The Copenhagen Cooking festival is the time to visit Copenhagen if you are a foodie! The whole city is bustling with food fairs, pop-up restaurants and various food themed happenings. This August my friend and I visited the newly opened restaurant BROR for a wine tasting during the festival. We were placed at a table with three other food enthusiasts and we all had a wonderful time. Here are some shots of our menu starting with crispy pig’s ears.
Take the bull by the balls… literally! Fried balls. Taste like anything else deep fried. Consistency a bit like sweetbread.
Looks like a pile of scraps and some of it was, but despite the scary look of it, this wolffish dish was incredible. We all couldn’t wait to dig our forks into it and hunt for the good pieces. Fermented kohlrabi, hazelnuts and more wine.
Eyeballs with mushroom pesto. Don’t think about it, just pop them into your mouth. Pop… ? Wrong choice of words when talking about eyes?The meat of the lamb cheeks with a crunchy salad and creme fraîche to wrap in pancakes.
The wine tasting was arranged by the sommelier of BROR and by the owner of the wine store SKÅL. They were battling for the best pairing, so for every dish we had two glasses of wine, all of them natural wines. They also supported their choices with an explanation and I learned a lot about natural wine in general.
Wonder what BROR will serve next time I go!?
