Caveat! Gastronomes might be trampled in pursuit of this black gold

There is never a wrong time for caviar – unless maybe at the end of month or when you are really hungry. But where should you go when the sudden urge for the black gold occurs? Copenhagen has options for different situations: whether you are killing time at the airport, shopping in the city centre or you just want it delivered right to your door. 


Seafood Bar

Copenhagen Airport, Lufthavnsboulevarden 6, Kastrup; 
www.caviarhouse-prunier.com/copenhagen-store

Why not stop by the seafood bar Caviar House and Prunier in Terminal 3 for a little snack or the store in the airport’s departures lounge? 

Or try the online store and have the goods delivered right to your door. 

Its Beluga caviar – known as the finest and most expensive one – is unfortunately not available at the online shop at the moment. 

But perhaps you can have the next best thing, the Oscietra caviar. Prices start at around 1,700 kroner for 30 grams.


Torvehallerne

Frederiksborggade 21, Cph K; hav.dk, www.torvehallernekbh.dk

If you, like me, enjoy browsing around Torvehallerne on any given day and are in the mood for some Beluga caviar, then stop by the fish shop (hav.dk.)

The kilo price of their Iranian Beluga is set at no less than 40,000 kroner, which means that you can purchase 30 grams for around 1,200 kroner. 

Since caviar should not be eaten with a silver spoon, because it can affect the taste, the shop also sells bone spoons at 89 kroner a piece. 

Some caviar lovers though would suggest that you dispense with the spoon and eat with your fingers. 


Lomos Food Shop

Holbergsgade 17, Cph K; 
www.cph-smokehouse.dk/dk/lomos-food-shop.html

If it’s French caviar you are craving then I suggest you head to Lomos Food Shop on Holbergsgade in the majestic area behind Kongens Nytorv. The little shop offers some of the finest food products from France, Italy and Spain.

    How to lead Danes IV – Cultural Bypassing

    Many of us Danes, despite being well-educated and well-travelled, often lack experience in navigating cultural differences at work. This can lead to ‘cultural bypassing’, where we believe we are at a level of enlightenment where we no longer are burdened by the risk of making cross-cultural mistakes. As their manager, you can help your Danish colleagues by acknowledging cultural differences in the workplace.
