Protected: What Makes a Food Tour an Unforgettable Culinary Experience?

By Lena Reininger Ardilsø

Reflecting on my experience with our food tours, I often find myself delving into cherished childhood memories. I grew up in Spain, where dining out is a way of life. My trips to Denmark, to visit my family on my mother’s side, offered a stark yet comforting contrast. 

In the past two decades, Denmark, particularly Copenhagen, has undergone a culinary transformation, evolving into Europe’s foodie capital. The emergence of acclaimed restaurants like Noma has propelled the city onto the global culinary stage. However, my childhood experiences in Denmark were vastly different.

While the Danish approach to food was rooted in simplicity, it exuded warmth and sincerity. I recall the joy of being invited into the homes of family and friends, where homemade meals and pastries were lovingly prepared. It was a testament to Danish hospitality and their “no-nonsense” attitude towards food, coupled with a clear appreciation for quality and flavor.


Today, as we organize our food tours through Copenhagen, we aim to share the essence of Danish cuisine, intertwined with the innovations of the past decade. Our tours are a journey through culinary history, highlighting the city’s evolution into the culinary capital of the Nordics.


At the heart of our tours are passionate individuals and hidden culinary gems. We curate experiences that reflect our own high standards and showcase the creativity and innovation thriving in Copenhagen’s food scene. From traditional dishes to avant-garde creations, each bite tells a story of sustainability, seasonality, and unwavering quality.

While Danish modesty may downplay personal success, we celebrate the people behind Copenhagen’s culinary renaissance. Beyond the renowned chefs and establishments, it’s the small, unsung heroes who define the city’s gastronomic landscape.

Ultimately, a food tour is more than just a culinary excursion; it’s a journey of connection—to life, culture, and people. It’s about savoring each bite and sip, immersing oneself in the rich tapestry of flavors that make Copenhagen’s culinary scene truly extraordinary.

Join us on a culinary adventure and discover why Copenhagen’s food tours are an experience like no other.
