They say too many cooks spoil the broth, but you can never have too many attendees and participants at the Kuks International Gala Festival of National Fare, which this year took place on October 23 at City Hall. It was an occasion for furious networking and a chance to find out more about the world, whether it was the organiser’s global reach or at one of the numerous embassy stands. Among those present was DR Koncerthus head Leif Lønsmann.
