When the 2017 edition of the Copenhagen Cooking and Food Festival kicks off next month, two of the world’s top female practitioners of the culinary arts will be among the featured chefs.

Anne Sophie-Pic from Restaurant Maison Pic, the first female chef in France to earn three Michelin stars, and Dominique Crenn, the top-ranked female chef in the US who holds two Michelin stars for Restaurant Atelier, will join chef Rasmus Kofoed from Geranium to prepare a special meal for guests on August 20.

Geranium was awarded three stars in the latest Michelin Guide for Nordic Cities 2017, and Kofoed was the 2011 winner of the Bocuse d’Or, one of the most prestigious cooking competitions in the world.

A Noma-ic legacy
Overall, a star-studded line-up of top chefs will once again be in Copenhagen for the festival, and about 80,000 people are expected to attend.

This years theme is ‘Breaking the New’. Chefs and guests will explore subjects like sustainability and the next generation of chefs and entrepreneurs.

The popularity of New Nordic and Scandinavian cuisine – and the success of Noma –  continues to keep Copenhagen up front and centre in the gastronomic world.
