Danish Michelin restaurant experimenting with takeaways

Seven-day concept aims to convey the potential of takeout food

Usually when Kokkeriet restaurant serves up its cuisine, customers are seated at meticulously-laid tables and treated to an experience just as much as a fantastic meal. That’s the expectation that comes with dining at one of Denmark’s 22 Michelin star restaurants.

But now, in co-operation with the newly-launched takeaway portal Gotipster, Kokkeriet will become the first ever Danish Michelin star restaurant to offer food to go to its patrons.

“Takeaway is probably the biggest market in the food arena,” David Johansen, Kokkeriet’s chef, told AOK.dk.

“We are not so naive as to think that the concept will attract more customers to our restaurant, but we would like to think that we are part of influencing the idea society has about what kind of food you should be eating.”

Seven days of glutton 
Lasting just seven day, the takeaway concept will not be a permanent fixture at the Copenhagen restaurant, and Johansen explained that the takeaway food the restaurant will serve will not be the same as the gastronomical delights served at their restaurant.

The lower price and oven heating differences are among the reasons why the food won’t quite reach the heights of the restaurant.

“Whichever way you look at it, there’s no comparing it with the dishes we serve at the restaurant,” said Johansen.

The takeaway concept will run from October 10-16 and the price will be 175 kroner per serving. You can pre-order here at Gotipster.

Kokkeriet, located on Kronprinsessegade in the city centre, has won a Michelin star for the past eight years.
