About Foods of Copenhagen
Our high level of personal attention, expertise and professionalism is matched by our commitment to a sustainable Copenhagen. We believe in doing business in a way that supports our local food producers, our local shops, local merchants and farmers. This means we built connections and brand partnerships with local businesses who make real handmade food with a lot of passion.
Small is Good
Most importantly for our partners AND for our guests: We limit our public tours* to a maximum of 8-10 persons, so that our presence will not adversely impact our partners and the neighborhoods we love. We wouldn’t want you to have anything less than the best possible experience of the real Copenhagen.
*We do not have a limit on our customized tours as we choose different places for these – according to number of guests and wishes. We invite chefs into private settings for our guests to get unique and extraordinary food experiences.
Meet your Host
Cindie - Owner & Tour Host
After five years of studying at Copenhagen Business School and living abroad two times it was time to create Foods of Copenhagen. In September 2015 I decided to start a business with the aim to re-invent how to explore the “real” Copenhagen and its food. I can’t believe how much fun it has been and how many amazing guests I have met.
Personally, I’m allergic to big tours (no, a tour with 12 guests is not small), and my goal with Foods of Copenhagen is to stay small, ambitious and boutique. To me small reflects Foods of Copenhagen’s philosophy – more sustainable, flexible and real. This way we can ensure that our team remains close to the food and the people who makes it. It’s then easier for us to bring guests into our world of creative chefs and other food passionate people.
No matter what kind of food experience you do with us it is important to me that you leave with a wow-feeling, because my goal is to give you some amazing memories and knowledge so you want to come back to Copenhagen some day:)
I hope you get as fascinated by the city as I am. Copenhagen is so vibrant and filled with a lot of creative people that makes my job really exciting.
FIE - HOST
My perfect day would look like this: Reading blogs or cookbooks in the morning trying to find the most delicious recipe to prepare. After deciding (which takes a loooong time, not one of my finest qualities) I go on a culinary treasure hunt around Copenhagen looking for the best produce. In the evening I will be dancing around my kitchen; cooking and singing. I round up the day by curling up on the couch watching something food related to learn more about the lives of other passionate foodies.
I try to travel often and when I do, I try small food tours to get off the beaten path. I want to hear about local favorites, hidden gems and all the quirky stories, which are only accessible by word of mouth. The things that would disappoint me the most on a tour is only visiting places that I could easily find myself or without that little extra twist. With me as your host in Copenhagen, my goal is to give you the same authentic experience I am craving when I eat my way through foreign cities.
HELENE - HOST
Working as a tour guide for three years left me fed up with commercial tourism and big groups. I swore I would never work in hospitality again. Until I learned about Foods of Copenhagen.
Like the rest of team at Foods of Copenhagen I am a passionate foodie and love exploring the city in search of overlooked foodie gems. I am particularly interested in urban farming and co-op production. Some of my favourites are the co-op project Byhonning (City Honey) and the Copenhagen-based apple cider producer Æblerov.
When I’m not roaming the streets of my beloved home town in search of the next meal, I’m brewing beer with my uncle in his garage or hiking the fjells of Norway, my rucksack stuffed with rye bread, dried reindeer meat and liquorice.
When I travel my biggest fear is to be seen more as a walking wallet than as a human being. I believe most people travel because they are genuinely interested in and curious about the place they are visiting. I’m a host in Foods of Copenhagen because I love to meet people who are interested in food culture like myself and I strive to honor that interest by being genuine and showing you my personal perspective of Copenhagen.
