  • Dear Trine,

    my name is Sabine. I am a freelance Trend Analyst & Strategy Consultant and a food & beverage enthusiast based in Berlin.

    Researching foodies, food & drink experts and enthusiasts all over the world I also stumbled upon your beautifu blog. I was wondering if you would be available for a short interview, giving me a little insight in Denmarks/ Copenhagens food & beverage scene?

    Thanks for getting back to me.

  • Hello verygoodfood,

    I’ve just searched your site and I’m very pleased with it. I like your blog content and design. I have a food and drink blog, which features about food and drink for all age groups.

    I would like to feature you in “My Favorite Links” section. We are always looking to feature new sites that have content relevant to our readers and would love it if you share us with your readers as well.

    Every month i get more than 2000 views on my blog. I look forward to hearing from you about being in “My Favourite Links” section, and feel free to ask me if you have any other questions about my blog.

    Thanks

  • Hi Fergus
    Yeah, I already did visit Substance and I love the place! David is so talented and a great guy. Here’s some photos from my lunch there https://www.facebook.com/#!/media/set/?set=a.10150404221049604.375970.44903639603&type=1

    Hmm, you mean that El Celler de Can Roca will be new number 1? I’m not sure. I think Noma will stay at the top for one more year. ;-) As for Faviken I’m looking forward to seeing how far up Magnus and Johan and the team will go.

  • Hi Trine,
    Just came across your great blog – We were in Paris last weekend and I see that you are booked into Agape Substance, you won’t be disappointed with David Toutain’s cooking & style, ask for table 00 I guess maybe you already have?! I will write about him soon on my blog.
    I would love to go to Noma & even Denmark for that matter :-). I get the feeling that the number 1/100 best restaurant will go back to Spain next weekend – Fäviken Magasinet should do well and is on my “List” also, we will see.
    Best regards
    Fergus

    Søllerød Kro http://www.soelleroed-kro.dk/?lang=en
    Le Sommelier and MASH http://www.mashsteak.dk/landingpage/default.asp
    Les trois cochon http://www.cofoco.dk/ltc_restauranten.php
    Ricemarket http://ricemarket.dk/

    Trine :-)

  • hello,

    can you help- we are travelling to your great city in 3 weeks time and are looking for a good restaurant for Sunday evening- i have looked around and they all seem closed- can you help???

    sam harris

  • Dear Lars

    I was sad too. Anyway, I’ve sent you an email. :)

    Trine

  • Dear Trine,

    Sergio was so sad that he don’t say goodby to you on the flemisch in Bruges!
    He would like to show you his new restaurant, brasserie and questhouse when you come to visit belgium or Holland.

    Best regards

  • I bet you had a blast at El Poblet! Quite happy and proud my blog was a source of inspiration to you. On the other side, I’d really love to go to Noma one day, you made it more appealing with every single report about it. Also interesting to know how El Poblet compares to Noma, their cooking styles seem to be quite similar.
    Greets! Alex

  • Yes! Edinburgh :-)
    I think we have four nights in town and I think I would like both the fancy stuff as well as something very local and simple and unique for the city (=fun) – just like any visitor coming to CPH and ask me for advice ;-)
    So, Tom Kitchen looks good. French touch with snails and foie gras and a lot of fish. Rib of Scotch beef dry aged for 26 days sounds good too. Yummy. The menu at Martin Wishart looks similar, but it would be lovely to do both, though it might be a bit unrealistic ;-) I better look for a couple of inexpensive places also. Look forward to hearing more!

  • this seemed the right spot for Edinburgh recommendations – is that right? I’ve not been for some time so you may wish to verify my comments … but as always, depends on what you are looking for. Of the Michelin starred spots, I would lean towards Tom Kitchin’s place http://www.thekitchin.com/ and there have been good reports from Martin Wishart http://www.martin-wishart.co.uk/main.html but I wonder if this would be as much fun.

    There are other places that I would strongly suggest you avoid – but perhaps it would be more discreet to put those in an email!

  • Should i help you for in de wulf ? :o)))) – i wonder now if they are not close in july – i’ll investigate…

  • Hey both sweet ones! Thanks for the link and the photos. I’ll make the reservation for sometime in July!

  • Hey again Trine :o)

    Sa Qua Na is the one Guillaume advised you yesterday for lunch.

    I’ll send you a link with the pics GoT has taken there last year in summer (some similarities with Michel Bras, not surprising as the chef – Alex. Bourdas – has been the chef of Bras in his Japanese restaurant for some years before coming back in France and open Sa Qua Na).

    Cheers
    Laurent

  • I’ve not been – but have heard very good reports about Sa.Qua.Na in Honfleur in Normandy.

  • Bo,

    No. Really? :-D WOW! Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
    (Actually, Adam Price is my favourite too. Søren Frank is cool and I like him a lot too, but there’s something unique and warm about the way that Adam expresses himself).

    Going back to Berlin, I really like the idea of letting Bruno decide what to drink – then I could try and guess it hehe. Okay calm down, Trine!

    I’m considering Margeaux and Facil (I have two night, maybe three). Would you swap one of them with Ana e Bruno?

    Trine

  • Hi Trine,

    Have followed your blog some time now and I think you have tied for first place on my food critic list together with Adam Price:-)

    For your June trip to Berlin I can highly recommend Ana e Bruno, located in the Charlottenburg area. I have eaten there a couple of times – latest back in July 2007.

    The food is italian (you probably figured that out from the name) both innovative and some dishes very traditional.
    If you like italian wine let Bruno decide what you should drink – you wont be disappointed.

    I heard rumors about the restaurant at one time having 2 stars in the michellin guide but never had that confirmed – in my opinion it is only worth 1.

    Keep up the good work and the eating, I really enjoy reading about it… And when you have the time, spend a weekend at Falsled in late September!

    Bo

  • You know, it was so perfect. :D I was worried that it would be awkward or embarrassing, but Rene both generous and professional as our host was (don’t know his name). When I made the reservation I did inform that it was on a business purpose.

  • :D :D

    I just spotted that you had a business lunch at noma last week – well done you! It’s a good day at the office when you’re being paid to enjoy noma!
