it out. Reported to have a lively night life also…

Baby vegetables – Lammefjorden – a fresh and summery presentation.

Some of my Purchases in Copenhagen…

Some of the little things I bought on my weekend away…

Pink and orange wrapping papers and masking tapes from Butikno as mentioned on previous post. Neon string and punch out note-book from Dora as also previously mentioned. Ribbons, ceramic dish and blue printed paper from Notre Dame. Parcel tags from Tiger.

 

Shopping finds in Copenhagen continued.

Some more cool shops I passed in Copenhagen…Mumuland had some lovely quirky ceramics and AeStetik, a jewellery shop, had a great window display made of card and emulsion paint. Both in Frederiksburg where we were staying. Notre Dame, towards the city centre, had a fantastic array of all things homeware. Everything from storage baskets to tableware, this was a really large and inspiring place to look round. Unfortunately wouldn’t permit any photographs but I bought a beautiful printed dish and some ribbon.

Butikno – Printed paper and Homewares

A great little shop down one of the quieter streets in Copenhagen. Crammed full of printed papers and decorative homewear there was so much to look at in such a tiny space! One of my favourite shops I came across…
